'Gun control' justifies 'gay control'

The Sacred Cow Slaughterhouse: The Post in Which I Piss Off EVERYBODY. -- Below is the part Kathy Shaidle quoted, which piqued my interest in reading the whole post, and upon which I based the title of my own reference to it: "
"Given Sandy Hook, you have to make reasonable compromises."

"We just want licensing and safe storage requirements so the wrong people don't get guns."

"Publicizing the information lets people make informed choices about who they live near."

Accepted. In exchange, gay men should make reasonable compromises over Penn State. They will simply have to accept being registered and kept a safe distance from children. This isn't a violation of their rights. It's just common sense. The public has a right to know.
Do note: this guy is actually a "liberal" who just happens to be an evil, hateful, wicked "gun nut".

After reading Kathy Shaidle's excerpt of 'The Sacred Cow Slaughterhouse's' post, I clicked the link to read it all. Just at that moment, my "liberal" co-worker stood up to go to lunch. She saw what was on my screen and semi-freaked out: "What are you *reading*?!"

So, I read to her the excerpt and explained its logic. One could see the initial panic in her eyes when she realized that the "logic" she approves as the rationale for "gun control" can also be used to justify "gay control".

But, it didn't take her long to "refute" it -- "By that logic, since every adult is capable of sexually molesting children, then every adult shoould be registered as a sex-offender and as a potential danger to children. That's comparing apples to grapes!" She had used more verbiage, but that's the gist of it.

But, of course, that is the whole point of the excerpt -- the "logic" by which "liberals" and other statists are using Sandy Hook as an excuse to justify their ultimate goal of gun confiscation cannot stand up to real-life when one replaces the terms.
