Now where's that gun?

Re "4 guns found at Salt Lake City airport in just one week" (Tribune, Jan. 18):

Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, is "very careful and skilled with guns," or so says Jonathan Johnson, the company's president.

How can Byrne be responsible when he didn't know his gun was "in a bag he hadn't used for a while"? Are you kidding me? Does he have children?

So, responsible and "careful" gun owners do not even know where their guns are? Perhaps this is why young kids are taking guns to school, or how a young boy got his mother's semi-automatic rifle and killed kids at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Nice job of being careful.
