Owning any type of gun not currently outlawed is most certainly my guaranteed right. Someone better have some damn sound reasoning before they try to infringe on that right.
Yeah, I would like to hear you tell someone of color or better yet a militant lesbian that they have to justify their need for their rights before they can enjoy those rights...good luck with that!
So far as the second and fifth amendments as well as patient confidentiality goes, I agree with you. However, we currently have backgrounds checks so I don't see what your point is. I am certainly not advocating any stricter gun laws as I think the whole thing is BS and won't prevent a single criminal from getting a gun should they want one. This whole maelstrom of **** is a knee-jerk reaction to a handful of idiots...not exactly a wise thing to prompt consideration of amending the constitution or at least reinterpreting.
Walrus, you always have a lot of statistics and what not so help me find some information: What percentage of gun violence in the US takes place with legal weapons? My guess is that it is less than 25% which leads me to the conclusion that we have an enforcement problem and not a regulation problem. This would also indicate that further regulation will have very little affect on violence but will cost jobs, will deprive law abiding citizens opportunities to buy products they want, and possibly will deny someone the opportunity to defend themselves.
