The Constitution giving us our rights?

There is a petition up on requesting that the White House website correct its language concerning the source of our inalienable rights:

Recognize that the government does not "give citizens the right to bear arms".

The petition further states, "This is exactly wrong and contradicts the very nature of unalienable rights, the clear intent of the Founders and the understanding of the right as articulated by the Supreme Court."

I was alerted to this by AZCDL and thought it would be worth passing along, given how popular the idea of our rights being "granted" as opposed in innate is.


I tried to sign the petition but keep getting an error message.

An AJAX HTTP error occurred.

Government service at its best, I suppose. It worked when I loaded it just now.


Cool I just checked back and it worked. Done and done.
