SOmehow, I missed your 'imagined' right to live in a safe community free from folks owning guns.

They could always just buy up 500 acres of land, put their house in the middle, put up a fence and they can live as gun-free as they want to in their own little self-imposed gun-free zone.

But on my property? Yeah, I'm going to have guns. Lots of them. Loaded and ready to go at a moment's notice. I may trust my neighbors (those I know) but I don't trust the people traipsing through, everyone my neighbors know, all the workers in the area, etc. And no, my neighbors don't have the right nor the power to disarm me to make themselves feel better. That ain't freedom.
