no way to rule innocent men

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws”

Ayn Rand.

    Laws are only as good our internal morals and values. We as a republic can not legislate either. There will always be evil in the world-and people wonder why law abiding citizens carry guns.
