A while ago, a man was charged in a road rage shooting that resulted in a 5 year old boy being killed. Would more gun laws have prevented this? It is easy to say no. However, my thought is how the car was able to be traced to the killer.
Why do we have better control of cars than we do guns? More regulations? The second amendment talks about an armed militia to protect us from our own government. We can have all the guns in the world, but without vehicles, we would not get very far. Not against a mobile army with armored vehicles.
We have lots of regulations for cars. No one is calling for the absolute right to own one. Because if you want one, you can get one. And if you can’t, there is a good reason for that. Those regulations make it easier to track down people that should not have one.
People want conspiracies. A few people do want to get rid of guns completely. However, most people support reasonable regulations. Rules that we are okay for vehicles. We want to take the right to own them for a few that are dangerous. We want every one to be registered. I could not make my own car and sell it. The government should be notified if I transfer it from one private individual to another.
Bad people will still get guns. But if we make it more difficult to own a gun and make sure it is registered, then people like this murderer may be more hesitant. It will not stop the worst people, but the numbers of deaths by guns will go down.
