Some leftist shouting "YOU ARE TOXIC AND PROBLEMATIC" or "YOU NEED TO STOP DRIVING OR EATING MEAT" isn't going to change my mind at all. I will still drive and do as I wish despite the screaming irrational leftists...

Good luck getting anything done FOR you, though it seems you are ripe for getting things done TO you.  Liberty to do as you please only applies to those with the wherewithal to actually take advantage, and that's definitely not you … or me either.

What do you mean by that? There are people who want to take away the rights to own guns and the right to free speech? I think both the current left and the current right are totalitarian idiots but the left is more totalitarian than the right at the moment.  I'm not totally partisan so I'm not above switching sides when one side gets more dangerous than another. My view now could be different 5-10 years from now.

It would seem that 'gun rights' mean little in protecting the essence of political freedom. There are practically no gun rights in the United Kingdom, and Britain has typically been a model democracy. The Soviet Union had gun rights (especially for Communists and people that the Commies trusted), and no freedom.

What matters more than firearms? Checks and balances. Enumerated rights. Fair treatment of minorities.  Respect for political competition as a means of encouraging honesty by the politicians.  The absence of a despotic monarchy and a dominant cadre party.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.
