The question was asked,
How realistic is the average gun rights enthusiast about their ability to use their firearm for self-defense/ home protection without being a danger to themselves or bystanders?
I have a friend who is a gun enthusiast, and while he is otherwise intelligent (PhD), I simply don’t trust his judgment or competence with a firearm. He is paranoid, can’t read situations well, and is not particularly coordinated.
If I was present at bank robbery, I would feel *less* safe knowing he was armed.
Is this an unusual case?
