No, your freedom is based on the interpretation of the rights enumerated in the Constitution. Limits on rights are a common thing, especially when those rights directly result in loss of life. You are not able to shout fire in a crowded movie theater, nor are you allowed to threaten the life of another person, yet we still have the Right to Free Speech. You can own any type of car you want, but you can't drive any car you want. It needs to be street legal.

Guns, while some serve a useful purpose, need regulation. While it may be the gun holders who kill people, you can't regulate the people, so you must regulate the guns. To say that people who want to kill will find a way to kill no matter what shows a complete lack of understanding of criminal psychology and psychological profiling.
