    Irrelevant to the issue -- its still an infringement.
    You cannot try to pre-empt crime by violating the rights of the law abiding.

    The person who shot me. There is no one else to blame for their actions but them.

    if you are dead, or one of your family members, they don't come back because you are afraid of "infringement".....

    surely you know people who shouldn't have access to guns? maybe you even are one?

    Criminals do not obey the law in the first place, why one earth would they obey a law that says they have to pass a background check before purchasing firearms when they can get fire arms illegally?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Should you have to purchase insurance to exercise constitutional rights?

    Actually, asking gun owners to provide insurance seems like a good idea. I fly remote-controlled airplanes, and I'm required to carry an AMA license which automatically provides insurance when I fly. The second amendment may give you the right to own a gun, but it does not give you the right to duck the responsibility if you shoot someone accidentally.

    Of course it does... when you don't care about people's rights.

    The 2nd amendment isn't a coverall to accidental shooting. You can easily be charged and/or sued for an accidental shooting.

    Nobody says it does; however, the 2nd Amendment clearly states the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

    This is just another attempt by the left to attack gun ownership.

    Well see, I consider it an attempt to attack model airplane ownership
