A relatively well-known liberal friend and blogger and I were having a little conversation the other night on the 2nd Amendment. I made the remark that liberals, in general, wish to ban private gun ownership. She not only agreed with me that banning gun ownership was a bad thing, she also said that a ban wasn't what liberals wanted.
While I conceded that liberals, "in general," may not wish to ban private ownership, after pointing out to her many liberal vocal opponents to 2nd Amendment rights, she started to see my point.
Well, it certainly didn't take long for me to find examples of this very point.
