There was a recent posting on FR (might have been American Thinker), which made a convincing argument that Liberalism was a religion. Gun control is part of the utopian dream and therefore a canonized tenant of the utopian religion. The idea here is that if you can start making the religious tenants come about that eventually well live in utopia. Frankly, I think utopia would be boring.
And yes, that sounds pretty spot on. If you come across it again I’d love a ping, and will probably try to look for that later when I have some time.
Was this it?

Probably a tenet too.
