If someone wants to owe a gun, fine. If that can be done while protecting the equal interest of an innocent not to die because of that gun, fine. The solution is to look squarely at the situation, not in the darkness of fear but in the reality of day. There a hundreds of efforts that can be undertaken which protect the Second Amendment but still ensure that 6- and 7-year-old children will live to see another day.
As for me, I choose to live bravely without a gun. My government isn’t perfect, but it’s still among the best, even when it does things with which I disagree. The Constitution isn’t perfect, but I don’t want to trash it. I do want to find ways to make it fit within the reality of a country that strongly values fear and poorly requires maturity.
