Liberalism and Gun Ownership
Via Baloo, I found an excellent article summarizing the liberal attitude toward guns. Money quotes: "Nonetheless, Leftists oppose guns at a primal level because they provide a way for citizens to exercise power without going through their managerial state." "Make no mistake – the horror stories from Britain of robbers suing homeowners for attacking them is not a system out of control. It’s a system operating precisely as it was designed to." "Therefore, the only freedoms that are allowed are ones that further “enjoyment.” There’s a reason why Prohibition of alcohol has become unthinkable even as prohibition of guns is now debated." That is all.
