YEEAYYY! SO glad to see this. 
Now all those predators, home-invaders and school-shooters, because they are SUCH law-abiding citizens, will all behave themselves and there will be no more gun violence.

As for the rest of us, well it won’t matter that our rights are being whittled away because there will be no more violence. Can’t wait.
