It's a mixed bag, really. I would love to own a Bushmaster. Pretty damn cool piece of tech. But... if it means that certain elements in our society doesn't have access to them either... then I am willing to give up that right. Maybe they could have Bushmasters only at ranges so you could rent one but not own one. Then only a few individuals would have to be "watched" and given psych exams, etc. The range "wardens".

"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
