The first thought that occurs to conservatives when viewing the current liberal attack on Second Amendment rights is that liberals are trying to disarm everyone so the government can become more of a dictatorship and less of a democracy.

But it is quite likely that liberal distaste for guns stems from a deeper, unacknowledged aspect of the liberal psych -- the wish to eschew responsibility for their actions leads them to make things, not people, guilty for everything: "the gun made him do it." A key aspect of modern American liberalism is the rejection of the traditional Judeo-Christian moral code. Liberals believe in casual sex, government rather than personal charity, and the right of individuals to live off of society rather than carry their own weight -- to the extent possible given their abilities -- among other things which violate the laws laid down by God.

A common liberal misperception about the nature of God's laws is that they exist merely to establish that God is the top dog; that people have to dance to His tune.
In reality, the Judeo-Christian worldview holds that God's laws are designed to help us be as happy as we can in this life, and in the next. God is a loving Father, not a cop hiding in order to catch us speeding so it makes sense that He would define laws to help us not to oppress us.
