Just think about it: if a person is law-abiding to begin with, what would be the logic behind restricting or taking away his/her right to own a gun? Penalizing people for being law-abiding makes no sense to me.
But aren't most scenarios. Law abiding citizen buys gun. Citizen commits crime with gun. How do you know someone is a criminal before they commit the actual act?
