“In particular, the government may not descend to the evil of preventive law. The government cannot treat men as guilty until they have proven themselves to be. No law can justly require the individual to prove that he won't violate another's rights, in the absence of evidence that he is going to. But this is precisely what gun control laws do. Gun control laws use force against the individual in the absence of any specific evidence that he is about to commit a crime. They say to the rational, responsible gun owner: you may not have or carry a gun because others have used them irrationally or irresponsibly. Thus, preventive law sacrifices the rational and responsible to the irrational and irresponsible. This is unjust and intolerable.” - Harry Binswanger. With Gun Control, Cost Benefit Analysis Is Amoral
