I might be a wee bit off, but that is not one question but three. OK, let’s play anyway.
1) How paranoid do you want to be?
Paranoid is what the Unprepared call the Ready.
2) How many guns does it take to make you feel safe?
You still don’t get it. It is not a question of “feelings” and you do not get to dictate what can I own and use for my defense. Incidentally, how many guitars do you own? You only need one to play music.
3) And how simultaneously keep them loaded and close at hand, but still out of the reach of your inquisitive children or grandchildren?
Well Stephen, I am surprised that you being involved with “Gun Safety Groups” do not know the answer to that question. But there is hope for you; you see, the NRA has a bunch of nifty classes you can attend and tackle that and any other questions you may have regarding Firearms Safety. There are NRA instructors in your area and in fact, there is a Home Firearm Safety Course to be held in South Berwick, on 3/15/2015 with Lois Kupersmith (email@example.com). If that is too soon, there will be another in Windham, on 4/12/2015 with Anthony Sweet (firstname.lastname@example.org.) You will find all the answers you need with them.
I am so glad I was able to help. You do not need to thank me.

I will qualify my statement by first stating that I am a fan of his work, and I have shaken his hand, and found him to be very funny and pleasant in mixed company.
But why should I allow a mentally ill junkie question MY judgement!
Went to the same College as him (hell was born at the same hospital), and yet I’ve never had to be checked into rehab, or had ridiculous phobias.
I don’t judge him for his issues, I have my own, but he’s not the person to judge others on what is “Sane”.

I would counter with “How paranoid do YOU want to be? How many gun laws does it take to make YOU feel safe?” Because it only takes a couple of guns for me to feel safe, but I know that the number of laws it takes to make them feel safe is “just one more.”
I don’t buy guns to feel safe. I buy guns because they’re awesome. Same reason I do anything.
Now, here’s a question: Why the guitar analogy? It’s Stephen F@#$ing King! Why not, “How many computers do you own, and why do you think you need to own one at all? You can write a novel on a typewriter.”
He fancies himself as a guitar player in a band. And any guitar player with money will buy more guitars than he “needs.”
Yeah, nice fisking there Miguel!!! 🙂
And how do you simultaneously keep them loaded and close at hand, but still out of the reach of your inquisitive children or grandchildren?
It’s called a holster.
Plus, my inquisitive oldest child has a gun of her own. My equally inquisitive youngest will get her own in a few (too short) years.
Of course, since both girls _are_ inquisitive, my (ex)wife and I made sure to educate them on the proper handling, safety, and storage of firearms… And cleaning chemicals… And power tools… And kitchen knives… And, well, y’know Stuff™.
Stephen King lost me as a fan WAY before he went off the (very public) deep end of the liberal/progressive pool with the pathetically inept, facile and perfunctory conclusion to THE DARK TOWER series in 2004. (I haven’t purchased a single book of his since.) Twenty-two years of waiting to read about the end of Roland’s quest and I get King, in his own novel, as the lynchpin of the alternate universe.
Metafiction my ass.
BTW, keep your hands off our guns, Steve. Just go back to rehab and mind your own fucking business. Stop preaching about what you are obviously so woefully ignorant about.
You lasted a long tome. I cut him off after Dolores Clairbone. I still swear that his wife wrote that book (and others) not him.
“Incidentally, how many guitars do you own? You only need one to play music.”
I have 3 guitars. I have more handguns than that. I’m with Goerge about The Dark Tower series. All those years and at the end it was WTF?? I haven’t bought any of his books since.
