But like free speech, the right to bear arms is not absolute. Reasonable regulations can thrive and have thrived before to make sure this freedom is wielded for society's benefit.
Despite the protests of the NRA and some of the anti gun control folks in this thread, this remains true: being pro gun control is, for most people, not an anti-gun position.
I personally own many guns. I agree that it is NOT a right, rather a privilege, just like driving a car. Not just anyone can get a gun. Felons or those with a mental disorder come to mind. Also, you can't own one under the age of 21. That seems pretty reasonable to me. What more controls do we need to put in? Serious question.
We have a million reasons for failure, but not one excuse...
