I do see things I fear and things I do not. But I rationalize it. I fear crime, I carry a gun because of that but I do not live like a hermit in my house afraid to go out of it because of the risk of crime.

I might fear a oppressive government, I fear a nut job going off at my local airport much more. Therefor the SA7 I might use against that oppressive government I will sacrifice the right to own so I do not have to worry nearly as much about the nut job. If you disagree fine, no problem. If you get enough people to disagree then you can change the laws, otherwise you abide by them. Simple stuff

Now somebody break out the "he who would sacrifice liberty for safety" quote.
