Created: September 17, 1787 written over 230 years ago when guns were needed for protection and hunting for food. The gun was necessary.
Owning a gun today in 2017 is not a right it is a need for the person who thinks only of themselves and not as a citizen of the USA. Caring for the nation does not matter anymore.
I do believe people have the right to have a gun when they enjoy hunting and live off the grid in remote places they are needed but that does not mean that having a gun is a right.
People in built up areas do not need a gun to find food in a shopping mall. I remember the story of the Chinese student who was lost and knocked on a door for directions and was shot how sad was that.
Having guns brings out the hate and drives the angry to enter schools, malls, church, movie theatres, and clubs killing innocent people.
You have to have a license to drive a car, fly a plane, start a business; in fact we have licenses for many professional jobs. We should have a license to own a gun and have it renewed just like a car license. Common sense should be a part of the Constitution for those who insist they have a right to have a gun having a gun is a privilege and should be vetted and licensed in 2017.
We know professionals, the military, police etc. need guns. Teens and the public do not and being paranoid is the fear of people who have guns and teens who are unsupervised finding the cash of family guns in their house and for a mad moment in anger go out and kill just because they can.
