You are making non sequitur leaps. Dont do that if you actually want to understand this issue.

Lots of things are the law that a lot of people dont want to be the law. They are, no matter which side of it you may be on, subjective. Robbing banks is not one of those things nor is it a campaign issue anywhere.

But things like drugs, immigration, gay marriage and the like are.

Most everyone agrees it is wrong to rob a bank. Less than half of people think it is wrong to smoke a joint in Colorado. Again, no matter how you feel about it, it makes sense that most people would agree on one and a lot of people would not agree on the other.
