I'm for more strict gun laws, and can still admit that owning a gun does not make you an evil idiot (I know parents who are gun owners also). If you know people who allow their four year old to play with guns, have you reported them to the proper authorities? Give me their names, I will.
I call bullshit.
Owning a gun does not make one an evil idiot. However, the gun owners I know are by far the worst parents. The worst adults too, perfect examples of arrested development, the exact types who should not have them. The exact types who seem overwhelmingly attracted to them. Perhaps the problem isn't that gun owners make bad parents, rather bad parents are attracted to guns.
Call bullshit all you want. play with it, roll around in it, fuck yourself with it, do whatever you want with bullshit, it won't invalidate the truth of my experience.
