Re: [humanism-174] Check out The Riddle of the Gun : Sam Harris

I would (on the surface) agree with that.

I grew up in a small farming community, and my dad taught us how to shoot and handle and clean and maintain firearms.  My brother operates a gun store and is a CCW instructor. 

And, most of the farmers coming into his shop to buy ammunition or cleaning kits (which they've never owned before, eek!!) are so ignorant when it comes to safety and maintenance of a firearm it is worrisome.  I've even seen him turn down sales for certain reasons regarding ignorance, safety, and suspicion of a problem.

It's pretty ridiculous.

He makes many good points but I don't agree with all of them. 

In my experience 90% of people who own guns have no business owning them.   I find it much easier to teach safe gun handling skills to someone with zero experience than to try to undo years of bad habits.
