A deeper look at the ‘government monopoly on force’

This will be a continuation of yesterday’s “Welcoming the Obama administration, waiting for the ‘government monopoly on force.'” I closed yesterday with Josh Horwitz, of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV), decrying what he calls the “insurrectionist idea” of the Second Amendment, because it would “infringe” on “the government’s monopoly on force.” This should start alarm bells ringing furiously among those who love liberty, because what shall not be infringed is, of course, the exact opposite of a government monopoly on force–the right of the people to keep and bear arms can be looked at as the Constitution’s very own “monopoly buster,” as Tench Coxe explains.

Today’s St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner is up, expanding on yesterday’s “Welcoming the Obama administration, waiting for the ‘government monopoly on force,’ Part I.”

Please give it a look, and encourage others to do so, as well.
