Guns vs Drugs

has anyone here ever noticed that the same arguments that leftists use to support drug legalization are the same ones that right wingers use to support unrestricted gun access? When I first started following politics when I was a teenager, I noticed the pattern that RWers liked banning things – drugs, pornography, abortion etc so I assumed that they also supported banning guns.

This is all part of my grand theory that deep down it’s not the thing itself but the who that drives politics. It’s not things like guns or drugs in and of itself but rather who is using it.

One thought on “Guns vs Drugs

  1. “RWers liked banning things – drugs, pornography, abortion etc so I assumed that they also supported banning guns.”

    The 2nd Amendment trumps conservatives’ any desire to ban guns for non-felons.

    “It’s not things like guns or drugs in and of itself but rather who is using it.”

    Gun violence is not the problem, it’s goon violence.
