a lemon is sour! and as Derald Price aptly points out below - a gun is violent! it is made to destroy. so what you're all talking about is not the 'right to own a gun' but the right to enact violence on each other - the right to destroy one another. And people fight black and blue for that right?! If that was written on the licence application, would you be so quick to sign? A "responsible gun owner" is still a person who has decided that they are ok with enacting violence on another human - otherwise why own the gun? Remember this one......? "do to others as you would have them do to you". This exchange works whether we like it or not - If you want gun violence in your society - keep buying guns. If you don't - stop buying guns!!!
