But the difference MM fails to point out here is the consequences of each side attaining their goals. The Conservatives (which Medved clearly isn't) want the government to uphold the Constitution and protect their "unalienable" rights, The moderates/liberals/progressives want the government to break it's contract with "we the people" and violate those rights. The Conservative course leads to more freedom and liberty, the Moderate/liberal/progressive way leads to less freedom and liberty. I didn't go to law school with the Clintons but the correct position is clear cut to me.

The Great Gun Debate shows American political discourse at its irrational worst; with both left and right promoting panic and hysteria that distracts attention from the nation’s truly menacing problems. Instead of addressing crushing deficits, economic stagnation, political gridlock, and the erosion of middle-class security, politicians and pundits obsess over gun violence—one of the few challenges where the United States has made dramatic progress in recent years.

How can the president and his supporters work themselves into a self-righteous lather over minor regulatory adjustments that have been tried before with no measurable impact on the rate of firearms...
