The effect of gun fire on our PETS is outstanding. The effect of gunfire on our FAMILY is even more. I have watched our animals as the "bang" of guns makes them so scared they just dont have control. About a year ago the death of one of my horses was unexplainable, I do not blame a bullet, although her death was no doubt neurological. My kids are twelve and seven. I will NOT allow my children to be out'n'about when there are shooters NEXT DOOR. No one could assure me one hundred percent no bullet could not stray. Its just not the part of good ole country living that anyone would admire. The phrase "TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT" applies.
