Firearms FAQ

Lady Liberty answers your questions.

What is the Libertarianz position on self-defence?

Libertarianz believes that all citizens have the right to self-defence and the right to possess the means of self-defence. This right is delegated to the government, for the purpose of an orderly, legally defined enforcement. The police, however, cannot be everywhere at all times. It is essential, therefore, that individuals have the right to possess the means of self-defence as a last resort in the defence of their own life, liberty & property.

But wouldn’t more guns mean more crime?

Prohibition doesn’t disarm criminals. It only disarms law-abiding citizens. Criminals will always be able to obtain weapons, whether legal or not, but will be less likely to commit crime when citizens have the means of self-defence.
