A while back, I attended a National Rifle Association fund-raising dinner; an event so white bread it made the Northeast Harbor Fleet yacht club look like a multi-racial melting pot. As the gun rights guy next to me tried to spread rock hard portion-controlled butter onto a roll specifically designed to disintegrate under duress, I asked him if he carried. “No way,” he said. Too much hassle? Too much responsibility? Kids in the house? “If I had a gun I’d shoot someone.” Seriously? Well fair enough. The right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. We should trust each citizen to make-up their own mind whether or not owning or carrying a firearm is right for them. In other words, common sense gun control is about letting individual Americans—not bureaucrats and politicians—exercise their common sense. Anything else enables the kissing cousins of disarmament and fascism. Am I wrong?
