The right to bear arms

When one person’s right is resulting in people (often kids) being killed each year, I don’t think it counts as a right anymore. In the same way people against gay marriage argue their ‘right to say no’, people who keep guns are part of something bigger that, as long as gun massacres are not being contained, is denying the fundamental rights of others to safety or life. It’s the same issue. Your ‘right’ can’t infringe on someone else’s safety or liberty. It stops being a right as soon as it does.
