Ask your friend to provide a specific example...

where a monopoly has been established and sustained without collusion with government. Oligopolies and monopolies, even if established, soon fail under the pressure of the free market. Also point out that the term corporation is a special class of business with special privileges granted by government.

In addition, ask your friend who gets to decide who is "too stupid" to own a gun because it's pretty easy just to label the people you disagree with as "stupid."

Your friend is one of those people that think - "If only we could get the right men to plan society, everything would be grand." The Germans thought Hitler was that man, and Times even named him Man of the Year in 1938. Have your friend read The Road to Serfdom which can be found found for free and is a very short read.
