Michael Badnarik on Gun Control
Libertarian Party nominee for President
A: As president, I'll veto any new victim disarmament-'gun control'-legislation, and I'll shut down the agencies that enforce the 20,000 unconstitutional gun laws now on the books. My administration will defend that policy in court as necessary. The right to keep and bear arms is not negotiable."
Won't all these guns make our society more dangerous? Just the opposite! In 1999, 824 people died from firearm accidents, while the defensive use of guns saved approximately 400,000 lives, in most cases without even wounding the aggressor. Gun bans disarm victims, putting them at the mercy of murderers (or terrorists) who think nothing of breaking the gun laws.
If you can't quite grasp the concept of guns saving lives, consider how criminals would react to a sign on your lawn saying, "This home is a gun-free zone." Recall that, in "right-to-carry" states, the primary targets of gun-toting crazies were schools posted as "gun-free." Such signs advertise that our children are defenseless prey for the wolves among us.
