What he's saying is that all 'people' have certian rights that can never
be taken away. All people have these rights, even minors and people that
live in opressive countries. As humans we understand these rights without
ever being told them.

Governments can't grant these rights because we already have them, and
they can't be denyed.

One of them is the ability to own properity. The use of your properity
should also be unhindered, unless it interfears with others.

Personally, I dont believe in guns but that doesn't mean I care about
other people having them. Unfortunatly, it's difficult to defend yourself
from a person with a gun other then having a gun (or other simmlarly
deadly methods at your disposial.).. Hopefully someone will invent
'personal energy shields', such a device would severly lower the risk of
guns.
