[Robocop sends him flying through a window] Clarence Boddicker: Hey, wait a minute. Wait a minute! I'm protected, man. I got protection. RoboCop: ...you have the right to an attorney... Clarence Boddicker: What is this shiiiit... [Robocop sends him flying through another window] Clarence Boddicker: Goddammit! Godammit! Listen to me! Listen to me, you fuck! There's another guy. He's OCP. He's the senior president. RoboCop: ...anything you say can be used against you. Clarence Boddicker: It's Dick Jonessssss...

A better awkward two pages would be Obama and Billy Graham - good vs. evil.

Or Obama on one page and Stalin, Hitler and Kim Jung IL on the other - birds of a feather!

I fail to see what is awkward...are you suggesting that it is incompatible to have a respect for gun ownership and respect officers that have died honorably in the line of duty?  It is not incompatible...criminals and otherwise bad people killed those officers, not the guns on the opposing page.

Your attempt to create a dichotomoy and a contradiction as failed.  The only one that sees anything wrong with that layout is you.  Get your head out of your ass.
