First We are talking about rights, not a government privilege. Our rights are beyond government and we are lawfully allowed to exercise them so long as we don't interfere with the rights of others. The problem that started gun control is that someone decided it was OK for the government to license automatic weapons to make the streets safer. What should have happened was the cost of committing a crime with any weapon demanded a swift and lethal end to the perpetrators life.
That law began a process of restrictions that were deemed "reasonable" to protect the very people who could protect themselves if there was no restriction. Not only is it impossible for any government to protect the individual it is unnecessary because we have the right to protect ourselves and others. The only reasonable and effective gun law is to prosecute those who break the law. You cannot prevent crime, it has to be prosecuted.
