Age, Driving, and Guns

Interesting question. After 80, some states impose annual testing on seniors to see if they are safe to have behind the wheel of a car.

If someone isn’t safe as a driver, are they safe as a gun owner?

I expect that we will see a rise in dimentia related shootings, with the elderly killing relatives mistaking them for intruders. That’s already happened, but as the Boomer generation ages, we’ll see more of it.
