49. Okay. Natural law (or rights) stems from a philosophical tradition and is based on nothing

other than that. Like any other religion or superstition it has no basis in fact and cannot be proven to be valid.

If something can be taken from you that thing is granted to you by the authority that can take it away. Gun rights can be taken from you for committing a felony, having a restraining order or for being adjudicated mentally unfit. Therefore the governing agencies in these instances grant you the right to own guns. They also define what kinds of guns you can have or, for that matter, any other means of self defense, i.e. large knives, nun-chucks etc.

You can *claim* natural law but I can reject that claim as fatuous.

All that aside just embrace the fact that no right is unlimited.
