Nothing of similar breadth exists in regulating speech or religion.

I'm not sure about that. I can rant all I like in my home. I can say things that would incite a riot, or encourage a jumper to jump, or yell "fire" all I like. But once I take it outside, suddenly I'm restricted.

So it appears to be with guns. You can do as you like in your home (short of shooting someone without cause), but once you take it outside you have to follow the rules.

A quick google search revealed that one can apply for a license, and even a concealed-carry permit. So there is an avenue. It may not be as easy as some people would like, but it's there. So I'm not sure your characterization is really accurate (or rather, the characterization of the plaintiff). You gotta jump through some hoops, but supposedly "responsible gun owners" have no problem with that.
