Political Polarity To Reverse On Gun Control, States' Rights?
#21
Well, it seems like the Democrats aren't arming up to fight Trump on the streets.  Gun sales are down.  It seems that if a Democrat gets elected president, gun sales increase as gun prohibition is anticipated.  However, in the aftermath of Trump's election, gun sales slowed.

This throws an odd twist into the NRA's policy of backing Republicans, at least if one thinks that economics is at the core of their policy rather than principle.
That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

Exactly, this is something liberals just don't understand.  Libertarians support the Second Amendment for much the same reasons as many Republicans which is the Constitution and skepticism of government.  Given the religious faith liberals and progressives have in government this is incomprehensible.
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. -- H.L. Mencken

If one rejects laissez faire on account of man's fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.   -- Ludwig von Mises
