Once again we find ourselves mired debating the same old issues, and once again a critically relevant voice is left on the sidelines while the usual suspects bicker in a circle.
One would need to be blind in order to look at the legislative bodies assembled to draft documents to regulate firearms without noticing one disturbing detail: not one of those trying to determine gun rights is a gun.
The same-old, same-old song and dance to the tune of gun violence will inevitably force the answer to an obvious question. Isn’t it beyond time we include a gun in the debate about gun rights?

Just yesterday I walked into an adoption center seeking to acquire a human child and was met with screams of pure terror. Can one even imagine such demeaning treatment for a prospective gun owner? Surely not!
Our legal system as it applies to the rights of guns concerns itself not with the rights of the gun but with the right of others to subjugate guns.
