Interesting; only last Friday, I had a conversation about guns with a 5 year old. He is convinced that guns are a good thing. They MUST be, because, after all, 'God gave us the things, the stuff to make them with, so why would he do that if guns are bad?' We talked or some while about this, I careful not to dismiss his belief and he, firm that they can't be bad. he asked me, well what if a burglar came into your house to steal your things; wouldn't you want to shoot him so he didn't? So i said, honestly, that no, I wouldn't want to shoot a burglar, nothing I own would be worth shooting someone for, even if I was very sad to lose my things. And I asked, what if we shot the wrong person, what if we shot someone accidentally??. He thought about it for a while, then said, 'what if my (little) brother picked it up and accidentally shot ME??'.............so, we then talked about how it's not the gun itself which is bad........but maybe the people who use them and maybe even the reasons they use them? And we came to the conclusion that maybe guns are something we could do without.
