I find it funny how some people think if a person owns a registered hand gun they have character issues? I wonder if they think the same of the young police cadet. The fact is a ton of people in this country own hand guns. Yong, old, black, white, purple and orange. Down south EVERYONE owns a gun. You would think people could understand why a lot of pro athletes own guns. They make millions of dollars, and in some cases play in markets where fans are border line obsessive (NE). In the USA it is perfectly legal to own a gun. A ton of pro athletes / people own them. You just dont hear about it.
