But we understand that, because he is a baby after all. As he matures, he then begins to take on responsibility, and tantrums are then returned with punishment. It's the same with our rights. We have the first amendment, but we are not allowed to shout "fire" in a crowded theater. And we have the second amendment, but are not allowed to threaten our neighbors or family with violence. Those who scream bloody murder that limiting gun ownership in this way are just like the babies I mentioned earlier. They want all the rights without any of the responsibilities that go with those rights. In the real world, and in America, it just does not work that way.
