Very well put. I dated a nurse years ago that wasn't anti-gun, knew me well from the ER, and was a casual friend before we started dating. At the time I owned a Monte Carlo with bucket seats. After I picked her up I warned her that if I had to brake suddenly a handgun in a range bag might come sliding out from under her seat. I didn't think anything more about it at the time, but she later admitted wondering what she had gotten into. About a half hour later we were talking about my short career as a LEO, and she later told me that was when she finally relaxed about the gun. A little thought and communication on my part could have made it a better date for her.
Accidents don't just happen. They must be carelessly planned.
