As it turns out, owning that particular gun made me less safe -- when I took it in for inspection I discovered it was very poorly made. The officer labeled it "a cheap knock-off Mexican Saturday Night Special" and said the odds were 50/50 as to whether a bullet would exit the muzzle or the barrel would explode in my hand when the trigger was pulled. I signed it over for destruction and never regretted doing so.
Anyway, today Leslie Fish posted this on her blog. What she says makes sense, but I'm still up on the fence. Too many nuts have guns and too many good people are killed by gun violence every day.
If any of you read what Leslie Fish wrote, I'd love to hear what you think.
