horsefeathering godammit, that is heartbreaking
this is why i told my wife we wouldn't get a gun for home protection. id rather pay for an alarm and take the risk that i have to get shot by some burglar in a very remote scenario than take a chance my daughter shoots herself.
I had that same conversation with my wife; she wanted to look into it and I flat-out said I'm not bringing a gun into my house. Luckily she didn't need much convincing.
My wife's best friend, a gun hugging, anti vaxxer, chem trail beliver, wife of cop, staunch Trump supporter just bought a gun to carry around with her while she shows homes in the NW suburbs(mainly Barrington, Crystal Lake area). I caused an argument by saying that you are twice as likely to shoot yourself by accident than ever need to use the gun from some criminal wanting to rape you.
