"As someone that carries a Commercial Driver's License with multiple endorsements, I know that as the vehicle becomes more dangerous, more checks, training, and tests are required in order for that person to be permitted to handle those vehicles. The right to transport oneself is an inherent and basic human right that many scholars believe is implied in the US Constitution (and today, it is for all intents and purposes impossible to transport oneself in most places without a motor vehicle). Similarly, the right to bear arms (for well regulated militias) is explicit in the Constitution. I believe people have a basic right to survive, and in some cases survival means the ability to hunt and live off the land, or even in some circumstances, defend oneself. However, there are many cases where there are known limits to Constitutional rights...we have free speech but you cannot yell 'fire', threaten someone, or even slander them. We have the right to religion but not to practice human sacrifices. And we have the right to bear arms, but not chemical, biological, or nuclear arms (except for certain scientists who have gone through rigorous screening and education), though the Second Amendment merely states 'arms'. Therefore it is entirely Constitutional to regulate weapons, as they become more dangerous. Some guns are rightly referred to as weapons of mass destruction for the rate at which they can fire rounds, and the types of rounds that can be used. I do not believe that we necessarily need to ban completely any weapon per se...perhaps for hunting long guns a simple loophole-closed background check would suffice (this works well for our Northern neighbor, Canada, who have a virtually identical culture), and for handguns an additional level of training and licensing...but hobbyists who wish to use military-style weapons (and they are purely hobbyists as these weapons are useless for either hunting or defense) should have to go through many levels of vetting, training, and psychological screenings, increasing as the danger of the weapon increases. The cost of these weapons and this hobby is already quite high, so some additional requirements are not overly burdensome. It seems to me, in fact, than such gun enthusiasts would rather be proud to carry such licensing. Further, to prevent senseless death and mass shootings, a minor inconvenience for some hobbyists is not too high a price to pay."
