55. Your gun in your home mostly endangers you and your family. In particular, if you have children

the government can pass laws that protect them from your gun because their right to live, to have liberty and property is equal to the right to bear arms.

You have a right to raise your children as you wish, but you are required to send them to school or provide alternative education, and you have to make sure they are safe and given healthcare that they need. The government can regulate the way you raise your children so as to protect them. And that is true even though raising your children as you wish is a more fundamental right than even owning a gun.

The point is not that you should lose your guns but that the government can pass laws that regulate how you keep and use your guns so that you don't endanger others.
