    I prefer the classical view of liberalism:

    So if I pointed a gun at someone, in order to show them how nice of a gun it is, you wouldn't call it an aggressive action because of my intent?

    Nope, sure wouldn't be. I have had a gun pointed at me for just that reason and never felt threatened, in fact I watched the chamber being cleared and the breach doubble checked and looked straight down the barrel. Never felt it a threatening or aggressive action.

    That's because you are comfortable with guns. I know this makes people uncomfortable, because I've done it. If you don't own a gun, you don't ever want one pointed in your direction. Just my 2-cents.

    Pointing a gun at someone is most definitely an aggressive action, and liable to get someone killed.

    It can also be a negligent action, such as the time a fellow cop, showing off his new Glock 45, pointed it at me carelessly.... "Fin," says I, "point that at somebody else, why don't ya? If I get shot, I'd rather it be on purpose..."

    I get that, the point gets back to intent. It wasn't aggressive of my buddy to do that, actions with intent are either neutral or aggressive dependent on motive.

    Negligent is more proper IMO, now, if someone is threatening my life with a crowbar and I produce the .40 that would be an example to me of two aggressive actions, his brandishing to either give himself an advantage and my brandishing to convince him to move on.

    The only ones I know that are anti gun anti military and anti police are extreme 'leftists'. Most 'liberals' I know have a different way of solving problems from conservatives but they aren't extremists. You are describing extremists.

    Perhaps. But if we're trying to compare the bases of the left and right, it does us no good to compare moderate vs. moderate. What's the point? We are looking at differences, not commonalities.
