  •  I wouldn't even consider banning them. (9+ / 0-)

    They're perfectly sound progressives who are wrong about one big issue.  As big as it is, though, it's not a defining issue of human decency.  It's not like they're the "good progressives who happen to be racists" group.  As long as they tolerate--and they'll have to--my belief that the desire to own guns in excess of what you can plausibly use for socially sanctioned purposes is a bizarre psychopathology, they're fine with me.

    •  To cite a similar past discussion... (4+ / 0-)

      ...it was proposed a couple of years ago to define advocacy for a single secular state in Israel/Palestine as beyond the pale (hmm, bad word choice?) on Daily Kos, because it more-than-implied the "destruction of Israel."  That didn't get anywhere and I don't think this should either, but it doesn't mean people can't call me a self-hating Jew.

      I mean, give me a genuine answer.
      What numbers and sorts of arms do you think the Second Amendment SHOULD protect?
