The Libertarian Enterprise

Number 44, April 21, 1999


"A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."

A Message From the Publisher

By L. Neil Smith
lneil@lneilsmith.org

I'll keep this short. This issue of The Libertarian Enterprise is about Tuesday's Littleton shootings. Every attempt is going to be made by totalitarian politicians and the shameless whores of the mass media to turn this unfortunate event into a funeral for the Bill of Rights.

Don't let them do it. What happened in Littleton is their fault and they must be called to answer for it. They must be placed on the defensive where they belong. It is their policies which created this horror.

You can aid the side of reason and decency by passing this issue -- or any article you like from it -- around as widely as possible. Hit the "forward" button on your browser and help a world that needs it.

Do it fast, before they do it to you.

Toward liberty!

One of many mantras you'll hear over the next few days is that The Troubles are brought about by the "availability of guns". For those too young to remember, a kid in the '50s could carry a gun just about anywhere (outside the cities) without drawing much attention from the citizenry, much less from police SWAT teams (which didn't exist then). And guns were "available" by mail from the Sears catalogue. Yet somehow, "school shootings just didn't happen." -- Ed.
