54. If the government passes a law supporting gun ownership, the government is playing a role

in depriving the person that the gun kills of life, liberty, or property.

If the government enforces the right to own a gun, then the government must balance its protection of that right against my right to be safe from your gun.

Gun owners claim that the government is supposed to grant their right to own guns. The government has the obligation to protect my life to be safe from your guns.

That is best illustrated by the events at Sandy Hook. The government had the responsibility to protect those children from the gunfire. The government can pass laws that protect children from guns.
