  •  So...I walked into a relative's home the other (22+ / 0-)

    day. I was there to learn how to water the plants, feed the cat and use the alarm system to watch the place while they're on vacation. I glance over at the kitchen counter and there, next to the butter and salt and pepper and a newspaper (things you'd expect to find on a counter) is a revolver.  Just lying there like any other old countertop resident.  

    The male relative in this couple is what I kindly call a "gun enthusiast" but really he is a gun nut.  

    Believe me, I have mentally taken these relatives OFF the list of people who can babysit my son.  

    Gun enthusiasts like to think that their guns are always secured and safe and unloaded...until they aren't.  I really don't want my kid around when that happens.  

    Metaphors be with you.

      say treat your guns like video games.

      There needs to be an upward shift in respect for guns and the damage they can do.

      guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?
