Would you keep a gun in your home to protect your children from burglars, etc?
Or would you not keep a gun to keep the children from having accidents?
I have seen too many accidents to allow a gun in my home. I am not against others owning a gun, but I feel it is best for my family not to own one. I also instruct my children to call home with a pass word that lets me know to come get them right away if they ever see a gun at a friends house...maybe I'm over protective, but it is my right to not own a gun.
My son is grown now, but there was a hand gun in the house at all times. He was told it was dangerous and not to touch it. If he was curious he could study it, with me, at any time. He never went near it without me present.
At present, I do not own a gun, so I don't have one in my home. However, I also don't have children either. If I had children as a part of my family and other factors were eliminated, then I would have one or two, or more in the house.
Yes, accidents could happen, but usually accidents only happen due to the irresponsibility of the owner, which is what happens in most cases.
