An interresting link can be found at http://www.armedamerica.org/
It is a collection of photos and short stories about gun owners and their guns.
It's strange. One thinks of photos of armed men and women as a product of the past. Civil War soldiers and square jawed lawmen. Or maybe smirking gangsters or on the lamb bank robbers. But there are just ordinary people who happen to own guns.
I myself remain on the fence about guns. On the one hand I was raised on really cool gun fights. I like the technology and the artistry of the gun. I just wish that they were somehow smarter than the people that wield them. That they could somehow know when they were being handled by a six year old, or that the bearer was drunk or depressed. I'm a big believer in science. Maybe someday guns will be that smart.
I still don't own one. I've been tempted. But the responsibility of owning an object that can kill another person just by pointing it at them, either intentionally or unintentionally, is just too much for me. There's a ghost that haunt me whenever I look at a table of handguns. And in the end I say "Not today".
