Tragedy has struck as Constitutionalist Supreme Court Justice Antinon Scalia has passed away.
Barnes claims that the Courts 5-4 Heller decision "afforded" a right to gun ownership. His claim represents a fundamental flaw in how people think about the Constitution; it is looked at as a document that "grants" the rights of people. To the contrary, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights in particular, do not "grant" rights, they merely acknowledge certain unalienable rights, endowed upon us by the Creator.
Any other approach leads to the rule of Man, who is inherently corrupt, subjecting those not in power to the whims and tyranny of those who are.
