I dont own a gun.
I dont plan to buy one, but I agree with the Second Amendment that people have a right to own a gun.
I dont believe that right is absolute under all conditions and scenarios.
The example repeated lately compares the logical limits of the rights in the First Amendment free speech.
But you cannot yell fire in a crowded theater.
You have a Second Amendment right to own a gun, but you should not have the right to use assault weapons on unarmed, innocent people.
There are two types of weapons: guns for hunting and protecting and assault weapons.
Only the military should have weapons to protect the country from enemies.
Shoppers in malls, audiences in theaters and children in schools are not enemies, but there are some who see them as prey.
And if Im someday going to be in a situation where I, with my friends and family, am the prey, I want a fighting chance.
If its all about protecting the sport of owning guns, then lets have some sportsmanship.
After the shooter gets six or eight bullets off, give the rest of us a chance to stop him or her from killing more of us.
To have enough bullets to slaughter everyone isnt hunting; thats war.
And war is for the armed forces only.
