    Do you believe it is constitutionally/legally/conceptually/morally acceptable to...

    ...Limit the gun rights of law-abiding citizens because a negligible minority might shoot up a theater?
    ...Limit the religious rights of law-abiding muslims because a negligible minority might fly an airliner into a skyscraper?

    If you believe one is acceptable but not the other, please explain, in detail the difference.

    === EDIT===

    Thus far, the only person to admit having a (typically liberal) double standard on this issue is Nosmo King:

    I added his response to the poll as he did not have the courage to do so.

    Dam...I thought you were talking about voter ID laws...but go on and tell us why a law to prevent a small instance of something is a bad thing.

    You are for taking away one right because a very tiny number of people might use it to commit a crime, while you are for protecting another right from any attempt to stop a similar number from commuting a crime. Pretty simple concept. And that is why you won't answer.

    Public policy based on extremes virtually always yields bad laws.
