42. Heh? I Don't Get It.....
I guess there are folks who have a problem with those things, but usually its something regarding each thing you listed. Issues regarding what you have posted are not as black and white as you have stated.

I have no problem with gun ownership, just as long as there is regulation on gun sales. I don't wish to live in a society that needs a gun in every house to feel "safe". Hunting is "a" ok with me. A pro-gun nut will try to make this statement "black and white". I expect it...

I used to smoke and still have no problem with others choosing to smoke themselves... just please have clue as to how second hand smoke affects others around you.

I am a recovering alcoholic, therefore I no longer drink alcohol... does that mean I rail against drinkers? Nope....

These issues are not black and white as you seem to make it out to be. Usually this is something the right wing does in painting liberals as intolerant towards those who claim to accept the things you listed.... let's not fall into the right wing bullshit please, it's divisive and dishonest.
