Gun Quiz

Unlike many libertarians, I am not particularly rabid about gun rights.  It's just not an issue I am that passionate about one way or another.   I have always thought that the one monopoly the government rightly should have is on the use of force for anything other than self-defense (e.g. military, police & law enforcement, incarceration, etc.)  Given this one monopoly, it makes sense that the government should have some interest in regulating private weapons ownership.  However, we can theorize all day but as long as the Second Amendment exists, the government may wish to limit gun ownership but its ability to do so is severely restricted.

Anyway, the point of this post was really just fun and not philosophy.  Take four states:

  • Connecticut
  • Pennsylvania
  • Texas
  • Florida

Two of these states have concealed handgun carry rates by private citizens 3x higher than the other two.  Guess which.

  • "government may wish to limit gun ownership but its ability to do so is severely restricted."

    Florida and Texas. They have all the good stuff.
