"We have too many damned guns in the United States, and far too many of them are carried by morons like Michael Dunn, the aforementioned-in-the-ling 47 year-old Floridian software developer.
 
Can somebody explain to me why you have to take about 20 hours of classroom instruction and 20 hours of practical instruction, by certified teachers, then pass both an extensive written exam and a practical (road) test to be allowed to drive a car or a motorcycle, but you can legally buy a gun without so much as a single second of instruction? On what planet does that actually make sense?"

i can explain it but you already know. owning a gun is a right, driving a car is a privilege. that doesnt mean i dont agree that there should be some sort of test/instruction/safety class that happens before one can purchase a gun. but that will never happen in this country.
