This may seem like a stupid question, but there’s a whole lot of stupid out there. In absolute terms I mean. Percentage-wise, not so much. The vast majority of American gun owners are entirely responsible with firearms, both storage and use. But there are thousands who aren’t, injury and death resulting. Leading to headlines like this [via usatoday.com]: Chronicle of agony: Gun accidents kill at least 1 kid every other day.
The tragic anecdotes in the story indicate, well, stupidity. “The children decided to go inside, into a room where several adult acquaintances of their parents had been smoking marijuana. A gun was sitting out, and Ka’Darius thought the chrome-and-black .40-caliber pistol was a toy.” You can guess the rest. The antis reckon safe storage laws are the answer to this kind of irresponsibility. The NRA and other put their faith in firearms education. I figure you can’t fix stupid. You?
