Says the person who equates regulation with freedom.
C'mon seabag, are you happy that they want to place some regulation on the 2nd amendment?
No, you’re right. Maybe the term “regulate” was a poor choice of words on my part. The government must not dictate the course of our economy.
When the government is controlling the economy then it ceases to be free. The market should dictate the course of the economy. I get it….
What I meant by “regulate” is the government should guarantee a secure and stable playing field for everyone. Its job is to enact laws and
policies that guarantee and protect the rights of the individual. Without having these safeguards it would be impossible for people to start a
business and have even a chance at competing; the wealthiest would eat everyone up. But ultimately it’s the market that determines success or
failure of any given business (or at least its supposed to be that way).
And NO I certainly don’t like the government imposing regulations on the 2nd.
