This guy has some interesting ideas, am I right? What do you think about libertarians not getting licenses? Is that too extreme? What about the idea that by abolishing the permit system in a particular state, you lose your reciprocity in other states? Is that an argument to keep the requirement? And his ideas about background checks and training being good things, doesn't that clash with his other views?As a libertarian, I agree philosophically that I shouldn’t have to have state permission to exercise my Second Amendment rights. I refuse to get a carry permit. But I also live in the real world. If we abolish the permit system, Tennesseans also lose reciprocity—if you have a Tennessee permit you can carry in other states with permits. If we don’t have permits, you can’t. I also think background checks and ensuring people are able to fire a weapon safely are good things.
