I'm extremely liberal. I'm so liberal I think everyone should be allowed to have even LEO/military exclusive firearms. There should even be "dispute
resolution" zones where people can go to permanently resolve their differences, or commit suicide by playing FFA Last Man Standing games. Such places
could even have entertainment feeds plugged in for voyeurs that like that kind of sicking violence. Give all the violent stupid people some place to
'play', and they can sort themselves out. It's brutal, but, prisons, for the most part, don't work.
Try looking up the definition of liberal before you write such nonsense and no, I will not continue this conversation.
Considering that I'm mostly a socialist, with favoritism for abolishing money as well as equalizing quality of life and standards of living for
everyone, starting with free housing, education, and living wage with the poorest, homeless and destitute, even and especially if it it comes at the
cost, sacrifice and discomfort of the rich, I'd say that "Liberal" describes me fairly well.
I'm pro-Choice, Atheist, pro-Gay, pro-deregulation and de-criminalization of many controlled substances, and, well, all that other stuff typically
associated with being liberal.
Essentially, most of the nonsense about government telling people what they can and can't do with their own bodies, as well as what sorts of
recreational substances they can legally purchase needs go bye-bye.
Part of telling people what they can and can't buy regarding substances would also include firearms.
Let the people that want guns have em.
I have no need for them other than my grandfather's old WWII Browning .45 I carry on wilderness excursions.
Nutters are going to be nutters regardless. If people can defend themselves against nutters quit readily, it might just give some nutters pause
enough for Darwin to find them some other way.
Some people, I suppose, as you've suggested, go look up the definition of "Liberal" and try to fit whatever mold that mold offers.
I, however, make my own rules for the most part, and supply the generalization of what I believe with labels that most closely match what I believe.
Thus, I'm "liberal" by default of the convenience of the label being tagged onto so many things I just happen to support. If being "Liberal"
gravitated to some other beleifs, I'm not going to change my beliefs just to hold onto a label.
If guns for everybody is against the "Liberal" way, then, whatever.
Eventually we'll all be owned by machines, hopefully in the next 50 years or less, so, whatever we all think, no matter what we think, doesn't really
