Household Guns as a Risk Factor for Domestic Violence and Suicide

If it isn't obvious from other posts, Quiet Song now discloses that she works a lot with individuals on their personal and familial safety issues and the aftermath of safety failures and other unfortunate occurences. And, probably equally as evident, Quiet Song has high requirements of persons she helps in that she requires them to move towards personal accountability in their decision making process. This is especially true of the women she helps, but she sometimes has to sort through these matters with men as well.

If persons wish to dramatically reduce their own or loved ones risk for death or injury due to domestic violence or suicide, they will remove the firearms from their home. It's that simple. Choose accountability. And do it now. No legislation or gun control needed.

  1. I agree with you- keep guns away from people who are going to kill others and themselves. Such a tragedy. By the way, I just read this article on the Internet- do not know if you like baskeball or not, but it is a story of NBA players pulling guns on each other in the locker room... here is the link, if you would like to read it:

    And, growing up, I used to watch a lot of roller derby. I got a kick out of they way the gals and guys could skate and also their animosity towards each other- rough sport.

    And, for what it is worth, if you want to wear hose, or not, quite all right- nothing wrong with going stockingless when one wants to... :)

    Happy day!
