I was just watching the news and found myself wondering why we (gun owners) always seem to find ourselves playing defense concerning our rights. With other far more controversial issues out there, why do we allow this to happen? A great example would be abortion. You would be hard pressed to find any liberal out there who at the mere mention of seem the topic, who won't scream at the to of their lungs about "rights". I have yet to see the right to abortion spelled out in the constitution as is the right to best arms. Still, the topic of abortion doesn't seem to be something up for discussion. To make matters worse, i saw on the news that we borrowed over 500 million from China that went to fund abortions. Taxpayers are funding this whether they believe in it or not, yet the second amendment hangs by a thread. My thought is, what would happen if conservatives launched a full scale attack on the liberals for a change on a issue close to their hearts such as this? Would they forget about attacking us in order to preserve their "rights"? Would they think twice about attacking others rights the next time? I'm just tired of defending my right to bear arms to a bunch of people who constantly are looking to attack that right. Maybe the offensive would be a nice place to be for a change. Just a thought. Let me be clear, that my intent isn't to discuss abortion. I'm just Linkin at those two issues that are largely left vs right, that have or country divided in half. There are some definite differences in how the perceived rights are treated.
