+1 with your 1st point. i hear you loud and clear there. People should be able to own guns,bows arrows, etc. They should be locked/secure, and if not, major penalty.
Your 2nd point is the more interesting one for me. The need to have a pistol? If its truly for fun. I see that. But if its for protection, than there is something fundamentally different about the security people feel.
I'm sure the issue has been visited many times with many lines of evidence.
Sad all around.
