Oh and that's not how freedom works in this country. Everyone is given freedom until they prove they don`t deserve it. "Innocent until proven guilty". You don`t have to earn freedom or earn rights or be granted them by a corrupt and inefficient government. That`s why we have a constitution. Correction: that`s supposed to be why we have a constitution and we`ve gotten away from it so much people (like yourself) don`t even grasp the concepts that the constitution stands for. Carrying a firearm is a constitutionally granted right of american citizens.

Um, i've never heard anybody bitch about having to take a class to get a CCW permit, most people think it`s a pretty good idea. I think cars are much more dangerous than guns, frankly. They certainly kill a lot more people and they kill people "accidentally". Accidental gun deaths aren`t common.
And I`m not even sure what the hell you`re talking about "people not taking responsibility". I think we can all agree on that but what exactly does it even have to do with the conversation? What "people" are you talking about? I went on and on in my rant about how many people I know that own guns and I`ve never known someone who used one irresponsibly. Cars, on the other hand, I know lots of people who have used them irresponsibly and hurt, even killed other people.

Now about this "toy box"... please seek psychiatric help, m-kay? Please seek proper english education. It's a metaphor for having to actually get up off your ass and get something yourself through personal effort instead of just having it handed to you. Namely, the right to wield a murder weapon.
[quote]Altaru: I have a concealed carry permit which allows me to carry a concealed pistol in about 30 states and in order to get it I HAD TO TAKE A CLASS. [/quote] And people bitch about THAT, for Christ`s sake.
With rights and freedoms comes responsibility. If people don`t want to accept the responsibility, they shouldn`t be given the freedoms.
