    • Louis, I completely agree with you saying that the risk and rewards need to be understood and maybe balanced to make a final decision. This virus has put so many people into difficult situations, and has even taken a large shot at our economy. I think sports is more than just an economic boost and entertainment, it is something that brings lives together. It grows communities, and it is crazy to see how much sports mean to this nation since they are now gone. Let’s just talk about basketball, I think that there needs to be a guarantee that each player doesn’t have any symptoms or the virus. I think it would suck, but maybe games being played without fans, or limited fans would be the next move. This is an article from the NYTIMES that asks major questions, and has many answers that you may like: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/16/sports/coronavirus-sports-come-back.html. I agree with your statement that by starting to slowly proceed into sports may “build up an immunity,” and I think that is a very important point. I just think the NBA needs to slowly finish their season, where it is safe for the players, fans, and all organizations. If this occurs, it may not be exactly the same, but it shows that we may be getting closer again to the “normal” life we need. I loved to read about this topic, and I can’t wait until you make your stance and declare your opinion in what you think are the best moves to make going forward. Stay safe!

    • i don’t think that keeping a firearm in the house safe because if you have kids under the ages of 9 they gonna think that its fake and someone might die so no its not safe to keep a gun in the house.

        Thanks for posting this timely piece.

        As Damaris notes firearm safety is critical for households with young children.

        I wonder what the research says, about how safe are homes with guns inside. I love the image you include in your post.

        Did you consider including some data charts to show how homes are more or less safe with guns?

        Thanks again for sharing this important topic.
