This kind of language always gets my dander up. No human or earthly institution grants Natural Rights, such as self-defense. Sorry, I still believe that "to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men".Communities that recognize and grant Second Amendment rights to responsible adults
As long as rights are granted to their fellow animals by the "more equal" pigs, they can be retracted by the same self-righeous swine.
As longs as people continue to use this kind of language, we're fighting the battle on the enemy's terms.
