I own a black gun with a brown handle. It holds five bullets and stays loaded by my bed. I've always advocated gun control; the odd thing is I still do. It wasn't ignorance of crime statistics nor thinking I was immune to violence that previously kept me from owning a gun. I assumed because I didn't believe in violence, because I wasn't violent, I wouldn't be affected by violence. I believed my belief in the best of human nature could make it real. I should transport the gun from my residence to my vehicle, but I don't.
我有一支黑色手枪，手柄是棕色的。手枪就搁在我的床头，里面装着五颗子弹，并且总是上了膛的。 我一贯主张控制枪支，奇怪的是我现在依然主张控制枪支。以前我没有枪，并不是因为我对有关犯罪的统计资料不了解，也不是因为我自认为可以不受暴力的袭击。 以前我认为自己不相信暴力，我自己也没暴力倾向，所以我不会受到暴力的侵袭。我还认为我对人性本善的信念会使这一假想成为现实。 我应该把枪从住所带到车上，但是我没有这样做。
