It is not a law that all Americans own guns, they have the right to own and bare arms, and not all excercise that right. The reason the "right" was made part of the US constitution would take to long to explain. In short, the authors of the constitution were able to figure out that w/o the right to bare arms, the rest of constitution would become meaningless - in short order.
And, one cannot own a fully automatic weapon w/o special permit, so it isn't "anything goes".
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
