Take for example, and individual who is anti gun, and has lost a relative to a drunk driver.

Now, this man would support a ban on weapons, never mind what kind. Upon mentioning the fact that the newest killer on the block are texters and cell phone users while driving, he totally ignores that. When suggesting that booze be banned, he becomes highly inflamed. Now, keep in mind what you just read above about him. He didn’t lose a relative to a bullet.
