  1. I don’t like guns and I don’t know much about them, but I gather guns have some sort of safety catch on them, Considering size of most women’s handbags and the amount of clutter they cart around with them, adding a gun into that is in crazy to start with, let alone one without a safety catch

    • I think guns in the States often don’t have a safety catch, as it’s a soft thing to have one. I think anybody who wants to own a gun, should see a psychiatrist.

      Guns should also be kept under a double key system, where it needs two to unlock where they are kept. That has been proposed by the NFU, to stop farmers committing suicide.

  2. i agree, people who want to own a gun should see a psychiatrist, and guns should be kept locked away – I like the double lock idea. But I have friends who live in US who carry guns around in their handbags. Sweet grannies in their 60s. Seems odd to me.
