15. Well, to be fair

I have seen many people carrying hammers and there are web pages for fans of gerbils.

As far as a lobby and such - well, since no one is trying to get the government to take those things away those folks don't need a lobby.

Do a google image search for any of those things you mentioned and you will find 'nuts' - ie, people who enjoy their hobby.

Do a google news search of those same people and laws being introduced to restrict their ownership of things for their hobby as well.

Are people who want to keep abortion legal also 'nuts' if they have a lobby to do so? Or are they just people who want to enjoy the freedom of having choices that they don't think a small group of people in Washington should be restricting?

Oh...I know. Abortions. Guns. Smoking. Not the same thing - but if you strip away the words and images and look at the core it comes down to the same thing - us not having the government control our lives and choices. Don't own a gun. Can't have an abortion. And the only bar I go to at times snubs the smoking ban anyway. So I 'not affected' according to some - but I am because once you let them start limiting such things they will keep limiting things.

A person can stand up on principle and not be a nut.
