42. Never owned a gun, can't imagine a situation where I ever would.

I dislike guns intensely. They are not allowed in my house under any circumstances.

When one of my kids wanted to move back in with us following his divorce we told him he was welcome, his guns were not. He keeps them at one of his brothers (in a gun safe). He's welcome to go hunting and fishing, but no guns in my house.

We have friends who live in the mountains of New Mexico. They need a few guns. She walked out to get in her truck to go into town one morning and found a cougar considering her for breakfast.

I don't have a problem with responsible gun owners. I do have a problem with gun nuts. Or the ones who claim that 'the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun'. (Imagine, a 'bad guy with a gun', BG, starts shooting. A 'good guy with a gun', GG, decides to be a hero and starts shooting back. Now 'another good guy with a gun', AGG, sees two guys shooting and decides to get in on the action. Who does he shoot at? The cops arrive and see THREE guys shooting. Your assignment is to write a 500 word essay on who walks alive and why.
