They say that firearms kept in the home are something like 20 times more likely to be used to shoot a family member, friend or yourself than to be used for self-defense.
I'm thinking that rigging booby traps probably increases those odds.

At least he didn't have the gun in his underwear.
(Not making the obvious 'booby trap' joke........)

They say, do they?

I thought the biggest irony is that people who fear guns, when in trouble, the first call they make will be to seek the assistance of someone with a gun.
It's not about fear of guns. It's about a guy so frightened that he had to rig booby traps. And killed himself in the process.

But yeah - if the situation called for it, the first call would be to law enforcement, not to the knucklehead who lives down the street with a house full of guns.
I'm OK with law enforcement being armed. That's their job.
