Notwithstanding the cliché ("guns don't kill people, people kill people") guns do kill people. Of course so do cars, yet, we license drivers, require drivers to have insurance, and take away cars and licenses when from those who abuse the driving privilege. The issue of gun control ignites the emotions of many on this message board who believe gun control in any form is unconstitutional. The issue in this thread is not on the right to own a firearm, rahter, what are the moral, ethical and social consequences of such a policy (not its legality)? Of course we cannot dismiss the Constitutional right to own a firearem simply based on the misuse of such weapons by the few and not the many. We can however look at the wording in the Second Amendment and at the contemporary definition of the word "Infringed": "to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress: to infringe a copyright; to infringe a rule"; from dictionary.com. First though, a poll.
