Gun ownership brings safety responsibilities

April 13, 2014
By Greg Smith , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Never before have citizens hoarded guns and bullets in their homes at current levels. Their reasons are many. Fear that guns and bullets will be abolished, someone might break into their homes for prescription drugs or items to steal, facing violence in public with no means of defense for self or family - the list goes on and the number of concealed carry permit holders has increased to record levels.
