    Now there's your problem.

    There's idiots, fools, crazies (in the non-medical sense), the mentally ill, criminals, drunkards and druggies... and everyone else regulary has an 'oopsie' on a regular basis. There's no way getting round that.

    Any vaguely concious person realizes that a madman with a gun is more dangerous than one with a knife, that an accidental stabbing is less likely to kill or maim than an accidental shooting. How many fistfights would end not with a  ruised face or ego but a trip to the morgue if everyone was carrying a firearm?

    Guns have their place; if you are law enforcement, or out hunting, or an Olympian etc. etc. But you don't take one to the KFC because your dick is too small. You don't have them to 'protect yourself' unless there are special circumstances (say, being in Afghanistan, carrying a milliondollars or receiving credible death threats), because you or a family member or friend/neighbor is far more likely to end up dead than any would-be assailant.

    Stop the insanity.
