Rep. Giffords Anti-Gun Initiative
Today former Representative Gabrielle Giffords announced a new gun control initiative she is sponsoring that plans to, “raise funds necessary to balance the influence of the gun lobby". Funny, since the anti-gun folks have the full power of the Presidency and are funded by our tax money who really needs “balancing”?
While we are all sympathetic to Ms. Giffords plight and she has definitely earned a right to participate in this discussion I hope it remains one focused on the facts and not emotions.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
