I would never have a gun in my home. The stats for children and adults accidentally shooting themselves are just too high to take that chance. It is an unneccessary risk, IMO.

I am not opposed to owning a gun. Fiance doesn’t have any in the house but it is something that we are looking into. I think its fine as long as it is properly locked up and only people who are experienced handle the gun.

I absolutely agree with crayfish, at least for myself and my husband. Guns are not for us or our family.

However, we live in a safe area and do not take part in recreational shooting or hunting like some people do. I have family in the country, and they have guns in their homes but keep them locked up at all times. My uncle keeps the key to their gun cabinet in a location that is only known to his wife and his children are not allowed to even be near it. I am not opposed to people being able to own guns with proper licensing, but I hope and pray that you will be smart about it if you choose to have children.

we have a handful of guns in our house. Fiance got his first gun a week before we started dating. It’s a hobby for him now. Our first date was at the shooting range. I go with him on occasion so that I am comfortable with the guns in case I ever need to use them when he is out of town (for self-protection). I’m sure when we have kids, they will be locked up very well. Fiance wants me to get my concealed carry. Not sure if I’ll ever do it but who knows

I do have many rifles, shotguns and handguns. I grew up with guns and I took my hunter saftey when I was 10. Fiance grewup with no guns, and was always a little weary until he was shown proper protocol.

I like when people say they dont have them because they arent safe, and some kid may shoot themselves. Responsible owners dont leave guns, loaded or not, not locked up.Incase of a natural disaster or totally shutdown of policing you best believe the majority of people who have guns wont be the good people.

We have a couple. I grew up with guns in the house, my dad had quite a few. So for me it made me respect them (guns) and I have no problem with them being in the house when we have kids as long as they are always kept in the locked safe. We actually got a .22 rifle as a wedding gift from my hubby’s friend (an ex marine).

We have many of them and I have my eye on a sweet 9mil right now.

@crayfish, while guns are not for everyone, I still recommend a gun safety course for all kids. I took mine around 8, and my parents didn’t have any. The stats change completely when there is proper gun safety learned and kids with gun safety courses are far less likely to play with or mis handle a weapon. Kids will eventually run into weapons, they are at friends houses and families houses.

No. I respect people’s right to have them, but I would never allow one in my home. I will however make sure my daughter knows everything there is to know about gun safety when she’s old enough.

This whole conversation just seems so surreal to me. I live in Canada and guns just aren’t common. The only people I know with guns are farmers or are in the military and only use them when there’s a bear or something.
