"You seem to be missing the point that a EU compamy providing internet gambling services is not an illegal activity in europe!!!"
Correct, an EU company providing internet gambling for EU citizens is not an illegal activity. An EU company doing business in the US however is subject to US regulations, just as a US company doing business in the EU is subject to theirs.
Possibly, but then it wouldn't be the child's arsenal, nor the governments fault/responsibility, it would be the parents.

"Assuming you are using it as a noun" - Actually, if you re-read the sentence, I'm using it as an adjective.
"Of, designating, or characteristic of a political party founded on or associated with principles of social and political liberalism"
American Heritage Dictionary
Generally speaking, in the US, the liberal vision is one of big government or the "nanny state".
Actually, classifying someone's bias as liberal in today's US politics would generally put them in the category you've described.
@James Dean Kirby
Both of my children received .22 cal., single shot rifles for their eighth birthdays. Both are trained in firearm safety. And neither has access to any firearms in our home without an adult (locks are wonderful things). Neither has access to an arsenal without parental/adult involvement, which places the onus on the adults.
To save the rants, I believe in individual responsibility. I'm a strict constitutionalist, with libitarian leanings. I believe in firearm ownership for personal protection, and personal liability/responsibility for anything an individual might do to others. I believe in national rights. I don't believe the US has any rights to tell others what may be allowed or posted online, only the right to control the transactions that occur in the US (which US citizens should control/influence/complain about). I can't sell firearms to Canadians or Brits, why would they have the right to sell gambling in the US in violation of my countries laws?
