That gun issues mostly isn't not about evil or good, but that is practical. Take for example gun to protect you self from burglars, that I understand that some American believe in the need for it ecpecially if they have a family. But if you don't live in a high crime area (everything is relative maybe most of USA have much higher crime rate then Sweden) it's more practical not to have a gun if you have children. Because the risk of getting hurt by a burglar for a normal law abiding citizen is extremely slim. But if you have small children you will always fear that they get their hands on the guns. Because if you use it for protection you have always have it close at hand, so maybe you forget it on the nigh stand table. But yes their are still people that still are scared, but then it can be more practical to get a dog and it will be a good companion to the kids. It doesn't even have to big it's enough it can bark.
