Who is "my team"?

Let's face it, one or even 10000 bad gun owners make all gun owners bad.
Thats like saying, "If one person uses computer to entice a child, that makes all computer owners bad"
Or, "If one person gets in a car, drives off and kills someone, that makes all car owners bad."
Even, "If one person drinks, then beats his/her spouse, that makes anyone who drinks bad."
I could go on & on. Negative actions performed by a person are the fault of that person.The tool(s) used are not to blame.
A final example, "If one person uses ATS to make ignorant claims & statements, all ATS users make ignorant claims & statements.
So...how do we decide who gets these things and who doesn't? We make observations. No black person should have a gun especially if they are poor or militant. No Muslim should have access to a large truck if they have radical views.

It is way too late.
Blame your fore-fathers. You cannot take away the 2nd Amendment ... We The People will not let you. If you want to try, there is a sure fire way to do it.
Call a Constitutional Convention ... and watch the 2nd get stronger!
I will leave this with the OP since they seem to need it.

That's a good point.
My state of residence, Alabama, is larger than the entire United Kingdom in terms of area.
We don't have near the population though. Outside of the 4 metro areas, it is very rural.
I could literally walk due east out my back door and not see another sign of humans until I hit the next road east, approximately a mile and a half away.
