And I'd add to CU Tiger that I don't care that he has guns. He isn't the kind of person who is going to use them in a negative manner (felon, disturbed teen/young adult). So I'm fine with him owning as many as he wants.
I am more talking about the perception that home invasions are common in this country or something we need to be really concerned about. There is the occasional story that grabs national headlines, but they're incredibly rare and I think if safety is really my concern there are so many other areas I'd want to address before I got to that.
