Should those who oppose gun ownership be marked or identified as not needing assistance by police or military personnel?

I think you should have to really live with your decisions, are they not much more meaningful and fulfilling if carried out to their logical conclusion?

    Mar 19 2012: 'Should' implies there is a 'right' answer. How about "[what if/what would happen if] those who oppose gun ownership are marked as not needing assistance by police and military personnel?" as the framework for this conversation?

        Mar 23 2012: Yeah, I've found that 'should' tends to elicit (strong, and usually divisive) opinions, whereas 'what if' invites an exploration of possibilities.

        How are these conversations in this thread feeling for you, by the way? I've been watching them and they seem really charged to me.
