So how have people been reacting to Ms. Gibson who first fantasized about and then actually introduced such a bill?
People in their right minds, like experienced gun owners, likely thought it would be smarter to encourage people to complete an ammo management program first.
People not in their right minds, like armed robbers, rapists, carjackers, and mass murderers who seek out safe gun-free zones to do their sociopathic work probably thought it's a great idea to make it difficult for people to acquire ammunition so they can't shoot back at them.
Others not in their right minds, like progressives, likely would've cheered because to them the idea would have been "reasonable" and "sensible" and "just feels right."
Libertarians, of course, would have been tempted to force the senator herself into an idiocy management program for introducing such legislation.
But libertarians wouldn't do that since they don't believe in coercion – the initiation of force.
But here's a thought experiment. Since libertarians do believe in the use of force in response to an act of coercion couldn't they remove Gibson from office as a matter of self defense?
Imagine living in a libertarian minarchist state in which government power is severely restricted by a Constitution with one Preamble, one Article, one Amendment and one Bill of Right: "Thou shalt not commit coercion, nor any act of intimidation, nor neither shall ye enter unto fraud."
A law, to be a law, must have enforcement and punishment mechanisms for noncompliance such as arrest, prosecution, imprisonment and/or fines. Otherwise it's not a law; it's just words on paper.
Since "Gibson's Law" would be an act of coercion against people who are neither coercing, intimidating nor defrauding anyone while purchasing a legitimate product Gibson could and should be removed from office as a matter of self defense and defense of others.
She might be found guilty of committing the High Crime of Coercion, Violation of the Law of Non-Aggression, or at the very least charged with one felony count of Perpetuating an Act of Intimidatory Non-Defensive Usage of Force. (Yes, unfortunately, even a libertarian society will likely still be infested with lawyers.)
Conclusion: Want to nip coercion in the bud? Start by nipping politicians.
