There is a reason we don’t let five year olds drive cars. We do let teenagers after they have passed tests and practiced using cars safely earn a license to drive. There isn’t a lobby out there advocating to get rid of the license to drive and just let anybody do it. Are there people who choose to operate cars without a license. Sure. Those people, when caught, are dealt with by law enforcement. That’s the purpose of having laws and law enforcement.
Likewise, we need gun laws. Period. I don’t want to hear that criminals won’t honor those laws or that the laws punish the people who are law-abiding citizens. If you need a license to drive a car, you should have a license to own a gun. I’m not about taking away gun rights, but I am about protecting people.
It’s time for common sense.
