    we tell people bad things will happen, people will die, that's the price for freedom but try to curtail gun holders' rights when that is exactly the opposite of letting that principle be lived out? You can't be arguing for civil rights and allow only 'certain' civil rights because this is what the Patriot Act is saying and we are arguing it isn't acceptable. In the midst of the gun debate, I actually proposed this question of what is the number of deaths we were willing to live with for the right of citizens to bear arms and I got mostly either lambasted or crickets. There was a set of people however who said zero. I'll bet you a dime to a bag of donuts these are the same people who are fine with Patriot Act. They don't care how you get there, they just want to get there.
