  •  it is not merely gun owners (1+ / 0-)

    apparently surveys (which may be inaccurate) indicate that more homes in America have guns than cars (cars have outstripped the buying power of American families, we have fallen behind many European nations in car ownership).

    The people who need and have arsenals of semi-automatic weapons, they are the ones we need to fear.  One shotgun or one hunting rifle, makes a gun owner, but they generally aren't the ones on a mass murder spree.  And I thoroughly agree that I am happy not to be around certain people who are too irrationally angry at the world (FOX News and Limbaugh will magnify the worst tendency in any human), to feel secure about what they would do with their guns.  Not to mention the stupid,  listening to a redneck describe how he forgot to put the safey on or the trigger lock in his gun laying on the front seat and how in a quick stop it hit the floor and shot a big hole in the floorboard lets you know you are never really safe from stupidity let alone malice.
