Abstract:     
The debate over gun control has taken place in complete isolation from geographical considerations. It focuses on, for the most part, whether legalization would bring about more or fewer accidental deaths, and murders of innocents, than prohibition, and in the USA on the precise meaning of the second amendment to the Constitution. However, these deliberations, argue the authors of the present piper, can be enriched by incorporating into them into a spatial contest. When this is done, arid they are combined with the property rights philosophy of libertarianism, some very different conclusions are drawn.
