teddybruisevelt asked: As much as I respect your view on just about anything, Doctor Franklin, I'm wondering if, perhaps, your ideas of gun control take it a little far. Perhaps tighter gun regulations, making it more difficult to get a license, and requiring every home with guns to have a safe for them, or something along those lines. I simply feel as if- while, yes, guns can and are very dangerous- they still have use in protection. For a simple exaqmple, a young woman living alone could benefit from owning a gun.
Perhaps it would be a better idea not to live alone. The point is, that just because a gun is an option, does not mean it should be your only option. A gun will only keep you safe if you are attacked. A gun will threaten your safety (and the safety of those around you) all the time that it is around.
