Why should we (us older or more experienced folks) think we are any more or less safe when we started out in firearms those starting today.
Sounds strange to me. I suspect, this new group is probably no less safe or likely to create a risk than when you - all started.
I think too many gun owners want to appear reasonable to non-owners. It's reasonable to want everyone to be safe. Therefore, its reasonable to require it. We have all watched as government and society has chipped away at personal responsibility and has attempted to protect the individual from themselves in every way shape or form.
I can understand wanting a family member protected from harm. I cannot understand wanting the government to force that protection.
