And their off, (AGAIN).....

It seems David C. @ The War on Guns is intent upon opening up the debate of RIGHT Vs. property again, in his post 'University Professors Shape Laws'. This usually leads to some interesting commentary, so it is worth checking out!

Think Thomas Jefferson has the best answer to this question;
***
"A right to property is founded in our natural wants, in the means with which we are endowed to satisfy these wants, and the right to what we acquire by those means without violating the similar rights of other sensible beings." -Thomas Jefferson to Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, 1816

First off, I think the word you're looking for is "they're".

Second, your quotation of Jefferson does little to support your arguement for forcing your will on others. If I say nobody is allowed on my property with a pink shirt, I have not violated your right to wear a pink shirt. Ir's really that simple. You wear all the pink shirts you want, just don't try to MAKE ME LOOK AT YOUR PINK SHIRT BY FORCING YOUR WAY ONTO MY PROPERTY WITH IT.
