    So, the question is this: can any inherent right (as opposed to positive rights) actually be demonstrated to resist?

    no that would be un-American...The American way is to grab a handful of automatic weapons and have a good ol shoot out until the cops kill you...

    Except almost no crimes are committed with, nor murders committed with , fully automatic weapons in the US.

    30,000 people in the US die from guns every year. You can thank the NRA for that.

    Do you blame the even greater number of deaths by car on AAA? And deaths by knives? Hanging? Drowning?

    People don't buy cars to run people over, that's called an accident. I seriously doubt that there were 30,000 accidental deaths by gunfire, lol. Just look at any other country where guns are heavily restricted like Canada or the UK and together they both total less than 500 per year probably.

    There were 12,000 homicides by guns in the US in 2004 (another thread I read recently).

    Where I come from there were about 10 homicides from guns....per head of population we need about 180 deaths down here. IOW, I'm 1800 percent more likely to die in the US from a gun...yay!
