A Well-Regulated Militia Being Necessary...

Okay, so we knew that almost 3500 youths under 21 were killed by gunshots annually, and that gunshot wounds accounted for 21,000 emergency room visits each year. What we didn't know was that, quite apart from deaths, 20 American kids were hospitalized each day from gunshot wounds.Sure, guns guarantee our liberty, to some extent. But is our right to defend ourselves with firearms against the fully-mobilized Army of a futuristic dictatorial US, or against the black helicopters of the new One World Government, really so important that we can't risk some regulation  (background checks, limits on use of guns by mentally ill people, lock boxes) to try to save the 3500 deaths and 7300 hospitalizations of youth we're experiencing each year now?
