The Argument Against Gun Control for the Liberal

This is how the NRA convention opened — with Rick Perry shooting rifles and talking about God.

This is the best argument against gun control for a liberal.

Rick Perry is everything you fear in government.  I don’t have to list the reasons — you already know why you hate him.  Here is the problem you have:

Gun control will never disarm Rick Perry.

He’s the governor of a state.  That makes him the head of the Texas National Guard.  He’s the commander in chief of the state police.  He’s the head of the organized militia, the Texas State Guard.  In short, he’s one of the Only Ones that you will always be leaving a gun with.

Think of all the things you think Rick Perry is capable of.  Why in the world would you trust him with guns governing an unarmed populace? I agree with most of his politics and wouldn’t do it.

When you are thinking about government regulations, you have to remember that at some point in time, your worst political enemy is going to have his hands on the top office, and the regulations have to be crafted so that he can’t do anything too terrible with them.  Do you really trust your life to Rick Perry?

    ^ That. The best and strongest argument for a strictly limited government is that your political enemy will someday wield those powers you just granted yourself to control your political enemy. How stupid do you have to be not to see that?
