Now let's discuss GUNS again... What is your view on GUNS. Should civilians have the right to own a gun?

Responsability... When i was about 9 years old, i was in our basement near a tool bench. Digging behind some old coffee cans of nails, low and behold...i found my grandfathers .38 revolver. I wasnt totaly aware at what i had found, jsut that it was like in the cartoons ide watch, WOW a gun!!! I had pointed the barrell at my face, and loked down it. After a few seconds, and realizing my finger was touching the side of the trigger, a strong sense of fear and panic came ove me, and realized, what could have happened. I told my mom what i found, and hse was semi hysterical. She got rid of the gun. Makes me think to this day, what could have happened.
I myself, am a gun enthusiast and supoprter But...it does come with responsabilitys...it shuold have been locked up somewhere in any case.
