While leftist politicians continue to demand that repealing the Second Amendment is the only viable pathway to a reduction in gun violence, one notable libertarian voice is insisting that citizens are not the ones who should be disarmed.
The gun control issue is alive and well and I’m for gun control. I’m for taking the guns away from the bureaucrats in government.
Ron Paul discussed the increased tyranny he believes will accompany a coming governmental collapse, noting one of the first steps will be the authoritarian curtailment of gun ownership.
Though he did disavow violence “for moral reasons as well as practical ones – they have way more guns than we have,” Paul said it will ultimately be up to individuals to decide whether to relinquish their weapons.
He also predicted that the government will institute new taxes on gold as an effort to prop up a collapsing economic market.
