As for what a minority of people want. I don't give a flying fuck. That is what thermoses and microwaves are for. Still not good enough, brew your own fucking coffee.
Ah, I see. So when a minority of people wanted the right to vote, you wouldn't have given a flying fuck. When a minority of people want to get married, you wouldn't have given a flying fuck. See how this works?
Political definitions are terribly difficult to get right, but if pressed I'd have to identify myself as a "conservative with serious libertarian leanings" as a means of expressing my personal belief system. I happen to fully support the "minority rights" I detailed above in virtually every historical and contemporary sense they're commonly discussed. In other words, I believe in personal freedom, personal responsibility and letting others make their own choices, coupled with a healthy measure of attention to fiscal accountability at all levels of government.
I'll add in the fact that I have two daughters and a third child on the way. I also appreciate the value of firearms. Would you care to guess the best way to prevent accidents with guns in any given home? You might start by drilling it into your children that weapons are not toys, followed by careful instruction in their proper storage and operation. You might be amazed by the results. As for idiots who don't treat things that can harm them with extreme caution, well, this is called natural selection, and it's the way our species managed to get where it is today.
You sound like the sort of person who gets a hard-on at the mere thought of government pushing every citizen into nice, neat little boxes for their own good and that of their comrades, no matter how utterly fucking stupid they or their comrades may be in their failure to exercise due caution with materials that might just cause physical harm if improperly applied to human tissue.
In short, go fuck yourself, you asinine, jackboot licking little piece of shit.
