Unalienable Rights

The right to bear arms is an Unalienable Right. It is endowed by the Creator and cannot be taken away unless we forfeit it by our actions.

Unalienable Rights are inherent rights given to us by God. That's why they are called “Natural Rights.” When the Founders adopted the Declaration of Independence, they emphasized that God has endowed us with “certain unalienable rights” such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. One of the unalienable rights or natural rights which the Founders knew existed but did not enumerate in the Declaration of Independence, was the right to bear arms for self-defense. This right cannot be taken away unless we forfeit ourselves.

Keep in mind the Unalienable Rights are God given, whereas “vested” rights are created by government. These can change any time the lawmakers feel like it.

The Founders were very concerned that the Constitution would never survive if we had a society that did not live a moral and virtuous life. A society that became too comfortable with luxury, extravagance, pleasure and indulgence. A society that became lazy, apathetic and acquiesced their responsibilities to bureaucrats. We see this today in so many areas of our life, and as a result, all of our rights granted to us by our Creator and the Constitution are in jeopardy. We must be vigilant defenders of our Natural Rights because there are many that are trying to take them away.

Imagine the lives that could have been saved in London, Paris, Orlando, San Bernardino, etc. if they were allowed to carry a weapon. Why is it that criminals and terrorists hit “soft targets”? Because they know there will be no one there to shoot back!!
