A 140 character limit makes it impossible to have an intellectual debate.
Your first question was, "Why do people keep guns in their wardrobes?"┬á Your second was, "Why do you keep guns in your house?"
As opposed to keeping them where?┬á I prefer to keep my property where I can control it.
I think where you're going with this is, "Why have a gun at all?"
Well, that's more metaphysical. However, as I've discussed previously, guns are the single most effective way of defending oneself.┬á Here's one of my links, with sources:
http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/item/rape the section on the effectiveness of firearms starts about a quarter of the way down the page.
Now, you may disagree with this, though I have trouble grasping why anyone would disagree with the concept of being able to effectively defend oneself against predators without having to hope an outside agency will be around when needed.
What you need to understand is that not only doesn't it matter if you disagree, but that you're unqualified to disagree.┬á I will lay long odds and large amounts of money that there's no aspect of firearms or violence where I'm not better educated than you.
Without google, explain the following terms:┬á DEWAT, pre-May sample, FOPA, NDA 1916, open bolt, AOW, C&R, Tueller Drill, modified Weaver, constructive possession, 922(r).┬á If you don't know what these mean, you can't persuade me you understand the subject at even a lay level.
You have a prejudice, based on ignorance, and you have every right to do so. What you don't have is a right to impose your prejudices on others, especially when you aren't knowledgeable of the subject.
Imagine if someone walked into a genetics lab and insisted all the haplogroup studies were irrelevant, that God had dictated racial and mtDNA difference.┬á Or someone walked into a virology lab and said that vaccinations were a bad thing.┬á
That's where you are in this debate. ┬áI'm sure you mean very well, but you're so uninformed about the subject, you're not even wrong.
Moving on, guns can have historical significance, be mechanically ingenious, beautiful to look at, or downright fun.┬á Some people collect beer, wine or liquor, some collect cars, and some collect guns. There's no requirement that you or I appreciate it, care about it, or approve of it.┬á There are people who protest all of those, and porn, and various or all religions, and on, endlessly.┬á We call that "Diversity."
So I hope this post offers some enlightenment, though I'm sure it offers no satisfaction.┬á You will not be able to offer any argument against gun ownership that's informed enough for me to need to refute, to care about doing so in the long term, or even to acknowledge as relevant.┬á And the Supreme Court supports my position much more than yours.
Now, if you have questions about the subject and would like to learn, I'll do my best to answer them.┬á I hope and expect, based on experience, you'll find that firearms are far less scary with knowledge.
Otherwise, I wish you good day, a safe life, and peace.
