I am free because I have the right to choose whether or not to arm myself. Get your head in the game here slick.
Rights are not given by the state. If they were they would cease to be rights.
I don't distrust the state. It is an entity. Humanity, for all good and ill, makes up the state. I distrust human nature. So do most right thinking individuals. As such, checks against power are necessary.
“You may think RaiderH8r is just a thinker. But I’m not just a thinker. I’m a doer. Every day I go out there, and rev that engine, fire it up, grab a hold of that line between speed and chaos, and wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And when the fear rises up in my belly, I use it. Fear is powerful, because it’s been there for billions of years. And it is good. And I use it. And I ride it; I ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell.”
