Though I don’t agree, we all have the individual right to keep and bear firearms. The Supreme Court did say that reasonable limitations of that right are constitutional.
Arizona, and a number of states, let anyone who has reached 21 buy a gun if they check out on an instant background inquiry.
Is it asking too much that governments license people with guns? That they make you take a test to get the license? Most states make you take a few hours of classes to get a drivers license – too much to ask to get a gun? Run-ins with the police disqualify you from getting a gun?
The guy that everyone now agrees is crazy after shooting the people in Tucson bought the gun he used on November 30. Walked in and walked out. He’d had a number of incidents involving community college police. Might he have popped off during a couple of hours of class like he did in college? Don’t know the answer. I sure wish we’d have given him the chance screw up small, with consequences, before he had the chance to screw up big.
If I am wrong, tell me how. None of “that liberals are all alike.” Rational reasons we shouldn’t have reasonable restrictions that might have saved a few lives on Saturday, and most every week during the year.
