Because the government intrinsically cannot practice any sort of ACTUAL judgment. Any rule will be flaunted and abused.
This father had his pistol license revoked -- his constitutional rights denied -- because his son talked about "threatening" a kid [a bully, even] with a water gun.
When the left says "We don't want to take away your guns, we just want more regulation", the right only need look to stories like this to completely and utterly vindicate every iota of their resistance to change.
[Notice, also, that nobody gives a shit about the actual bullying, something that people take with them beyond school and into their professional lives. You can bet some of the workplace mass shootings were against bullies who would have been a schoolplace mass shooting had their ages simply been younger.]

And this is a good thing.
I mean, it's not as good as the fucking cops actually doing the job they're paid to do.
But when tax revenues dry up and there aren't any police -- the armed populace are the only ones who can actually do anything about it.
The way I read this article - at least 34 people and their families were saved thanks to the 2nd amendment.

Over 500 stories on one page. It seems like whoever compiled these only did so for 29 months. This is, of course, a fraction of what really happened, according to Justice Department statistics compiled by the anti-gun Clinton administration, which found guns are used to thwart a crime 1.5 million times a year.

These stories do get reported, but they never make the front page.
The anti-gun Clinton administration justice department commissioned a study and found that guns stopped 1,500,000 crimes per year (That they know of. If I stopped a crime with my gun I wouldn’t report it because I don’t like cops.)
They were hoping or bad stats, but no. 1,500,000 crimes stopped per year, versus 16,000 gun homicides.
There are actually tons of examples if you, y’know, bother to look.

People using the Giffords assassination tragedy to advance their gun control or mental health agendas need to read this very reasonable piece.

They confiscated his gun for pointing out safety flaws? I guess constitutional rights don't apply to people who embarrass a government? Can you imagine if they said you weren't allowed to go to church or vote because you embarrassed the government? But it's okay if it's the 2nd amendment? What the fuck, america. Pussies.

As the Obama administration puts more and more gun-control advocates into government positions, it's important to separate bullshit claims about assault weapons from the reality of the situation. If you don't understand how things work, do you really have a right to your opinion? Technically you do, but it's not worth anything if you don't even understand the nuances of your own opinion.

Answer: The judge, James Morley, refused to let the jury properly interpret state law.
So now a man who broke no ;law - in fact checking the rules with police before entering New Jersey - is serving 7 years due to a guilty verdict that should never have been issued, due to improper instructions from Judge James Morley -- who has since been removed for misconduct.
America: We have a constitution that guarantees you certain rights, but the government can consistently ignore any one of those rights at any time, therefore they don't really exist anymore.

I can see why some people think this should be an arrestable offense, but I VEHEMENTLY DISAGREE that anything wrong was done here. Hell, if it were the police, they probably would hvae been able to shoot the people making threats and get away with it. This guy can't even fire a warning shot into the ground?
Of note is that this guy knew they used ShotSpotter technology in his neighborhood -- which automatically notifies police any time a gunshot is heard, giving them the location within 35 feet. This is a surefire way to get the police there faster than with a 911 call, which actually, to me, gives one more rationalization for firing warning shots.
No, AK-47s aren't illegal. And no, he was not charged for the weapon. He was charged for shooting it.
Personally, the right to life is listed before liberty in the declaration of independence -- implying that self-defense is even more important than having freedom of speech, religion, press. That life comes BEFORE liberty. Makes sense.

The reason the 2nd amendment exists is, in part, so we can defend ourselves during emergencies. Suspending gun rights during an emegency is idiotic - Criminals aren't going to follow the law! This just criminalizes people who need to defend themselves.
How'd that gun control work out during Hurricane Katrina? Government took guns away from people, and then the government AND the criminals BOTH got to shoot whoever they wanted. People literally did not even have a fighting chance. (It should never come to a fighting chance, but the reality is, sometimes it does.)
Granted, people are still allowed to have their guns at home. This is a frog-boiling technique: Get everyone used to not having their rights in an emergency. Then, later, declare more emergencies to take more rights away. Sort of how the state of emergency declared (and never lifted) on 9/11 took away our rights.
Fuck this shit.
