How A Free Market Can Defend The Second Amendment

Businesses and some arms dealers are defending the Second Amendment by limiting or prohibiting sales to government agencies in locations that outlaw that same right to private citizens.

The only way that has ever been discovered to have a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is through the free market. And that’s why it’s so essential to preserving individual freedom  Milton Friedman

Government and The Power of a Free Market System!

What will it take before those in power finally get the message that they cannot just regulate and legislate our rights away, rights that are guaranteed to every American citizen by the United States Constitution?

The Second Amendment has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years due to numerous acts of savage violence from crazed individuals who used fire arms to slaughter others.  Victims have included even the most innocent and helpless among us and everyone is outraged.  What to do?  

Ideas of what could and should be done about the growing violence in our culture, without infringing on the rights of  law abiding citizens to own weapons, has become a serious topic for debate.  The discussion must continue, but for now those who manufacture fire arms are constructing a more equitable way to defend the Second Amendment.  No longer will they sell fire arms and fire arm-related products to any state, county, city or municipality that restricts their citizens from that same privilege.

A growing number of fire arm and fire arm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.  Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. on 22 February 2013 for CNS News

The article refers to The Police Loophole which at the time that Williams made the initial report for CNS News, was only 34 companies.  However, on my count Monday evening, 25 February, Hawaii Pacific Time, the list had already expanded to 87 companies.  Many of  these businesses have seen this day coming and have long standing policies that limit or ban sales to government agencies in locations that prohibit that same right to private citizens.  Others joined the cause after recent legislation was passed in New York.

This is a bold idea!  That government can be restricted by private industry when that same government is restricting the rights of the people is powerful!  It has the taste of a ‘Tea Party’ rebellion that took place in Boston Harbor more than two centuries ago.  This ‘line in the sand’ is a choice that can only be made within a Capitalist System, ouch Mr. Obama! 

Conservative commentator and constitutional attorney Mark Levin approves.  He further suggests that this action can be applied to other goods and services.  Levin argues that the economic and political might of the people can be unleashed through the free market system, as a way to strike back against those who would seek to impose restrictions on goods and services for private citizens, yet demand exception for themselves and their agencies.  Bravo Mr. Levin!

This is a remarkable way for a company to stand up and be counted, because it is not about profit.  After all, these companies will loose revenue if they cannot sell to law enforcement, so credit must be given to those who stand by the principle that “liberty and justice is for all!”

Milton Friedman  (July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006)

Milton Friedman, recipient of the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize for economic science, was a senior research fellow at the Hoover Institution from 1977 to 2006.  In addition he was Paul Snowden Russell Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Chicago, where he taught from 1946 to 1976, and a member of the research staff of the National Bureau of Economic Research from 1937 to 1981.  Friedman was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1988 and received the National Medal of Science the same year.  He was widely regarded as the leader of the Chicago School of Monetary Economics, which stresses the importance of the quantity of money as an instrument of government policy and as a determinant of business cycles and inflation.
