There are certain aspects of life...

There are certain aspects of life that bear reasoning upon. Here are some points worthy of repetitive reflection….

"Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature."

"The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule."

"In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defense of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation." - Samuel Adams, The Rights of the Colonists, (November 20, 1772). (Samuel was also known as the ‘Father of the American Revolution’).

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
- Preamble to the United States Constitution.

"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." - St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1803)

"Natural rights [are] the objects for the protection of which society is formed and municipal laws established."
- Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Monroe, 1797

There is no indication, from any available authoritative information source. That specifies that man is given any power, whatsoever, over the laws of nature. In fact, all reliable and readily accepted information, (i.e. - Bible, Declaration(s), U.S. Constitution with the attached Bill of Rights), seems to indicate exactly the opposite to be the truth. Furthermore, this is more indicative of an attempt by those whom seek Gun Control, to undermine the whole basis for the Foundation of our Union.

And, once again....Amendment II - A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Addition: There is a well known former Judge which has written a book concurring with the above statement(s). In his book, 'Constitutional Chaos', Judge Andrew E. Napolitano shows how the present system is corrupt from top to bottom. The book has been reviewed by Ryan Setliff in an article on Lew It is a very interesting read.
