The right to self-defense is an inalienable right.
The forefathers saw fit to write into the Constitution the right to keep and bear arms for the citizenry.
Fire arms per se are not an inalienable right for police, military, or a free citizenry, but the prudential aspect of it is so obvious in our epoch, that to refuse this, refuses self-defense for many.
In the USA, there were people in all 13 Colonies that were opposed to any Federal Government implementation.
Promises were made to the citizens so that we could go forth with our Republic.
Promises that included the right to frredom of religion (not merely freedom to or of worship as ex-president Obama and others tried to pass off), free speech, a free press, the right to keep and bear arms, and other assurances written into the Constitution.
It is ALSO an inalienable right that the citizens expect the truth from people who swear to uphold this Constitution.
