    I happen to be a member of a group that thinks it is a liberal value to support all of the Bill of Rights.

    Thank you for noticing.

    As far as what I am railing against, that is often just speaking out against authoritarian bigots who engage in profiling and insulting and lying about large groups of people who have never done anything wrong and are never likely to. As far as I can tell, speaking out against that sort of thing is also a liberal value.

    But judging from your writings, that will have to be something else that we disagree on.

      I already witnessed the same group of RKBAs, gushing about 'gun bans' with NRA-approved imprecise language, trade recs for their hypocrisy. And of course they're right here now, backing you up as you complain about just the sort of thing they did. Try and make me care.

      Again, alienating folks like you presumes that there is some common ground to begin with; on this issue, there's not. For all that you like to talk about being liberal, on this issue your group is out of step with the Democratic party, with liberals, even with many Republicans and gun owners. And they will have to defeat you in Congress, as they are in some states, Maryland being a good example today. It won't be liberals on your side. It will be liberals defeating you.

      Queue up the last word as expected, and have a good evening.

      If we cannot make our communities safer with the Congress we have now, we will use every means available to make sure we have a different Congress. – Gabrielle Giffords

      from a progressive support or interpretation of the Bill of Rights.  Such absolutism is more in the domain of conservatism, libertarianism, and anarchy.
