(I)t is eminently possible to eradicate guns from a society -- even in a society where nearly every single adult men is familiar with guns (during their military service.) And eliminating guns from a society is easier than eliminating crazy people.
I'm against eradicating guns from society and against the City of Chicago's ban on handguns. However, we have a functional first amendment and, simultaneously, a prohibition on yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater. You'd think a functional second amendment could co-exist with restrictions that would ban a 22-yr-old (possible) schizophrenic from buying 9mm Glocks with 30-round magazines.
