Its a bit like us trying to claim our Government is violating the Magna Carte or something...those arent GOD Given Rights...just rights the barons felt they deserved vs the Monarchy.
People have the GOD-given right to protect their family and their property from harm. In order to do that in this world, you need to be armed.

Did you not read the part where I stated that the right to own firearms for protection was granted by the King of England as far back as 1689?

So, you can believe whatever you want about the source of our right to own firearms, but all you are doing is revealing yourself to be ignorant of your own nation's history.
