If your 2nd amendment rights can be removed, then there should be enough evidence for ALL your rights to be removed. Anything less is an INFRINGEMENT, and illegal in the freaking United States of America. PERIOD
There is no argument or debate on this, and the very reason our liberty is at stake.
Why is this so hard to grasp for some people?
Because they see guns as the problem. If they focused on the real problems (mental illness, psychotropic drugs, pure evil, etc.) they inevitably come to the same conclusion over and over -- you can't identify the violent people BEFORE they commit violence, therefore any treatment or incarceration is not preventative. They believe we as mere mortals have the ability to control every aspect of society, one way or another.
Therein lies their solution: control. Whether it's birth control, rent control or gun control, it's all the same: an attempt to place controls on human behavior that historically has been unable to be controlled. The best they have been able to do is Communist Russia and Communist China, where millions died rather than conform to the "big brother" collective society.
You can stop a baby from hurting itself with scissors by taking the scissors away. Or, you can teach the child when it's old enough to respect sharp objects and handle them safely. But, it just takes one kid behaving badly with scissors to make the whole class use safety scissors that can't cut warm butter.
Control is an illusion that is the stepping stone to tyranny. The people who don't grasp that as a real risk are the ones voting for ineffective laws that punish the gun owners who do nothing bad every single day.
