I'm sure there are a lot of responsible gun owners. I believe you are one of them, based on what I have read from you so far. I'm sure your children will not be able to get at your weapons easily.
But doesn't your lack of faith in humanity extend to the mass of people who own guns and just do not fit the profile that would qualify them for owning a gun in a responsible manner?
Having the right to do something does not automatically qualify it as a good idea to excercise said right, that's all I'm saying. Think twice before making that purchase, which could very well change your life and those you love in a matter of seconds. Or end them if things really go bad.
People are easy to lead, in my experience.. when you give them an illusion of Democracy, they'll lap up all the lies in order to maintain the illusion. No amount of guns will change that. just my 2 cents offcourse..

That's like banning cars because people run people down.
A gun is just a machine like a car.
He could have easily opened the door and stabbed the kid to death.
Should we ban knives?
How will we cut up our food?
However some kind of psych testing for both drivers and gun owners would weed out the wacko's.

The case for increased legislation of firearms is as much about reducing the availability of illicit (i.e stolen or otherwise misappropriated) firearms to criminals as it is to prevent the sale of them to persons that would fail any given intelligence or psychiatric test.
