Another footnote: so is a hunk of enriched uranium. Or, more accurately, two finely machined hunks of enriched uranium that fit together perfectly to form a critical mass. Just inanimate metal. It's people that are the problem, right, not the inanimate metal? When do I get my enriched uranium? I'd like a side order of plutonium-239, too, please. It's just metal. As a law-abiding citizen, I just want to look at it and fondle it. What could possibly go wrong?
If left alone a loaded gun will do nothing for years until a spring maybe fails and it might go off. I'm guessing that radioactive materials, not unlike the bucket of uranium at the Grand Canyon pose a threat without any human intervention.

Just a thought.
