Once again you are confusing understanding your point of view (or reading your posts) with me disagreeing with the presuppositions on which they are based. I'm sorry my posts seem "leftist," but that doesn't mean I'm not here to try to contrast the conservative viewpoint with my own to see what I find. It's interesting how often you question my motives.
And, LongRifle, you are making my exact point. Conservatives have a fantasy that they are going to stop crime, Wyatt Earp style, and for that the rest of us pay in blood.
