Not Quite Getting It

Chet from Manchester, commenting on this Union Leader article:

I am a liberal, and I have no problem with gun owners wanting their guns, none at all. The recent decision by the court says a BAN is unconstitutional, and that is fine and correct. It allows REGULATION, as in background checks, so felons and the mentally ill are prevented from owning guns. The gun nuts think they are protecting a serious right, but gun ownership is really just a hobby, like restoring old cars. It is not the right to speak freely or worship, not even close. In rare circumstances a gun works for self defense, but it is rare. So have your hobby, just don't let it go to your heads.

And, these people are allowed to vote.
