Whose rights?

Updated 11/4/2017 10:58 AM

After every mass shooting, we hear non-stop talk about gun rights. Loud voices cite the Second Amendment as the right to have a gun.

What isn't talked about is the rights of all those dead people who were assaulted by the one with the gun. And there are many; we suffer around 30,000 deaths per year from guns. But the ones gunned down also have constitutional rights, the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." When will this country honor those rights?
