Make Britain safer: bring back handguns
I'm not sure how this slipped past me. Thanks, Odg.
More guns, less crime. Gun control is evil.
Edit: Where's the link?

Not allowed to link to most stuff, but googling "Make Britain safer: bring back handguns" will bring you to the article.
I grew up in a house with over 80 guns.
No one ever got shot.
In my youth, it took me many, many years (then my youth was gone) to realize that just because a guy at work likes guns, that doesn't mean he's interested in the moral or philosophical case for guns. I would see a guy looking at Guns n' Ammo at break time, and the next day I would bring in an article on the moral case against gun control. I had trouble understanding the negative reaction. Blockhead that I am, 10 or 15 years later I caught on.
If it interests you, look up Chalcedon Report: The Godlessness of Gun Control, and another good one, Southwest Radio Church, The First Freedom That Will be Taken Away, by Bill Uselton.
The red pill. Gotta love transcendence into reality. Respect.
I guess I never even considered the blue pill. I'm no longer a Right-Winger, but I was once a die-hard, and joined the John Birch Society because of it. Probably the only Canadian member they ever had.
After reading a few issues of The New American I remember it really sinking in that this mindset was a bitter pill. I loved the dogma, but I realized that being transformed in my mind by this thinking would make life socially difficult. I was convinced it was true, and I couldn't bring myself to choose comfort over truth.
That was 1988. The New American regularly featured The Freeman (FEE) in their pages, and that was a sign of things to come. I, a lifelong anti-smoker, read Mark Edward Lender's essay, 'Born Again: The Re-emergence of American Prohibitionism', and after a week of anger at realizing he was right about smoking laws, and having no defense, walked away from Right-Wing Conservatism. Once you understand the Hegelian dialectic - the two jaws of your Super Tool, Right and Left working in opposition to one another by design to accomplish an objective, you can no longer be Left or Right. You wake up. That's the red pill.
Then you are a certified crazy person, but no longer part of the masses.
Signed, a gun-rights-absolutist Liberal.
I'm flexible on the gun rights issue. I don't have to stand for individual rights. But I'm not flexible on the issue of the government's rights. Their proper authority is to punish crime, which they are not free to define for themselves. Crime prevention, or the restriction of individual freedom for civil safety, does not qualify as punishing crime. What is not commanded to authorities is forbidden to them.
"For this reason you pay taxes..." For what reason?
Is it the Adam smith institute? That's what my google brought up. They have an equally libertarian view on everything (unsurprisingly) including drugs. That would make our prisons a little less full, and decriminalise lots of people.
Glad you guys were able to find it.
