This brings me to another point of contention; whether the Second Amendment is a right or a privilege. Back to the core or the issue with rights entitled to all free men by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and the attacks on those rights, chipping away at them over time, I've begun to ponder on what those rights become if we allow them to be whittled away.
noun. prerogative - privelege - charter - franchise - right
When we become complacent and allow our rights to be restricted, infringed up, reduced, or otherwise compromised, they no longer are our rights, but privileges, subject to denial by an extremist, socialist, totalitarian state which no longer serves the will of the People, no longer is the means to the protection of our rights, but the method by which we become victimized, rights stripped away. The Second Amendment, and the Bill of Rights at a higher level, entitled all free men, all citizens of the United States, to the protection from persecution, the rights to live unencumbered by government intrusion and burden.
When a right becomes subject to licensing and regulation, it becomes a privilege, further subject to outright denial.
How is that liberty?
