I’m not up on all the gun rights arguments, and some of them that I am up on I think are wrong.
For instance, I believe that lowering gun ownership probably would lower suicide rates, since I believe that a number of suicides are impulsive acts.
But I still favor broad gun rights. Because I am an American and a free man. The right to bear arms was traditionally the perquisite of nobility. I do not concede that any American has better blood than I.
Force is the ultimate argument of kings, and where no king rules, this ultimate argument must be in the hands of the sovereign people.
