117. And so you choose not to own one, which is your right.

I choose to own them, which is my right.

Your neighbor does not have to understand or agree with your choice to drink alcohol, or use contraception, or have an abortion, or marry your same-sex partner, or watch movies James Dobson disapproves of, or ____, in order for you to exercise your right to choose on those issues; a right means you have the authority to choose for yourself.

There are time/place/manner restrictions on all rights, but such restrictions must be based on strict scrutiny. For example, we require that if you get drunk, you can't get behind the wheel of a car in public---or carry a gun in public, for that matter---but we don't ban alcohol or ban all beverages over 10% alcohol; we just limit its use to adults and set penalties for its misuse.
