NRA supporters love to talk about their supposed rights and freedoms. [View all]

And this right of which they often speak is the basically unrestricted right to own any form of weapon that they desire.

And when they speak of freedom, it is the freedom to carry whatever weapon they desire.

The right rests on a misreading of the Second Amendment. A misreading "found" by a so-called originalist who had to discard 1/2 of the actual Second Amendment to support his argument.

And that freedom, it results in the majority of us feeling less free, and being less safe.

But owning a weapon leads to the illusion of safety, the dream that owning that weapon will protect the owner.

And dreams and hopes do not need any logic. They must simply appeal to the basic desire to feel safe.
