Glenn, one could also argue that the billionaire whose friends can all afford the time (other people's) and money to get permits (and/or hire armed security) under very restrictive laws might like a system that disempowers the underclasses.

Same with politicians whose states make exceptions for, of all people, politicians. Legislators getting to carry in the state house (when normal people can't); that sort of thing.

When we allow the government to think of its members as a special, privileged, ruling class, we are setting ourselves up for trouble.
