For all of our vaunted love of freedom, we really only love the freedoms we're used to. When someone else has MORE freedom than we do it makes us a little bit angry and sometimes we react by arguing that they shouldn't have so much liberty as all that. In a world we routinely decry as being a nerfed, padded, and safety-netted charade of liberty and mockery of personal freedom and the attendant responsibilities that go with it, some of us here will argue (without apparent self-aware irony) for yet more restrictions on everyday life so that they may have a veil of safety to cling to. I don't recall ever having had a beer while attending a gun show. I'm not sure I would. Most of the venues that serve alcohol tend to serve the worst mass-market crud suds and it isn't worth the strain on my tactical pants button to down that stuff. But I surely cannot imagine publicly arguing in favor of a law that further restricts my right to do so if I choose. Are we so devolved from a freedom-loving people as all that? Do we ASK for the chains? Yeah, it isn't exactly a GUN right, precisely, so maybe we should bow to take the halter willingly. Hey, I know, maybe we can come up with a licensing plan, so we can apply to the government for a permit to drink a beer near a gun? Maybe just one a month, though. For the children.
