What did we learn from the 5000 year old Iceman?

Like all life on earth, his right was to survive. When he was found in the Alps, it's interesting to look at what he was found with. He knew nothing about constitutional rights, however he knew what he needed to have to survive and that has not changed. He was found with a long bow, arrows, and a knife for defense and hunting. He had an adz, a multifunction tool used to make the arrows and bow, he could not have lived long without it. He had a pouch with antibiotic mushrooms, medicinal herbs(?), a flint fire starter and food.

What does this have to do with gun control? Simple, it's about natural rights and the right to survive as a human being. The Iceman would not have given any of these things up to any individual, tribe or government without a serious fight to the death. 5,000 years later the tools may have changed, but the natural sovereign right to own our lives, our bodies and the tools of survival have remained the same.
