I believe strongly in our freedom to possess firearms. It's not only about the ability to hunt. We all know you don't need automatic weapons for that purpose. It's about the freedom to protect yourself if you believe you need firearms to do so. I get it. I don't possess any firearms and I don't want to live my life that way. But others can, and they can own guns as long as they're not automatic weapons. So yes, I'll give up that freedom.
