I think what you guys have decided, if I understand you correctly, is you've taken a fairly universally accepted right like "life," the idea that we all have a right to "life," and you've moved from there to "self-defense." If we have a right to "life" we must have a right to defend that life. So far so good. But here's where you lose me and a lot of other people too, If you have a right to "self-defense," you keep saying, then you have a right to own guns in order to best exercise that self-defense. I say that doesn't follow.What do you think? Does it make sense?
How about this? We have a right to life, right? Too many guns in the hands of irresponsible or criminal people are interfering with that right, the right to life. We need proper (strict) gun control laws in order to ensure the ability of people to enjoy their right to "life."
Why would your leap of faith that easy individual gun ownership is the best way to exercise our right to life be any more valid than my idea that the best way is to severely restrict and control guns?
