From the same article:

But there are plenty of proponents of gun ownership to challenge and argue against such regulations.

The Second Amendment still gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Gun ownership and possession are legal in this country.

People use them for hunting, for target shooting, for collections, for protection.

Sadly, some people use them in robberies and murders. But such people are breaking our laws when they do so. Such are not the actions of responsible gun owners. And no law can totally prevent such actions.

I have to say: it's actually nice to see some balance (for a change) in an article about gun ownership.

The last line struck me though. Why should there be anything to prevent people from buying guns with an Amendment which expressly give this right?

The fact that this word was even used is disturbing to me.
