At ISideWith.com, someone posited a stance on whether or not there should be any background checks before the purchase of fire-arms.
“Libertarian in Paris, TN” said:

Leave it up to progressives and other gun control zealots to come up with some of the most retarded types of responses imaginable from a logical point of view, in some cases a moral point of view, and as a result of omissions of important facts.

Well, at least to some degree.
West Virginia lawmakers have managed to override a veto by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin of a bill that would allow adults to carry concealed handguns without a permit.
The Democratic Tomblin used his veto to override peoples’ second amendment constitutional right to bear arms but the West Virginia legislature didn’t let him get away with it.

Christopher Cantwell, whom i find myself disagreeing with slightly more (see here and here) than usual lately, has been banned from Facebook for making what is nothing but a common sense statement, as well as a libertarian statement.
This being, that if people in Cologne had the right to bear arms in order to protect and defend themselves, many rape victims would likely not have been rape victims.
This notion of the right to self defense, using firearms if necessary, against violent criminals is wholly alien to the left-liberal nation state, to the point that advocating it will get you banned from a social network platform. Obviously, the expectation is that you are not only a victim, but that you should accept and resign to such a fate, even as the state itself is happily importing your assaulters and rapists. To suggest otherwise is a “violation of terms.”
