Gun control advocates are ‘moderates’

It isn’t the first time I’ve seen this and it probably won’t be the last:

Bloomberg, who was a Democrat before he switched parties for his first run for mayor in 2001, is a political moderate on such issues as abortion and gun control.

Why aren’t politicians that want to, and do, violate the constitution considered extremists instead of moderates?

  1. Because the Constitution – the idea that the protection of liberty is government’s only ligitimate role (“…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,…”) is extreme. Tyrany is the norm (the “mainstream”) around the world and throughout history.

    In that sense, you should gladly consider yourself an extremist.
