Advocates of open carry often refer to their constitutional rights of being law abiding and responsible gun holders. They want to exercise their freedoms and will vehemently reject any attempt to restrict those freedoms. It is their case that law abiding citizens are the first line of defense against violence. In situations such as Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut or the Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, advocates will argue that having their weapons openly visible would have deterred these criminals from committing such heinous acts. They will contend that criminal prefer victims or target who are not armed and that gun control regulations should be aimed towards criminals, not responsible, law abiding citizens.

“The Bush administration’s embrace of torture and secret detentions has led our country down a dark hallway,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), who sponsored legislation to restrict CIA interrogations, including banning the CIA from using contractors to question detainees. Indeed, CIA Director Panetta announced such a ban in 2009. Another change proposed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama was the requirement of prompt notification of the International Committee of the Red Cross when a new prisoner enters CIA custody, and the granting of Red Cross access to that detainee. Obama also issued an executive order banning coercive interrogation practices, including waterboarding. President George W. Bush has previously vetoed a Congressional bill that sought to limit CIA interrogators to a shortlist of Army-approved tactics.
Two days after Obama reversed the ban, the President then signed the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009, which still contained the long-standing Dickey-Wicker provision which bans federal funding of "research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death;" (Fox News) the Congressional provision effectively prevents federal funding being used to create new stem cell lines by many of the known methods. So, while scientists might not be free to create new lines with federal funding, President Obama's policy allows the potential of applying for such funding into research involving the hundreds of existing stem cell lines as well as any further lines created using private funds or state-level funding. The ability to apply for federal funding for stem cell lines created in the private sector is a significant expansion of options over the limits imposed by President Bush, who restricted funding to the 21 viable stem cell lines that were created before he announced his decision in 2001 (Aldhous). In 2005 the NIH funded $607 million worth of stem cell research, of which $39 million was specifically used for hESC.
