What's a good book articulating Liberty principles vs Gun ControlSubmitted by nathanielgreene on Mon, 03/11/2013 - 09:25
Over 7 months ago, some friends and I began a discussion group to educate ourselves and others on the principles of Liberty as it applies to law, economics, and life. For the first several months we doubled in size each time we met at a local bar to discuss a book topic. No offense DP, but we wanted to talk to other liberty minded folks in person and provide a real community where people could come and ask questions. As providence would have it, some celebrities of the Liberty movement have stopped by, stayed and discussed with us. Several times we've had over 20 people.
We choose our agenda through two rounds of voting. Anyone in attendance can make a nomination and brief introduction. Then we do the first round of voting, each person gets two votes. Then the two finalist proceed to the final round of voting wherein everyone has one vote. Thus far we've discussed:
Economics in One Lesson
Free to Choose
The myth of the robber barons
"war and foreign policy" chapter by Rothbard
The politics of obedience
Aftershock by Weidemer
and next month "Resistance to Tyrants"
So that's all to say, we're working on spreading the message of Liberty. We're having fun while doing it. But I need your help in educating us on gun control. Please provide an article or book that really helps frame the argument, break it down to principles, or give us helpful historical background.
