I was pretty ok with gun ownership until I moved to northern PA, and got a taste of the um.. "responsible" gun owners there. Many own guns for
legitimate reasons. Many own guns because they think "it's cool." Many own guns because they like to have 18 of them ready to shoot up all the
hapless animals that might wander across their property.
Lumping all gun owners together as irresponsible OR responsible is ridiculous. There should be more checks and balances. Wonderful... it's a right.
But I think anything that has the ability to kill another human being because of irresponsible ownership, poor training, etc. should be regulated and
monitored in some capacity. Too bad so many see this as a black and white situation, because it's not.
