Two great points along the same track (via InstaPundit):
The Corner on National Review Online
Keep and Bear Arms - Gun Owners Home Page - 2nd Amendment Supporters

Both raise the question of why it's ok for the mayor of San Francisco to unilaterally decide which laws he'll obey and which he'll ignore. This is what bothers me so much about the campaign to legalize gay marriage, and what could end up swinging back to destroy the movement, or at least restrain it for a while. Rather than follow the legislative process (which, by the way, is moving in their favor, however slowly), the gay rights movement has decided to attack on all fronts at once. This, in turn, has frustrated portions of the public that might otherwise support the movement, and it is beginning to show signs of a cultural backlash.
