But to single out firearms from the thousand of typical things in a home in which misuse can cause injury is a bit silly. Having those things hardly implies lack of health, or lack of well being. Therefore, intrusive. I agree.
A bookshelf loaded with 350 lbs of books. A can of Ajax cleanser under the sink. A jug of paint stripper in the garage. An aged batter in the CO sensor, smoke sensor, etc. Let alone the bicycle, the lawn mower, the weed eater, scissors, the butter knife, and so on.
