"Here's what I learned, the one time in my life that I fired a gun. It scared the bejesus out of me. I don't want that kind of power in my hand. I don't trust myself with it."

...You have that power in your hands every time you drive your car. But you're accustomed to it and competent, so it doesn't bother you. You're not (hopefully) careless, and you don't lose your head and run down pedestrians.
