You might not be comfortable with limitations, but being part of society is not about ou feeling comfortable but to form a society that best benefits the people as a whole and i described in the unalienable rights that the declaration of independence describes: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

This phrase supercedes your right to bear arms any day. What society is about is finding this balance, even when individuals feel uncomfortable with the changes or who is in charge to enact them.

And what is your solution to having some kind of regulations in society if you don´t trust the government to do it?

You need to be less vague than that. 

A few questions to ponder:


1. What constitutes a given society?

2. Where does the state gain it's authority to manage society?

3. Who controls the current political process? Is it "society as a whole?"

4. Why are billionaires and corporations so keen on gun control?

5. Should they have this disproportionate social power?

6. Is the United States of America democratic?

7. Which forms of democracy best represent the social interests and values of most people?


The rest of your post was liberal-democratic dogma which sounds nice on paper, but which is often used by the powerful to deprive the powerless of autonomy.


I don't even believe in "natural" rights. All rights are determined intersubjectively and in the United States we've intersubjectively determined that common gun ownership enhances our abilities to attain life and happiness. 


The state is the protector of privilege not the regulator. So what is my solution? Eliminate that which enforces social alienation through centralized violence -- the state and the capitalist class which controls it. That combined with lifting the poor out of poverty eliminates the bulk of violence in this country which is caused by those so desperate that they join the illegalized drug trade.
