    called 'reasonableness"

    There's a reason why the law requires you to be reasonable in other areas (unlike  gun law ownership which gets entancled with claims of rights) . Its because everyone differs, and someone's definition of caution could include shotting  a guy who looks at them too long.

    Ultimately caution has to be reasonable or it take son the quality of a burden either on society or others. I think gun laws are at the point where they are unreasonably lenient on gun onwers. We are suppose to pretend these things are less dangerous than driving a car.
