Government Knows Best on Guns - and EverythingJanuary 24, 2013 @ 11:37 am
The passionate push for gun control demonstrates the liberal compulsion to tell others how to live. Callers to my radio show insist "there's no reason to own assault weapons" or "a gun in the house will more likely kill a family member than an intruder."
If these arguments make sense to you, you're free to avoid guns altogether. But if the family next door feels safer with guns, or enjoys collecting them, why try to control what they keep inside their home? If they're decent folks with no history of violence or mental illness, you have no right to impose your visceral distaste for fire-arms on them.
The left nourishes the foolish idea that government makes better decisions than you do—on how to invest money you earn, what insurance to buy, and how to educate your kids or protect your family.
