    Why should my right be limited? Why should I be inconvenienced or harassed?

    Because you live in a society that has other people in it. And who are you that you should be immune from being inconvenienced or harassed?

    If it reduced crime appreciably more than it inconveiences law-abiding folks.The problem is there have been no such laws suggested.

    Nope, and that doesn't make you special and immune from being inconvenienced.
