As someone who holds the right to self defense in the highest regard, I often wonder why it is that self defense advocates complain about the politicians stripping away our rights, but often times won’t do their best to educate the uninformed. I also submit that the right to self defense protects ALL of our other freedoms and is EXTREMELY important to preserve liberty for free people.
Sure pro-gun legislation is great for gun owners, but it doesn’t do much to reach out and let people know all about our cause; which is the advancement of gun rights.
One must only need to look at the U.S. Constitution to understand that gun control is unconstitutional:
Self defense is one of the most basic human rights that allows a human being to defend oneself. Human rights are rights that exist from our humanity, not something that is a privilege. How one decides to exercise that right is their own decision. In America, rights tend to be stripped away from someone if they’re violating another person(s) rights and/or after a conviction by a jury trial.
Here in my state of Pennsylvania, we have all sorts of laws relating to self defense, but lets first have a quick peek at what the constitution states:
We often hear the words “To protect and to serve” whenever we hear anyone speaking about the role of police officers. Unfortunately, those words are a complete fallacy. Not only is that notion a fallacy, but the supreme court has ruled that the police have no legal duty to protect individuals and stated the responsibility of police as follows:
“Police do not have a duty to protect you as an individual, but to protect society as a whole.”
