But with that “Right to keep and bear arms” comes the responsibilty to obey the law. In many “developing” countries they “live by the feud”. Old tribal revenge motivations from past actions that would result in a blood bath. Rwanda comes to mind with the Hutu and Tutsi . The hatred between Sunni and Shiite in the Arab world. I think Newt’s idea of basic human rights for all the world is on point. But a “2nd Amendment” for the world just doesn’t seem feasible. Here is where the Judeo-Christian principal of “Thou Shalt Not Kill” was instilled in our society. But even here the lawless ABUSE the right. Case in point the gang warfare in the USA. Many feel that disarming our populace will make us “safer”. Evidence has proven to the contrary in countries where it has happened. Crimes involving a firearm must bear stiff punishment WITHOUT some judge being able to plea bargain it to a lesser charge. Mandatory sentences that aren’t subject to “good behavior” reductions of time served. The laws are already on the books, but to many times they aren’t enforced in the courts. Adding more serves no one. You also cannot legislate the actions of a deranged person. But if people were allowed to protect themselves the “toll” from the deranged might be less.
