I'm afraid we will wander into pure lib vs. conservative politics and cliches. We are subject to selective info processing, look at this statement:
From a liberal perspective, society must give up some 'freedom' to be more secure from risks that result from firearms.
Social conservatives are terrible controlling of liberties in many domains that fit their world view. Personal behavior, criminal justice (rights at trial), control of the press, etc. If we start to name them, we get into terrible fights and we'd have to shut this down.
Since the OP has only one post and no further comments, I wonder if this is worth continuing.
Unless the OP chimes in - we might be all done. No need for baiting a fight, IMHO.
