The scary part of this is, there are a lot of inexperienced people purchasing firearms. Inexperienced or with no experience. Many of us older people grew up with guns and have lived in rural environments. Using a firearm properly is second nature for many of us. This is not so for newbies who are scared and purchasing their first sidearm or long gun. Firearms in the hands of untrained beginners is what I consider dangerous.

Just my personal opinion. Comments?

 Quoting: Nikola Tesla

I understand what your saying about inexperience but most first time gun owners will most likely leave it in a closet or someplace out of the way. When the time comes to use it it's a pretty simple point-and-shoot. Getting used to aiming and proficiently using it is another matter.

In other word the safety of being armed overrides the dangers to themselves most of the time.

I urge you to help a friend learn, because it isn't point and shoot. A lot of guys and ladies are NOT mechanically minded and when they have to disassemble anything they get easily confused with something as ridiculously simple as a Glock. They're afraid of a gun, so they're already nervous. Under a real situation with no training, not understanding which eye is dominant, at night (normal situation) inside a home with thin walls, and not thinking ahead about penetration and loved ones, and that's a shitstorm of hurt.

Teach one person.

My sister is the one I helped.

I think your better off being armed then not but after that your better off having REAL WORLD experience with the firearm you choose for protection.

I agree with Nicola Tesla but we just have a slightly different way of looking at it I think.

Giving you a karma point just for teaching your sister. Good for you. Not enough women learn. A lot of em are scared of them.
