My father grew up in rural Pittsburgh, PA where they get off for all the starts of hunting season and we always grew up around guns. Rifles to be exact never handguns. We learned at an early age the proper way to handle and care for a gun including cleaning and storing. My father has never kept the guns and the bullets in the same place and they are under separate locks. We never knew where the keys were to these locks. We never tried to "play" with the guns because of the way we were taught to respect them. Hell he started taking us shooting when we were 7 and 8. It was a big part of his life, he was a nationally ranked sharpshooter during high school and college (thats how redneck his school was...a gun team LOL)

DH and I currently do not own any guns, because we really are not into hunting and I do not forsee the need for a firearm in my neighborhood to protect against an intruder. But I think it is completely fine to have one.
