hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights.
I completely agree with that philosophy.

The problem with gun ownership is that pulling a trigger is so quick, you can infringe on my right to life before I can complain about it. That makes gun ownership a special case in which you have to "backtrack" from the action of the few who pull the trigger to the point of preventing the ownership of the weapon in the first place in order to protect the rights of the victim.
