What if a law passes so that you only have 10 rounds on hand to go play militia? What if we pass a law that says you are a subject? Then will it be a legal matter or a moral one? If you kill in defense of your rights, rights that are denied by the law, will it be murder? If a Law is passed , making me a subject, then it will have to wait for judgement until after the full scale revolt that follows. A man with a weapon is a Citizen, and a man without one is a subject. What to call it, will be determined by History.
Kellory, do rights come from God or from the law? If you say from God then you clearly don't think God's laws apply to all human beings. Or maybe you just don't think God lists freedom as a right. Just high-capacity mags? On the other hand, if you say they come from the law then I DO have the right, as a participant in this Republic to help determine how and with what you can defend yourself. The question is not where do Rights come from, but weither or not a meddling bureaucrat can interfere with them. You have the Right to determine how you will defend yourself, but your Rights stop when they interfere with mine. You do NOT have the Right to regulate MY defense, only your own.
I tend to think that rights come from God and are intended for all people. I also think that we have the right and duty to constantly regulate how those rights are exercised under the law.[/quote] "Intended" rights do not exist. No more than you can be half pregnant. it is a fact or it is a fiction. It can not be both.
"Exercised" NO. A Right is not something that can be twisted to fit the ideal of the day. It either IS, or IS NOT. If it is Right, it can not be changed, only infringed. A legal law will conform it self to the Rights of the Citizens, An illegal law will be challenged and struck down. When there is no justice to Law, there will be revolt. that is why the Founding Fathers required a militia, to balance and defeat an unjust Government.
"As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state
, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Our forefather feared government, as do many now. We (Militia) were built into the framework of the Bill of Rights, as a safeguard for everything else.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
