I think it was important for BSA to fight this issue because more than gay rights issue it is a freedom of association issue. If the government can force groups to accept people they don't want, maybe soon they can force people to join groups too...

I'd completely agree. Tolerance or whatever is one thing - it's another for an outside entity, especially the government, to determine for you what you must and must not accept on moral terms.

If banning guns will be enough to stop people getting hold of them , the same thing would have worked with illegal substances ...

I thought it was quite obvious and I'm anti gun myself...

Do not forget we're coming from a different culture on that particular subject...

I only know 2 people with guns and they 're part of a shooting club...

I never been raised with guns around me and my position is motivated by these factors..

If I was living in the States , my position and principles may have to be adapted to a different environment..
