Sacrificing the innocent for "safety"

Why is it that the first reaction of government-supremacists when there's any real or potential danger is to violate natural human rights-- to violate liberty-- in the name of "safety" and saving lives?

Are they really this clueless and ignorant of history.

Yes. Yes, they are.

Violating liberty never saves lives in the long run. Not ever. It always ends up costing lives-- more lives than are lost by respecting liberty completely. Liberty is messy-- but violating liberty is evil.

To violate liberty for "safety", saying it is because you want to save lives, is one of the dumbest public positions you can take. This is what anti-gun bigots are doing with their calls for "gun control" and "common-sense gun reform" or whatever new anti-gun owner scheme they are pushing.

It's never going to increase safety-- except in the short term, for bad guys like thieves, politicians, rapists, kidnappers, and murderers. Why make them safer? Why sacrifice innocent people for the sake of the bad guys? Makes no sense to me. But, then, I'm not political.
