How can you have a right existing by nature/natural law to a man made artifact only invented in the last few centuries ?
The natural law is the "right to defend oneself"
Fact is that the 2nd amendment was written on paper by human beings just over 200 years ago. It didn't come out of a burning bush and wasn't delivered
carved in stone to a mountain top.
It came from the minds and experience of several men (founding fathers).
While I see lots of energy expended on inalienable right there seems to be a deafening silence about a well regulated militia.
Silence is not deafening, because it cannot be heard, but you borrowed the phrase from some previous writer to make your point. So you relied on the
experience and knowledge and wisdom of a member of the previous generation for your cryptic comment? Well we in America rely on the wisdom and
intelligence of men who actually threw off overbearing dictatorship by force 200 plus years ago. Lots of your relatives died at the hands of these
I even think it was the British in England that lost the war.
Guess you don't learn from the mistakes of the previous generation.
Me, I am irish and it is glad to see the bloodshed the british foisted on the irish to come to an end.
