Ruiz: Can “The Good Life” Include Guns?


While watching The Voice on NBC last night (Don’t Judge Me), I was moved by an Allstate Insurance commercial. I had to share it with the We Are Libertarians audience. However, the way that my mind works I was not simply inspired to share the video for the sake of drawing the response that Allstate had intended; “Aww…That’s nice.”

Rather, my initial reaction was, “That’s so true! What if advocates of gun control used the same logic that Allstate uses in this commercial?”

I thought it fit beautifully.

Click on the link to watch the advertisement and you’ll understand why I ask, “Can ‘The Good Life’ include Guns? ”

For the record, I think it must.
