Because of the unconstitutional notion that some "special" people should be allowed to defend themselves and others shouldn't.
In other words the employees of the state and the elitist's lives are more important than ours.
True. And it's also exactly the opposite. The productive citizens are far more valuable and important than government parasites. Who are the value producers? Who are the value destroyers?
Aside from government and criminals, everybody else does business of their own free will choice. When it comes to government and criminals they do "business" with force, fraud and coercion.
I wonder about the Libertarian premise. Assuming people on this forum that are afraid of the vices that the Libertarian premise has a hands-off position on, and would stand firm on individual rights and especially 2nd Amendment -- no-infringement whatsoever -- condier these points under the Libertarian premise:
1. How much would the vices infiltrate citizens lives and society? Probably not much more than they already have. But for examples sake, let's say vice doubled. How much violent crime would there be? How dangerous would it be for citizens and society? How bad would that be compared to number 2 below.
2. Without the Libertarian premise, how far will government infiltrate to nullify the 2nd Amendment? All the way to gun confiscation. How much violent crime would there be? How dangerous would it be for citizens and society?
