 Of course it should come as no surprise that it is once again it is the Libertarian UKIP leader who brings sanity to the hysterical UK gun 'debate'.

Now, I don't really have a complete axiomatic politics system, as I'm a pragmatist who thinks any system will involve throwing some bodies under the rug. The question is, whose bodies is your system built on? I think axiomatic approaches are self-delusions because you can't get anything a priori, so I don't believe in natural law as such. Revealed truths about government don't tell us we have rights, either, they tell us we have duties and then tell us that politics involve killing people, unfortunately, and there is no just political system, so that's not helpful, either, for the axiomatically inclined, particularly those who make a big fuss about "rights" and "liberties".
