Well, I don't want to 'balance' my 2nd Amendment rights so I try to see abortion from the Lefts point of view. I don't want "common sense" gun control any more than the Left wants what I might consider "common sense" abortion laws.
I would always want to ere on the side of too much freedom over restricting the rights of my fellow citizens. Who am I to define what is important to my fellow citizens?
I know what I value and I can't expect my rights to be valued if I am unwilling to value the rights of others.
Imposing one's will on others is a condition that isn't going away any time soon. Apparently, defending one's rights, be it the second or any other so-called right includes, unfortunately, ensuring that others do not get what they consider their 'right'. In the case of the second, at a guess, the right to a gun free society.

Well, I don't know if we need more political freedoms but I'm all for economic freedoms. And I'm all for a more conservative foreign policy. American adventurism is completely out of the control. We need an Amendment to our Constitution that says you can't drop more than 1000 bombs on one single country per year without a declaration of war from Congress. The US military is in a rampage in the ME.
I don't know if I agree with your criticisms of the Democrats. I have not heard a single Democrat say they want to get rid of the 2nd Amendment rights. I've heard many say they want to get rid of machine guns used in mass shootings. Please give me a link or post of quote of one Democrat who wants to get rid of the 2nd Amendment
