The United States of America was built on a set of laws and rules that other countries simply do not believe in. You let one thing slide like this gay marriage nonsense, next thing you know we'll have ATF kicking your door in because you have a Glock in the bedroom drawer for defense of your home. That's just an example, not a pro-gun tirade.
