We should treat gun ownership the way we treat the use of automobiles on public highways. It should be a privilege that must be earned by demonstration that one has the knowledge and skill to use responsibly and safely, and subject to being revoked for misuse.
Sounds good to me:
A person can operate a car at age 16.
There are no federal licensing or registration for cars.
A person can purchase a car with no background checks for vehicular homicide conviction or drunk driving.
A person can drive high power cars like Porsches.
A person can drive a “Saturday Night Special” Car like a Yugo.
A person can drive their car across any state line and operate that car in that state no questions asked.
There is no waiting period to purchase a car.
There is no limit on the amount of cars a person can own.
A person can drive their car to any public park, including federal ones.
There are no laws restricting cars 1,000 feet from a school or bar.
A person can sell their car to any other driver at any time with no background check on the purchaser.
A person can have their driver’s license revoked yet drive their Jeep on their ranch as much as they want.
Now if we can only force people to get a license before they could practice their First Amendment Privilege as spelled out in the first 10 Amendments of the Constitution also known as the Bill of Privileges. Same for the 4th Amendment Privilege, 5th Amendment Privilege the 14th Amendment Privilege, etc.
