22. I can't do anything about that.
I'm afraid I cannot do much about the things you mentioned, since none of them are a crime.

That said, I sympathize with your situation - most of my family is also conservative, though I've never known anyone who carried a concealed firearm.

On the other hand, you want me to not express my distrust for you? Show me
that you are capable of instilling some level of responsibility in your
less responsible peers.

All that should be required to form your opinion is to show you the statistical data that supports my position, rather than the anecdotal evidence you are relying on.

And what the data shows is that most people who commit murder (and probably other firearm crimes as well) with firearms have extensive prior criminal histories. Which means if you know a firearm owner without such a criminal history, he is probably law-abiding and you don't need to worry about his criminal behavior.
