I grew up around guns. They’re no big deal. No one in my family ever used one to commit a crime, and there were never any accidents because we all knew how to handle them safely. So the “let’s ban all guns” folks just look silly to me. They’re terrified of inanimate objects! How ridiculous can you get? On the other hand, the extreme gun-rights supporters who live in constant fear of criminals look pretty silly, too. Most of us will never be in a situation where a gun is necessary for self-defense. It just doesn’t happen to most people. Both sides need to stop letting fear control them.
