Ok I see everyones point in: (no it's my right, no regs) but none of our freedoms are absolute to begin with. Just like the 1st amendment you cannot yell fire in a crowded theatre because people could get hurt. The same should apply to the second. I repeal my opinion of mandatory for ownership. Now you can argue a chainsaw or a lawnmower or a car or a pointy stick is more dangerous than a gun, but that argument has no end and leads to no constructive outcome. I agree with the notion o having firearm SAFTEY mandatory in school. That meaning the basic safety of how to properly handle a firearm. I'm not talking about a self defense class. Just the basics on how guns operate and how not to kill little jimmy down the street.
