23. I'd like to see gun enthusiasts get real about kids and guns,

Proper storage, proper holstering, and not be so paranoid and afraid of their neighbors and passersby that they have to be ready to shoot in a split second. I'm tired of seeing them brush off an accidental shooting death as a tragedy, then ignore the problem that will repeat over and over, frequently to the detriment of children.

My lifetime experience includes knowing dead kids from accidents, kids with a dead parent, and other people's lives ruined because they thought that having an emergency weapon would keep them safe. For me, the accidental shootings tip the scales toward remaining gun-free.
