For those that do not know me, I am an avid gun owner and hobbyist. I reload my own ammunition, build my own guns, and own multiple different firearms – aka the neoliberal nightmare. As such, I hold the right to bear arms as one the most crucial tenets of human freedom. Gun ownership allows one to defend their person and property from threats of violence and aggression from other parties, including the government. Criminalizing self-defense is, in practice, the prohibition of an individual maintaining their human rights.
