Rabbit People Among Us

L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - a reminder to those who are enamored with asking permission to exercise their rights. If you have to ask permission, it isn't a right. If it's a right, you don't have to ask anyone's permission. Ever. The Second Amendment says "..., the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Unless you're going to deny personhood because of some time in jail or some woman's fear, that means no infringement. Period. [tle]

Rabbit, I don't care how many gory anecdotes you can relate to me about the unethical misuse of weapons. That's not my problem, and it has utterly no effect whatever on my rights. If every one of the 300,000,000 people in this country opposed my owning and carrying a weapon, it would still be my inherent and inalienable right to do so.

That restraining order you mentioned is an excellent example of depriving individuals of their rights without due process. Anybody can get some rum-soaked old pizzle of a judge to sign a restraining order, and under the federal Lautenberg law, that cancels--without recourse--the fundamental rights of the person the order has been written against.

And I would add that, as one of those who has crawled abjectly on your hands and knees to humbly beg the state to allow you to exercise your natural human and Constitutional rights--by obtaining a carry permit--you're a big part of the problem, not the solution. You can either be a free man, Rabbit, or a collared dog. You've chosen the latter.
