Gun rights vs Property rights

Posted by Bill Nance on August 27, 2008

Steve Chapman over at Reason has some good insight over what to do when rights conflict.

The Juice:

For the NRA to demand that guns be allowed in every company lot is just as oppressive as it would be for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence to insist they be prohibited in every company lot. When gun-rights advocates oppose the use of government power to suppress firearms, they are advancing freedom. When they use government power to dictate to private companies, they are harming it.
