The Constitution is not a Homicide Pact

Every time there's a terrorist attack or even a threat, conservatives come out of the woodwork to explain to us how we have to trade a little bit of liberty for a little bit of security. They usually quote the most famous words never said by Abraham Lincoln: "the constitution is not a suicide pact", referring to Lincoln's suspension of habeus corpus during the U.S. Civil War.

So where are these same conservatives when a lunatic exercises his unlimited Second Amendment right to bear arms and slaughters 32 innocent people? Presumably they're arguing that we have to trade a little bit of the right to bear arms for a little bit of security, right?
