My father got quite into clay pigeon shooting, got a license and bought a shotgun, he eventually used it to take his own life. Given how shit I feel at times there's just no chance I'm risking it.
Owning a gun means you are statistically:
- More likely to kill yourself (because you're more likely to be male
- More likely to accidentally kill someone else with the gun or in general, ones obvious
- Murder someone because you're more likely to be male
- Be a victim of violent crime with the express intention of stealing your gun.yes people stealing guns target gun owners.
Just not worth it.
It's not worth what ? Statically owning a car makes you more likely to do most of the able as well.
