Musician Of Note - John Lennon

John Lennon was a peace activist killed by a gun in an act of violence.

Imagine the Second Amendment to the Constitution being about the automobile rather than the right to bear arms. We would have no laws and regulations regarding the automobile because it would infringe on the rights granted to us by the founders of this nation. You could drive as fast as you wanted to. You wouldn’t have to stop at red lights or stop signs. You could go both ways on a one way street. You could drive on the left side of the street. You wouldn’t need a driver’s license. You wouldn’t need automobile insurance. How many people would die because of this senselessness?

Nowhere in the Second Amendment does it say that Congress can not make laws to regulate the use of guns. The right to bear arms is not infringed with licenses, insurance (car owners must have it, why not gun owners) and regulation. Imagine gun regulation in place at the time of John Lennon’s death. Maybe he would still be alive today.
