    I think Mr. Charles Blek misunderstands the difference between a natural right vs a state-granted privilege. My rights don't end where his feelings start.

    Twenty years ago, Blek's son was shot and killed during an armed robbery. Since then, he's lobbied heavily for legislation restricting guns in urban areas of California and nationally.
    Sadly, Mr. Blek's son had no practical means of defending himself for when that violent felon came calling. It's as though despite the fact his own son apparently didn't care sufficiently about his own ability to survive a situation that he feels the need to push everyone else into that same boat. As he knows full well, protection of your very life is sufficient need, and frankly it's OUTSIDE of the realm of anyone's justification to dictate terms of the value of one's life and the defense of it.

    Get a clue, Blek. The citizens whom you would disarm don't think their being forcibly made incapable of withstanding violent crime is in their best interests. Your son apparently didn't. You apparently don't. Condolences, but don't dare for a second believe that means you have any justifiable reason to come after everyone else who would take such steps to survive such things.

    I bolded the part that is the KEY to understanding the anti's mind set. It was tragic that Mr. Blek's son was shot and killed during an armed robbery. But if Mr. Blek's son had been killed by a drunk driver, he wouldn't be lobbying that cars should be heavily restricted in urban areas. He would go after drunk driving! But as soon as someone is killed by someone using a gun, the lobbyists want to ban or restrict guns! This is a deep and profound disconnect.
