Since Cake is about reasonable discussions.....I would just offer up that I owned a pistol in my 30's and it always made me nervous around the house. I am not happy that our country has devolved where people thinking that having an open-carry permit makes the world safer. I do not want to pay taxes and live in a country where 2nd Amendent promoters selfishly create a culture where guns are mandatory. I am so happy I am not raising kids today....young minds and souls where not intended to process mass shootings on a regular basis nearby and afar. It does not take a brilliant person to realize that countries like Syria and Iraq will suffer for 100's of years as their infants to youth have been terrorized with brutal imagery and experiences of murder and bloodshed.
