Response to WHEN CRABS ROAR (Reply #5)

Tue Dec 25, 2012, 06:37 PM

12. Thats interesting

I thought the point of increased gun ownership was to increase safety? Having guns out there in homes is supposed to be a deterrent to crimes. Knowing which houses have guns should, according to the claims of gun afficionados, increase the safety of those homes, and decrease everyone elses safety.

Now you tell me that they make a home more attractive to the criminal element?

Secondary thought: if people were securing their guns in a responsible fashion, breaking in to steal them would be a fruitless endeavor. So, if this is truely a big concern, then perhaps all those "responsible, law abiding gun owners" are not so responsible after all. And if the assertions of most gun supporters over the past week are true, then if the law changes in such a way that it inconveniences them, they will decline to be law abiding. Which pretty much just leaves "gun owners".
