Last week's tragic shootings in Virginia have reignited efforts to pass new gun control laws, including extended "background checks." This presents a good time to revisit Ron Paul's writings on gun control and the second amendment.
1. Mental Health Screening is a good way to decrease Liberty, and a poor way to increase security.
Last week Americans were shocked and saddened by another mass killing, this one near a college campus in California. We all feel deep sympathy for the families of the victims.
2. More Guns Plus Less War Equals Real Security:
Last week’s tragic shootings in Canada and Washington state are certain to lead to new calls for gun control. The media-generated fear over “lone wolf terrorists” will enable the gun control lobby to smear Second Amendment supporters as “pro-terrorist.” Marketing gun control as an anti-terrorist measure will also enable gun control supporters to ally with those who support any infringement on liberty done in the name of “homeland security.”
