Small government tyrants
Posted by Charles II on April 30, 2013
The state of Arizona has just told cities that they may not destroy guns purchased in gun buybacks (see here). They must sell them.
This is what “limited government” looks like when it’s run by the right. If they control the federal government, then they pre-empt the power of the states and of unions to rein in corporate power. If they control the states, then they pre-empt the power of the cities to govern themselves (and illegalize unions) and/or threaten to secede.
In other words, “limited government” really means tyranny administered by corporations and cranks.
