Many studies have demonstrated, over and over again, that homes which do not have a gun in the drawer are safer than those which do, for the mere sight of such a weapon encourages immediate action; the only thing it hinders is thought. Most gun murders (or shooting accidents) at home are not caused by an intruder, but by a member of the family or an acquaintance. But, as far as I am concerned,if guns make gun lovers feel secure and happy they should keep as many as they want --sans assault weapons.
I often walk in Garvin Park and I wonder if there is no one who knows how to trim young trees so they don’t look like bushes? The older trees have lots of dead branches and we just wait until they fall and then mow around them. The steady stream of cars that drive through must be going to homes on the west side of the park and are not there to admire our well-groomed park.
