Don't force beliefs on non-criminals

I find it rather ironic that the powers that be i.e., Congress/the White House, want to have more restrictions on firearms. We owners who do not break the law are the subject of their ire. Let us suppose you are driving down the highway going the posted speed and obeying all other laws when all of a sudden you get the dreaded red/blue light special behind you. Being a good, law-abiding citizen you pull over only to be issued a citation for not breaking any law. It is called a just cause citation. Doesn't make a lot of sense other than the fact of being on the highway.
The liberals of the world don't like guns, so their response is to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens. Lame idea. I personally don't like certain automobiles, but I do not get upset and say you Mr. or Mrs. Liberal should drive a certain car that I prefer. What you liberals are trying to do is force your beliefs on me. I wonder how quick you would yell and scream if you were told you didn't have the right to continue your religious beliefs or some other facet of you life. Think about this before you want to trample my rights. I will stand my ground.
