Welcome to the forum - take a seat and learn.I am new to the forum so bear with me. I was a post certified police officer in New Orleans. I once was cleaning my gum, and I counted 3 times how many bullets I had taken out. After I was certain that I had taken 6 bullets out I pointed the gun toward the windshield of the police car. The something remarkable happened It was if something took my hand and pointed the gun toward the side door of the vehicle. When I pulled the trigger the gun fired, and I was devastated. My cousin was working a a Pizza Hut, and there was police officer working a detail there. The officer; who was certain that he had removed all he bullets, began to show my cousin some tricks he had learned with guns. The officer then pointed the gun toward himself and pulled the trigger; he was killed instantly. My point is even trained police officers can make mistakes with guns, so I know that guns should not be in the hands of everybody, because guns have the propensity to end the lives of people; even those that are trained. This is the reason why I Can't understand the fascination with guns
Your stories are interesting, but not confirmed/cited.
Private citizens generally are safer with guns, have less collaterial damage, and shoot more accurately than do LEOs. There are a multitude of reasons for this. I'll let you do the research, it'll be good for you.
Guns don't end lives of people....people do. Did a fork make Rosie McDonald fat?
BTW - fascination with guns.....really? I have a fascination with living safely and with a minimum amount of government interference.
