In this article, the author opines that because of being a moderate, his views are not taken seriously. He mentions that in any argument, a balanced view is essential and a compromised solution acceptable to both the parties needs to be arrived at. He further states that there is some merit in both the arguments in the public debate in support and against gun control. He also reflects on the nuclear war survival drills during his school days and thinks that it helped him feel secure.
