At what point does 'paranoid` become `justified`? I guess if you live in a Bruce Willis movie or something I suppose maybe you could justify sleeping with a loaded weapon that close to your wife`s head. But in the real world, that`s just an accident waiting to happen. (A restless night, stretch a little too far in your asleep and BAM you have a shotgun in your face.) A lockable nightstand drawer or an underbed gun-safe would be wiser and safer, assuming you`ve taken proper precautions like deadbolts and motion detectors.
I`m not against owning guns, but I repeat: if you feel the need to have a loaded weapon that close when you sleep, you probably are a bit paranoid.
(Btw: I am glad your incident turned out okay and no one got hurt.)

It's nice that you can determine what every other person on the planet need inches from their head.
Wtf? My comment was pretty simple, dude. What kind of RWNJ-filter do you have in your brain to force you to see such twisted versions of everything?
First, where did I determine anything for anyone? I voiced my personal observation about the post and the people it was aimed at and you got butthurt. I fail to see how "...you`re probably a bit paranoid" could be considered determining a need for anyone. Second, where did you get that "every other person on the planet" bit? Holy crap, do you have a degree in Exaggeration? I plainly referred to a very specific sub-set of persons, the ones who drool over this piece of furniture. The ones who loudly and frequently proclaim their love of their guns. The ones who apparently get butthurt at the possibility they might, just might, be a bit paranoid.

If you don't like guns, don`t own one. If you don`t like gay marriage, don`t marry your gender. If you don`t like drugs or porn, don`t take them or watch it.
Those that argue in favor of the right of gun ownership are NOT passing judgement on others and demanding that they conform to someone else`s moral code. Those that argue against the right of gun ownership, even if it`s well meaning, ARE demanding that others conform (lose rights) to others idea`s of morality/right and wrong i.e passing judgement on others.
And PLEASE don`t confuse the right to own a gun as a right to commit crime. Simply owning a legal firearm does not violate the rights of others. The word "Paranoid" had been used a lot in this discussion. Hmmmm I think that the real paranoia is from those that have an irrational fear of responsible gun owners or even worse, a fear of inanimate objects.
"The right to own guns" The "Gay Marriage" of the far left. <
