To drink alcohol you must have a license.

To get married you must have a license.

To drive a car you must have a license.

To buy a gun you must have enough money.

If everyone needed a license to buy a gun you would have a better chance not to be killed because some psychotic person had enough money to buy a gun.

The American Rifle Association thinks it is a constitutional right for anyone to get a gun. This means they believe that any criminal or psychotic has a constitutional right to kill you.

I hope its members would push the leadership to accept the fact that not just anyone should be allowed to carry guns or drink alcohol or get married or drive a car just because they want to.

I believe every person has a constitutional right to do whatever he or she wants while not destroying anyone else’s constitutional rights.

What do you think?
