Resistance Is Futile

posted on June 19, 2015

In a chillingly arrogant, condescending ramble, Sean Palfrey, MD, has proposed a modest plan over at Huffington Post: Use the democratic process to destroy firearms ownership bit by bit. Positing that “bullets and firearms are pathogens, similar to the smallpox virus …,” he suggests “communities around this country could vote to establish … firearm-free blocks, zip codes, towns or cities.” And this would be different from what hasn’t worked for more than a 100 years (arbitrarily starting with the Sullivan Act of 1911) in what meaningful way?

The illogic that underpins this suggestion is stupefying. A vast, overwhelming majority of firearms will never hurt anyone, and a preponderant majority of their owners live long, fruitful, peaceful lives—and have done so for well over two centuries.

Now try hanging around with the smallpox virus. To suggest the same methods will solve the problems of either is absurd—and dangerously so, if you care about liberty at all.
