If they own items that are not guns, he could be correct.

For instance, if you own a car and a spoon and consider them non-guns, then you could claim to be a non-gun owner.
Would he also be correct for any item, except a gun, that owns a Democrat?

I honestly would like to know given that in this day and age leftists have lumped classical libs into the "right wing/right of center" bucket (Tim Pool, Carl Benjamin, IDW folks). But I'll wait to see what jellybelly says, maybe somehow he can weave Russia into his explanation. :coffee:

Justin Amash or other libertarians would be the closest to pure "classical liberals."

I'm not going to write you an essay, though. Read more here if you're curious.

Historically, open borders and free trade between humans improve economies and standards of living. You have a larger worker pool to draw from, increase your tax base, spur the competition of ideas (aka. capitalism), improve on bureaucratic inefficiencies in trading/immigration systems, give people more choices in how to improve their lives (liberty), and strengthen peace between societies.

edit: an open border doesn't mean anyone can just come in; people can still be denied entry. If anything, it more easily tracks people from other nations who enter the United States.
We already have open borders between the states...and I guarantee people are not (and cannot be) denied entry between one state and the other...and it is impossible to track people going between states unless there is a specific reason for LE to track that person...

I’ve traveled Europe with the EU open borders...it’s just like going between the states here...there is no way to track your movements...you have to go through the EU entry when you enter an EU country from a non-EU country...but once you are in, its free movement...

I'd say half the people I know (mostly liberals) own a firearm, myself included. My gf is more liberal, feminist, more everything than me and owns one. I'd bet most liberals on here own one too. But I've yet to meet a liberal which has a fetish for a tool as much as conservatives do guns. It sits in my closet and when I feel like target shooting, it comes out. What else is there to obsess or show off about?

I care about gun control, not elimination of guns.
Wow ‘a’ firearm? Wake me up when you get up to 5...

Did you guys even read the very specific people the poll interviewed?
Yes, Treep

It was a poll of those very specific people who delivered Trump to the White House in 2016.

Lots of liberals own guns, some of them qualified to the expert level. Before my eyesight went south I could have outshot anybody here with an M-16. :coffee:

Nah, it's conservatives who have systemically given up on democracy, liberty, and freedom.

As history shows, the usual next step is violence...as you just suggested. If liberals march with their guns, you'll find a justification to shoot them down...as you just suggested.
