    You are the type person that would make a great subject rather than citizen.
    I concur with that

    So far it's about half.

    I used to keep a sawed-off shotgun within arms length while I was sleeping at my house on the north end here in Toledo, but I just don't see any reason to in this house. It's very secure. And I rarely shoot anymore so I keep all my guns locked up. As I mentioned before, a lot of youngsters hang out here a lot. My 13 year old niece and her friends. I'm not worried about my niece being around guns, she's educated in the safe handling of firearms, it's her friends that she brings over that I don't know about. Before my brother & niece moved in just down the street a little over a block away I'd have guns laying around all the time. But now that kids are around all the time my habit is to keep them locked away.

    Nope, don't own a gun and haven't for many years. I don't see the point. I just live where it's safe.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Till its no long safe. That could be 100 years from now, or 10 minutes. Best to have and never need, than to need and not have.

    It's safe now. I don't even lock the doors most of the time. I'll worry about having a gun when it's actually not safe.

    Fine.

    But as long as you keep YELLING at people that they are liars, and as long as you keep INSISTING on telling them that regardless of what they say what they really mean is.....

    you'll end up doing your camp more harm than good.

    It's kinda like Fred Phelps and christianity.
    Do you think he was a good spokesman and recruiter for christianity?

    that's a moronic analogy.

    And yet billions manage to live full and complete lives without ever needing to own a gun. Imagine that.

    Everywhere is safe until it's not. Been here 14 years, can leave things out in the front yard and nobody steals them. There hasn't been a rape or murder in town for many years. I'd call that safe.
