It is my understanding that our friends in the NRA are against any regulations regarding guns, citing their Second Amendment rights. Surely the rest of have some rights as well. I would like children to be safe at school, moviegoers to be free to see a movie without the threat of being mowed down by assault weapons, our politicians to hold town meetings without finding themselves in gun sights. Who can seriously claim that the "well regulated militia" outlined in the Second Amendment means that anyone with money has the right to purchase any weapon they want? Common sense regulations regarding background checks, eliminating military weapons of mass destruction from the public domain, and requiring training and competency if one does own a gun is simply allowing the rest of us to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The NRA's stubborn stance, which I believe is trampling on our right to live and breathe in an environment that is free from imminent threat of annihilation, does not serve any of us. If we can require people to prove competency to drive a car we can surely require the same of gun owners. How can anyone seriously argue that is an infringement of the Second Amendment?
