Which has priority: unlimited gun rights, or the right to live and prosper?

FALLBROOK – For the past 20 years, the U.S. has seen unlimited gun ownership proliferate to a point of no return. Congress seems too timid to stand up to the National Rifle Association and their Second Amendment speak, and no one who stands on their Second Amendment rights without limitations, restrictions or much personal responsibility in most states wants to consider that their gun rights stop when guns injure others. Even the Heller case advocates responsible gun use. Please don’t tell me that it isn’t your fault that someone with a mental problem murders 17 teenagers, again. President Donald Trump approved of selling firearms to mentally impaired folks.

So what about our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness unimpaired by firearms? It seems to me that our rights to survive and live has become secondary to your right to own as many firearms as you want, and that gun lovers see anyone’s death from accidental or murderous firearm use as simply being collateral damage to their gun rights. I am one of those who have had enough of putting Second Amendment rights over our right to live and prosper.
