The friends I’m thinking of were truthful when I asked, and my kids still play there because I was wise enough to ask about how they were stored (in a locked safe).Well that sounds like good parenting, right? What makes him a hypocrite then? Why this professed belief:
No home with children should have a gun, even if it's locked upSo even though he believes NO home w/ children and firearms can be safe, he allows his children to play in one. Does he ask every time they go over to the 'friends' if all the firearms are locked up? Does he personally inspect the home? I doubt it. So he's going on blind trust of certain individuals he's decided are 'safe' but anyone else is 'sick'. And the final kicker to just nail down his need to disassociate himself no matter the mental maneuvering involved ?
And you *always* downplay the dangers of guns in the home, scoffing at careful parents who ask critical questions, including about guns, trusting that gun owners are always going to be responsible with their weapons, yet you are so paranoid that the people you don’t know well could be sex abusers or heroin addicts or whatever.Pot meet kettle.
