The main thing to know is that I don't object to gun ownership per se. I object in general to the absurd notion that the more guns we put in the hands of law abiding citizens, the safer we'll all be, and in particular to the questionable notion that bringing a loaded gun into a house with children increases that child's safety. Suicides are relevant here too because when minors commit suicides, their parents are in some sense responsible. If it's not really about safety, if the purported benefit/utility of guns is something other than safety, and like cars or downhill skiing it's the recreational or economic value for gun hobbyists or hunters, then fine. As I said earlier, let's just total up the public health cost of gun violence and distribute it equally among gun owners, and I won't need to bring up the subject again.
