With several new gun control proposals under consideration by the legislature, Libertarians gained a high profile by speaking publicly in defense of the freedom of all peaceful, responsible people to own firearms. Videos of their testimony are included below.
The three days of public hearings in St Paul drew significant opposition to new legislation infringing on the freedom to bear arms. Libertarian leaders took front stage, emphasizing the right to self-defense, the misguidedness of restrictions which target responsible citizens who’ve harmed no one, and offering a liberty-based solution to help prevent violence at schools.
