Salty D. has decided to look into purchasing a gun. When I first heard this, I said, "Now why would you bring a gun into the home of a person with occasional suicidal tendencies?" It scared me.
Therefore part of our deal is that we would have a gun safe to which I do not have the key.
Unfortunately this also means that if D. is not home and we have a zombie home invasion, I would not be able to get to the gun. But, that's OK because I don't know if gunshots thwart zombies. I could probably use an axe to sever their heads instead.
Now he is looking into applying for a permit, because he's not aspiring to be an outlaw biker. These are some of the questions the application asks:
Of course that's almost illegible.
"Are you an individual who is an habitual drunkard...?"
"Is your character and reputation such that you would be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety?"
Now, what kind of idiot would answer "yes" to those questions? If they were that self-aware, they would probably just illegally carry.
This also scares me. Then again, I'm really naive.
I've never fired a gun before. I guess I'll add that to my life list.
