This may be one of your best yet. My rights extend until they infringe on yours--that's not making my opinion the only thing that counts. Your rights extend until they infringe on mine. When you can show a violation of a right, I'll agree with you. When you try to say blacks gained the right to not be owned when govt gave it to them--i.e. made it legal--I'll disagree until I die. You don't have a right to not be offended, to "feel" safe, or to disarm others. That's not my opinion, that's fact. I don't have those either. Maybe what's at work here is your issue with the Creator Jefferson spoke of? Thus the notion that rights come from govt? Perhaps you've come to that due to elimination of the real source in your mind? Hmmm.....that would explain a lot.
