I never said I'm for or against gun ownership. What I said is that the only safe gun is no gun. To believe that it could *never* happen as long as one is "responsible" is naive. We all take risks and as long as we're honest about what those risks are, so be it.
You're hearing from someone who grew up and had a career in law enforcement. I have no beef with guns. I have beef with naivete and the belief that it could only happen to "those other people" and never oneself.
Eyes wide open, folks...
