Libs and Cons and Guns

Most people do not either embrace or shy away from gun ownership because of their ideology, liberal or conservative. Rather, it's the other way around.

If your reaction to the terrible news from Aurora was a feeling of frustration over the inadequacy of current gun regulation, then you're likely to be a liberal. If, on the other hand, your reaction was to wish that someone in the audience had been armed, then you're probably a conservative.

Is it possible even to "split the difference" between, much less reconcile, these two informing impulses?
