The gun lobby paints a romantic picture. If you have a gun in your home, you can ward off criminals lurking outside late at night. But they fail to mention the deadly statistics outlined here and that the vast majority of would-be robbers do not knock first. Unless you are prepared to sit by your door 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with your gun fully loaded, the reality is a gun kept in your home for self-protection is more likely to be used against you or somebody you love.

I would think the contrary unless the Dad in the home is a serial psycho. If I had a gun, I would describe about it to my family ten fold, especially to the kids and tell them that these are serious tools and not toys to f**k with. If u treat a gun seriously in the home, then u will not get any violent deaths attributed towards it. Problems arise when some careless fathers treat a gun like some plaything by playing around w/ it in front of the kids etc.... U don\'t need a gun only 2 do violence. Anyone can commit a violent crime w/ the household supplies u find at home.

Violence erupts from your mind. Violence can be committed without guns also.
