Hurts their feelings being the minority and finding out that not everyone agrees with their liberal views.
Anti-gun views aren't liberal though; liberal means 'permissive'. Since the 2nd amendment is extremely permissive concerning firearms, views that support it are simultaneously conservative (conserving the meaning of the constitution) and liberal (permitting all the freedoms promised by the constitution). Banning firearms is neither conservative nor liberal, and probably is best described as 'unconstitutional'.
This is assuming 'liberal' has a semantic meaning other than 'doody-head'.
Political designations of liberal and conservative differ from those you are pointing out. Conservatives generally follow the Constitution closer while liberal political views often skew the Constitution. This is why you get "far right" and "far left" designations. It is true that not all liberals are anti 2A, but it's very few.
Maybe I can be more clear.... 'liberal' used as a noun is a very generic label for a political group, while 'liberal' as an adjective has considerably more semantic value. Using them interchangeably doesn't work, especially when talking about the 2nd amendment.
Claiming conservative ownership to the 2nd amendment is one of the biggest mistakes the gun lobby has ever made. Promoting it as simple constitutionality and common sense is how to win over converts. Until actually winning the battle becomes more important that scoring points against the 'enemy', the 2A movement isn't going to get where it needs to be. This isn't supposed to be a polarizing political issue at all, so why is it being promoted as such?
As for your claim about who skews the constitution more, your invitation to a liberal vs. conservative constitutional brawl is respectfully declined...
My mistake, ron. It's not easy being the only lefty in a sea of conservatives... Sometimes I see statements that you guys just accept as uncontroversial common sense, and it appears as if I'm being baited, even when that's not the intention at all. Sigh...
