"Telling gun owners they're paranoid because they have the police is like telling fire extinguisher owners they're paranoid because they have the fire department"

No. That would be accurate if they carried the extinguisher everywhere they went, went out and practiced their firefighting skills every weekend, and had some creepy attachment to it, always in fear of a fear breaking out. I would call said person paranoid.

"Some creepy attachment?" 😂😂

And not every gun carries their gun everywhere. They keep them in the house and car. Just like fire extinguishers.

Most people don't know how to properly use a fire extinguisher.

For any significant fire, the rule is to call the fire department before attempting to fight the fire yourself.

There is a pretty significant difference in the potential harm of misusing a fire extinguisher and misusing a gun.

No one is trying to ban fire extinguishers

For the most part, agreed. However, accidental deaths, family fights that lead to shootings, and suicides are not a major factor with fire extinguishers.

Well kind of but if you are a responsible gun owner than that is ok but if you are a little well on the other side than you
have no right owning it.

Agreed. If guns are banned then the criminals are the only people with guns.
