Maybe. I wonder how one safely operates a firearm via a breathing tube.
I realize the 2A purists don't much care about enforcing safety on gun owners, and I am a little nervous about it myself, because it is a murky area. But there are some things that are inherently unsafe.
Iam not sure the answer is to ban him from owning firearms though.
This isn't really directed at you ilbob but I have to address your argument of safety, which is one of my pet peeves. Just because something is inherently unsafe does not mean it should be outlawed. It is inherently unsafe for me to race down the highway at 65 mph on two wheels. There are much safer ways for me to travel. It's inherently unsafe to do the same without wearing a helmet.
Stop and think about this a minute: It is incredibly unsafe for two multiple ton vehicles (of any kind) to go past each other on a 2 lane highway with a combined speed of over a hundred miles an hour. Many many things could be called unsafe.
I say, so what. If nothing else, America should be about freedom. That includes freedom to pursue wealth, happiness, pleasures of various kinds, and yes, activities which others might deem unsafe as well.
Now that I'm older, I've made a decision I'll never jump out of a plane. More power to anyone else who wants to but it won't be me.
So the next guy's safety just might be what I get my thrill from. Please, wrap your kids in every pad available, keep them away from all sharp, loud objects and leave me alone.
