I hope you're sitting down because I'm about to make a bold statement that you've never heard before, one that very few Americans can honestly make.
Are you ready?
Okay, here I go...
"I promise to never, ever shoot anyone."
That's an easy promise for me to make because I don't own a gun and I never will, but the rest of this country is simply slopping-over with folks who are just BEGGING for an excuse to plug someone.
In case you forgot, shooting people are what handguns are designed to do.
Think about it. You wouldn't buy a toaster and not make toast. You wouldn't buy a car and not use it to impress some sweet tail, so you certainly wouldn't spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy a gun just to stick it in your sock-drawer and wait for the kids to discover it. (Oh, wait...)
Those who own guns may someday shoot you for no other reason than you forgot to use your turn signals. Certain death awaits you at the hands of these otherwise good citizens in churches, bars, state parks or, sadly enough, movie theatres. Almost no place is safe in this country.
But my house is. That's a promise.
