So its better to give everybody every freedom at the expense of security? We should put innocent lives at risk so that a small minority will not have to go through a minor inconvenience? This type of situation wasn't around in Ben Franklins time. Don't use outdated quotes from history to make a point. Anybody who is not a fool knows that some rights are greater than others. The greatest of all being the right to life. Without this right what do the others matter? You take away this right by putting people in danger to protect anothers feelings. Life over feelings lets think here which one is more important?
