88. You're right.
Believe me, if everyone out there was courteous and behaved in an appropriate manner, I don't have a problem with gun ownership.
I may really not understand it, but I'm sure there are many things I enjoy where others may question??!! However, society being as it is, perhaps we do have to lose one freedom in order to ensure the safety of others? I just cannot bear the thought of how I would feel if my daughter were to be in 'the wrong place at the wrong time'. What the loved ones of all massacre victims are going through is so unimaginable. For all the love of ownership of guns, it still does not replace losing a loved one due to insanity and the ability to purchase guns. I don't see another way out. Guns are dangerous. Guns are available.
Guns are produced with only one capability - to shoot ammunition.
I posted a poll in the lounge regarding an individual's concept of safety. I'll be curious to see how it ends up - that is, if people honestly participate in it.
Have a good day. I'm meeting an elderly lady for lunch and then coming back to hopefully be able to watch Gonzo under fire later on C-span.
