The Wrong Hands for Guns
Any time is a good time to talk about gun safety. But we shouldn't let it become boring and mundane, or think that we know all we need to know about it. That's a risk we take if all we ever remind people of are things like "the 10 Commandments of Gun Safety."
Don't get me wrong. We all need to know the principles and practices to keep, so there's nothing wrong with 10 Commandments. (Or 11 or 12 or 20—why stop at 10?)
But we also need to think about our attitudes and habits when we handle guns. That's why I wrote this column. It's actually something I covered way back in 2005, so maybe it's time to take another shot at it. And it's not something that has ever been in any of the newspapers I now write for. Take a few minutes of your time to think about gun safety, perhaps in a new way. CLICK HERE to read "The Wrong Hands for Guns" in the Jamestown Gazette.
