I dislike the notion, as well.

Gun ownership (keeping and bearing) is supposed to be a right.

Driving is a privilege, as we often like to point out.

Operating a vehicle without a license is a crime; should the officer assume drivers don't have licenses, and pull over each and every driver to check for licenses? He can't, because the courts restrict such actions, requiring randomness, only one in so many passing, etc, unless other factors indicate a stop should be conducted.

Is possession of a driver's license an Affirmative Defense against the crime of Operating without a License, or does Operating without a License simply no longer apply to the license holder?

Again, my greater concern is with Bondi's wording.
