The Gun Control Debate Isn’t Really About Guns. It’s About Human Rights

Liberals seem to think we care because “it’s our right” or merely “because of the Second Amendment,” but this isn't the primary driver behind our thinking. If it were, liberals might reasonably conclude that we don’t care, and rightly feel they hold the moral high ground. Their position is that safe schools should be valued over my gun. But this isn’t just about my right to "keep and bear arms," whatever you may think that phrase written into the Constitution in 1791 means in 2018.

Fundamentally, this is about the government's responsibility to prove I have committed a crime before taking away my rights. Let me explain.
