I too will refuse to answer virtually any poll about firearms.
Not even my neighbors know I’m a gun person and I do my best to keep it that way largely for reasons already mentioned. All the loaded tacticool long gun cases don’t make any sense to me considering I need to cover it with a trash bag, blanket and use cardboard anyway.
In the distant past I like many others were looking forward to show familiars my guns but not anymore. Overall it hasn’t proven to be productive in anyway and it’s not the way to get a non-interested person interested. Some folks should not own or operate guns because they are not willing to put anywhere near the effort and/or have the interest to be responsible.
