I support responsible gun ownership. I believe the Second Amendment supports responsible gun ownership. Anybody that does not have a criminal record, a history of mental illness, and is an adult over 21 should be able to purchase a gun. But with that freedom to purchase a gun comes the responsibility to learn safe handling and storage of guns. The people I know that own guns (who are also member of the NRA), are emphatic that gun ownership implies being a responsible gun owner. Not that my response will be “good enough” to satisfy certain people, but then again, it was demanded of me that I discuss the topic or GTFO the thread.
