Liberty and safety

March 19th, 2008

One of the arguments I heard the lawyers defending Washington, viagra sales view D.C.’s gun ban make is that more guns would make Washington less safe.

Even if that were true…so what?

Benjamin Franklin supposedly said, cialis generic tadalafil Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

Inherent in those words is the understanding that greater freedom is often accompanied by greater peril.

Completely denying citizens the freedom to adequately defend themselves in order to secure the hoped for (and so far unrealized) result of more safety is an inefficient and undesirable trade.
