Your average person does not understand this concept. They try to frame these problems with their world view and perceptions, and it just doesn't work. This is why we get so much bad legislation after mass shootings. I would consider a loss of 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendment rights as a result of Sandyhook to be a loss for the US, even if no gun control is passed.
