Unalienable Right to Life

We celebrate the Fourth of July this weekend, in memory of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which begins:
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. . .

When I consider the unalienable right to life, in light of the recent McDonald v Chicago case -
The unalienable right to life is meaningless without the means of preserving life. The personal firearm has proven time and again to be the best instrument for that purpose. Anyone who would deprive you of that instrument is misguided at best, or at worst, has leanings toward despotism, as did King George III.

Have a happy 4th of July!
