No Absolute Freedom In Constitution

It’s amazing how gun-rights advocates seemingly forget the meaning of opening paragraph of the United States Constitution. We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty, and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America. The definition of Tranquility is the quality or state of being calm, peacefulness, quiet. Guns are loud and they're designed to kill human beings. Carrying a weapon sends a message to everyone that you are capable of killing them. Domestic tranquility does not mean creating an environment of fear. Allowing guns on college campuses creates fear and anxiety for students and instructors/Marc Stewart. More here.

Question: Do you agree with Marc that the U.S. Constitution doesn't guarantee absolute personal freedom?
