Letters to The Ethical Spectacle
Spectacle Letters Column Guidelines. Send your comments to me at email@example.com.
I will assume the letter is for publication. If it is not, please tell me, and I will respect that.
I have gotten into the habit of leaving out full names and email addresses; I have had too
many people think better of something they said fifteen years ago. If you want your name and email
included, let me know. Flames, however, will be published with full name and email address.
I happen to be reading this article about the Second Amendment
and figured I would comment. My own view is that governments don't and cannot give rights, all of our rights are
inalienable. The second amendment also does give people the right to bear arms. It states that the right
to bear arms must not be infringed. Our right to bear arms is inalienable.
I referred Nick to an essay of mine from 2000 of which I am rather proud,
Natural Rights Don't Exist.
