We dont believe GOD Granted you that as a Right...we believe the Federal Government of the US Circa 1780s Granted you that right.
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.
it doesn't matter what you believe, you do not understand U.S. government and the philosophy behind its founding if you think our government is the body granting ANY rights. founding documents are merely a reflection that those rights have always existed and are laws of nature, which are self-evident. government's role is intended to be nothing more than protection of the citizen and their individual rights, which obviously includes protection from governing bodies.
it makes me kind of sad really, that you think rights are granted from government. but I guess that's why when your government came knocking for guns no one put up any kind of a meaningful resistance.
