  •  I never said that they have the same controls. (9+ / 0-)

    Not sure where you got that from. But they shouldn't have the same controls anyway - one is an right, the other an priviledge.

    To address you specific questions:

    I would hope it's never mandated to have insurance for a right. That's sort of unconstitutional.

    I think all (or at least most) CCL state laws prohibit drinking any alcohol (let alone being intoxicated) while carrying - my state does. Some, I have no idea how many, also prohibit concealed carry into bars - my state does.

    Children under the age of 16 have never been restricted from operating an vehicle as long as they're not on public property. I started driving a tractor at 7 years old, and was either 9 or 10 when I first drove a truck - all on a farm - nothing illegal about that at all. Why should the use of a gun be any different, as long as an parent or other adult provides the proper safety & usage training?
