So what? Plenty of things are hard to get. It is a pain in the ass to get a passport or a drivers license. But there is a reason for it, just like there is a reason guns should be hard for people to get. Because determining people who are capable of owning and handling a gun should be a measured process.
Being a law abiding citizen is only one aspect of living in a society, it doesn't mean you are exempt from having to take part in competency and security checks. Everyone is a law abiding citizen until they commit a crime. It isn't a badge of honor, it is a changeable status.
