Sounds like a very negligible number to me. I would suspect the instances are probably outnumbered by NDs.

the percentage of that happening is probably around the same percentage as joe biden not lying in front of a camera

I am not sure about firearms being used against their owners i am sure it happens. But their are cases that the firearm was used to accidentally kill family members.

You have lost me. They are talking about owners firearms being used against the owner i am pointing other negative things that can happen. So if you decide to carry a firearm there are things to consider. It could be taken of you and used against you other negative possibilities. PS I am not saying people should not carry firearms that's their decision there are plenty carrying them here.

I go with towboater on this one. That is why I do not like open carry.

I keep mine concealed. Nobody will know I have a gun until I have to use it.
