Are Gun Rights more important than Private Property Rights? Can there be a middle ground? Does one exclude the other?

It’s a hard question.  We all want Gun Rights (and I haven’t met a gun law I like).  But we all want the right to our real property too.  Do your property rights trump my gun rights?

Bob Mayne discusses this topic with me while we are in the truck headed to the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Dallas Texas.

    Hey Ben. I believe in private property rights, particularly when referring to home, ranch, farm,etc. You Should have exclusive rights there. When it comes to self protection, and your family’s, I think that certain private businesses, that have public accommodation, ie: restaurants, department stores, malls, and movie theaters, there should be exceptions. If you own a business, and you do not have adequate armed security, in these public accommodation businesses, you should allow law abiding customers, or patrons of your establishment, to otherwise lawfully carry concealed on your premises. I don’t know though if any legislature along those lines would pass legal muster. My opinion.

      Yeah, don’t know if that could ever be put well into legaliz and become law. Because the adequate security would have to be defined, and the government would screw that up. Finding that balance between property rights and my rights as a customer or visitor is hard. I’m still working on it. I’ll let you know if I come up with a good answer.
