I know next to nothing about guns, having never owned or even fired one. But it seems clear to me that there’s a distinct line separating those guns with practical uses — hunting, putting down seriously sick or injured animals, target shooting, self-defense — and those guns designed for only one purpose: killing people. No private citizen should have access to this latter group of murderous weapons.

Please don’t cry about the constitutional right to bear arms. The second and third words in the Second Amendment are “well regulated.”
