Over the last few weeks, there has been a firestorm of controversy about guns in the USA. Now let’s just forget about the Second Amendment for now. Let’s just forget about the Constitution as a whole, for a second.
I know what many of you are saying the whole reason we have guns is because of the Constitution, but I am here to tell you that is not true. In fact, the very notion that it is written in the Constitution that we can have guns is exactly what puts that protected right in danger.
Of course, I do not advocate changing or getting rid of that amendment because it needs to stay and it needs to stay as it is written. However, travel down the road of logic with me for a moment. You and I are children of God, right? Oh, you do not believe in God? OK, then you are a child of Mother Earth. Frankly it does not matter what God you believe in because you are a child of that deity.
With that, you and I are born with certain inalienable rights. In other words, you and I are born with the right to live. Now in order to live, you must have the same inalienable right to protect and preserve your life. Of course, that right does not need to come at the expense of someone else’s identical rights unless that person is actively trying to extinguish your right to live.
