A gun for me triggers PTSD because of my brother. I can't even stand to be around them. When my dad was young, they hunted deer to survive. He was very poor. I understand that. Mom and Dad didn't have a lot of money either. So they hunted deer and had rifles. I had no problem with the guns being around. Now, my husband keeps his, which he never uses, hidden away so I don't have to see them. If he dies before me, I will take them to the police station to get rid of them. I cannot tolerate them. They were designed to kill living things. I'd rather die than shoot something or someone. I would never get over it. It would violate my very soul.
