    When the country was all gung-ho for war in the run up to the invasion of Iraq, Barack Obama showed how one could oppose the war without being painted as a dirty hippie. He stated that he wasn't against all wars, but he was against dumb wars.

    The same approach needs to be taken on the issue of gun ownership. A politician can say that they support Second Amendment rights, but that they are against dumb gun laws. They can say that they are not for widespread gun control, but they are for common sense gun laws. They can say that they support the right of gun ownership, but point out that there is a responsibility that comes with gun ownership.
