Because this is still a free country no matter what the democrats are trying to do and our laws allow everyone who wants to own a gun to do so as long as they are responsible gun owners. If guns are taken away from honest Americans who want to own them the only people who will have guns will be the bad people of our society will be the only people who will have guns. The police readily admit that they can't stop crimes from happening and their main job is to catch the killers, robbers and others who break after the fact. Senior citizens will be hurt the most if their guns are taken away because someone my age doesn't have a chance against a young strong man or woman. I have COPD and there is no way I could handle a much younger person who wants to take from me every thing I've worked hard my whole life to own. Just the exercise from trying to protect myself would probably take my breath away and I would die from an attack. As it is I can hardly walk around my yard without stopping every few steps to catch my breath. So how could I ever protect myself against a person might break into my home. Home invasions would sky rocket across the country and senior citizens would be the main target. So if you want to protect your older parents and all other elder members of your families you must stop the gun take over.
