You Need An Interest Group For Everything

Megan McArdle is lamenting that her hobby of book collecting has been outlawed by Congress.  That’s one of the major reasons many of us do what we do here in the gun blogosphere.  No hobby is safe.  It seems you need an interest group to lobby for your right to do anything these days.   Somehow I don’t think this is what the founders had in mind when they created a federal government of limited and enumerated powers.
