Sir: Of course it is not safe to allow people to keep guns at home. As a GP I once refused to leave a surgery for an inappropriate emergency visit. When I did visit an hour later I found the man polishing one of his (legally owned) guns, which just happened to point in my direction. I felt thoroughly intimidated, as I am sure was intended.

I reported this to the police who told me that they had no power to review his firearms licence in these circumstances.
