the cost of your 2nd Amendment freedoms is the inevitable loss of innocent lives
They know that, they think it's a price worth paying, they keep telling us that.

They can't even see the contradiction with

"We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life ..."

But they don't believe in a sacred, undeniable, inherent, inalienable right to life in lots of other ways, either, so there's nothing that special here. (Think death penalty, lack of health service, bombing the shit out of people all over the world whenever they feel like it, ect ect.)
