21. Ok.
Back in the 80s, I felt safer when I didn't allow my then husband's friends to leave their guns in my closet when they decided to go out, or stay home, partying. They were average guys who liked their guns.

I felt safer around these good old American boys when they weren't armed.

I felt safer when I was raising my sons not to have guns in the house that they could access. I wanted them locked up, with ammo in a separate locked location.

There were times when the presence of guns made me feel less safe. Like when I was sent to visit my Dad, and he left me with my teenage step siblings, who didn't like me or my presence in their house, for a 3 day fishing trip. And told us all where the loaded gun was (in the headboard of the bed)in case we "needed" it.

Like when my ex-husband wanted to go target shooting, and take along a case of beer.
