I'm usually way to the left on most things, but on guns, generally I'm center and I might even be right, except that the right has been hijacked by fucking crazies on this (and most other) issues. I guess I'm left on guns now because of the hard right turn the right has taken. While I don't believe in total, unrestricted access to all guns by every person, I generally believe non-criminals and the mentally stable should be able to have guns. Things like hollow-point bullets? No. Laying around a house with kids, loaded? No. Waiting period for a background check? Sure. But somehow, that became not enough for the NRA. Somehow it's not enough to not have a problem with gun ownership, but you have to be behind crazy-ass things like the Stand Your Ground movement. I don't get that at all. Stockpiling is creepy, regardless of whether or not it should be legal. Concealment laws aren't really ok with me either. It seems the extremists want to have everyone armed at all times and I don't want to live like that.
