I can see where you're coming from. I've only touched a gun for the first time in my life just months ago! I always stayed away because of easy accidents. I can understand keeping one for safety. My partner and his fam know ALL about guns and have owned about every gun possible. It's for protection only and they're always kept out of sight and un loaded.
I think if it's for protection and kept unloaded and out of reach of children, then it's OK. I know unloaded means it will be harder to grab during an emergency, but it seems the safest option. I also think people should have to take a mental test and pass before owning a gun.
As for me, I really don't want a gun. I might and have been considering it. My mom has been robbed at work and held at gun point 2 times so I would love for her to carry a gun, but that's because it's clearly very needed.
I have pepper spray and a knife that I keep with me. We recently had robberies in my area which is totally unusual, but I kept my pepper spray and knife under my pillow when sleeping during the day after work. I felt safe enough. I don't think I need a gun, but if something else happened to put my life in danger, I would probably look more into it.
