Millions Of Older Americans Own Guns, Leaving Caretakers To Worry About The Risk
Submitted by: David Williamson

Daryl Howard turns 65 in October. He has a Glock .45-caliber handgun stored in his desk at home, but hopes never to use it. “It’s not something that’s taken lightly,” Howard says on a weekday afternoon, in his second-floor Dallas apartment.

"The state can take away an elderly patient’s driver’s license if they present a driving risk, but it doesn’t work that way with guns."

Maybe that's because keeping and bearing arms is an enumerated fundamental right, and driving motor vehicles isn't.

"An April 2019 University of Washington study found that about a third of older adults don’t store their firearms in the safest way — locked up and unloaded."


“3) …the requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock makes it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense and is hence unconstitutional.” - D.C. v. Heller (2008)


“[A] statute which, under the pretense of regulating, amounts to a destruction of the right, or which requires arms to be so borne as to render them wholly useless for the purpose of defense [is] clearly unconstitutional.”


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
