Happy 4th of July
Society needs to get back to a point where a firearm is looked at no differently than any other tool. A 12 year old walking down the street with a junior .22 Rifle slung over his shoulder, nor an adult openly carrying a pistol for defense should not be any reason for alarm. Responsible kids should be allowed go hunting for small varmints and shoot cans for fun and practice (in the country, not within city limits). Just as every person has the inalienable right to bear arms. The bill of rights doesn't grant us rights. We already have them. The Bill of Rights are restrictions placed on the government. There should be no cause for concern unless a tool is being used for nefarious purposes. It's just a piece of metal, get over it. A piece of metal and nothing more. Actions can be terrible or just, but objects are neutral, lifeless and without malice. Bulls have horns, tigers have teeth and we have firearms.
