No one is advocating in breaking laws; but the right to "Bear Arms" is a God given right, as explained by the Founding Fathers. Hence, it is an absolute right to all human beings on Earth.
Such explanation like your's given above is something I would expect from the so-called sensible gun lawmakers.
There are no "absolute rights."
There is a right to life, but we murder millions of humans in the womb every year. We put murderers and rapists to death. We justify self defense using lethal force if threatened in kind.
There is a right to free speech/expression, yet certain types of speech are not protected, e.g. threats of violence.
There is a right to be protected against unreasonable searches and seizures, yet property is seized under asset forfeiture laws every day without a crime being charged.
There is a right to keep and bear arms -- unless you are a felon, drug addict, domestic abuser, alcoholic, non-resident alien, etc.
No rights are "absolute." To state they are is completely ignorant or dishonest.
