I realize this is a rhetorical question, but it is so true. I think the answer is evident in thier mentality in the first place... Understand, you are dealing first and foremost with individuals who are scared and think that everyone else should be scared as well. Instead of educating themselves, they feel we should all hold hands and cry out for the meanies to leave us alone. The fine line between pacifism and cowardice cannot be measured until it isn't your life on the line, but rather, a defenseless loved one, or even a random stranger who cannot defend themselves. Well I, for one, will not hesitate to draw my .45 and dispense with the pleasantries if God puts me in a guardian's position. I value peace, but these jokers are just hiding behind PC rhetoric and idealistic B.S.
