    Pretty fucked-up ruling. Why should any ignorant shit be allowed to walk around with a gun? Remember what happened to Karen Steinle. Do you think that this is okay?

    its the Constitution- if we the people don't want it we can change the Constitution.

    We can however make it illegal for mentally incompetants to own guns- along with convicted criminals.

    Convicted felons could not possess a firearm for many years. As for mentally competent, who is it that decides this competency?

    since law abiding members of society do not commit murder nor shoot innocent people and since over 99 percent of the population is not shooting people why would you have a problem with them owning possessing and carrying firearms?

    The report, written by Crime Prevention Research Center president John Lott, notes that it is "very rare for permit holders to violate the law" and compares the crimes committed by permit holders to police officers and the general population. The police committed 103 crimes per 100,000 officers, while the general population committed 3,813 per 100,000 people, 37 times as much as the police crime rate.

    And yet, the same metric shows an even lower crime rate for permit holders.

    "Combining the data for Florida and Texas data, we find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers," Lott writes. "Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10 That is just 1/7th of the rate for police officers. But there's no need to focus on Texas and Florida — the data are similar in other states."

    Citizenship is all the authority anyone needs to own a gun. There is no 'controling authority' that dictates who is allowed to own firearms.
