Well put

You are one who understands the tenants of liberty. Rights are inherent. I would also point out that the specific argument you bring up is the foundation, but it is not where we rest. For example, the argument you bring up is good, but it would be difficult to defend the right to posses semi-automatic rifles with 30 magazines under that argument. Now, don't get me wrong, I think we should be allowed those. I'm just saying that we should always start where you point out. But then we must keep going.
