Your last point is the ultimate debate, I think.

At least in my mind. I think that is what this all boils down to, and I don't think it occurred to me until you said it.

I genuinely appreciate the fact that I have the right to purchase a gun, even though I don't own one or really have much of an interest in the prospect of it. Consequently, due to my lack of interest the restriction or elimination of that right isn't that big of a deal to me, so 30,000 lives seems worth it. I absolutely understand there is another side to the coin, though.

This is purely theoretical, but if there were a way where it wouldn't be "tyranny", what would your opinion be then?
