Do you believe a consensus can be ever made in regards to gun control in the USA?


I'm a firm believer of personal freedom, with no other real moral commitments apart from that. For this reason however, the issue of American gun control has always been something hard to judge for me. Liberalism would see people with guns, as they are tools to protect themselves from the government, as shown in the many revolutions over the years, including the very one that led to the foundation of the USA. Yet the casualties are still too high to leave the second amendment unchanged. Do you think a consensus will be made that satisfies or at least serves both sides?

    The scenario that you present would make a good movie. Lee Greenwood could provide the soundtrack. However, the cowardly indifferent response of the Americans to Ed Snowden's courageous attempt to stand up for the people is the writing on the wall.
