• It is "gun usage" and not "guns usage". What do you mean by usage? Owning. Firing. Carrying. The biggest disadvantage to owning a gun, as with a great many other things, is ignorance. It is deadly. What you don't know can hurt you. Especially when it comes to safety. I have owned a gun since I was nine and was taught safety safety safety. I was then a soldier, more safety. I still have guns, though they are antiques. They're locked and stored safely away.You will have to redefine the question for more help. The best thing to know for now is to stay away from them.
  • Asside from safety issues, which any gun owner should be intimately familiar with, the only thing I can think of here is that someone else may get ahold of your gun and injure themselves, or injure someone else, or turn it against you. Most gun owners take precautions against these eventualities.
  • Ask Lil' Wayne. He found a gun on mom's bed when he was alone age 12 and accidentally shot himself in the chest and had seconds to live when he was rescued.
  • Keeping a firearm for personal protection when you don't know how to use it, or lack the determination to use it can be more dangerous than being unarmed. Someone could take it away and use it on you. Also firearms ownership places a responsibility on you to keep it and ammunition out of the hands of irresponsible people. +5
  • As long as you know how to safely use it and store it, there are no disadvantages.
