The Right to Protect Yourself, Family and Property are Inalienable Rights.

I have written several articles law enforcement. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on Law Enforcement.

These rights are guaranteed by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. The final version of the Declaration of Independence declares: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” This document alone, gives Americans the right to protect themselves. Because these rights are so important that these rights are protected in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as well. I know I have repeated myself. I did so because we just can’t emphasize this point enough. Throughout our history corrupt and power hungry politicians have tried to strip these powers from us. It is happening right now as I write this article.

I am going to go through these documents and discuss where are rights are mentioned and protected. The main portion of the Constitution which contains seven articles is basically a blue print for the government of the United States. It does however mention individual liberties. In the Preamble of the Constitution Liberty is mentioned. “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” In Article IV Section 2: “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.”

The Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments) and subsequent amendments covers human rights. I am going to include a copy of the Bill of rights below.

AMENDMENT I

The right to self defense legislation is present in all state constitutions. Self Defense and “Stand Your Ground” The common law principle of “castle doctrine” says that individuals have the right to use reasonable force, including deadly force, to protect themselves against an intruder in their home. The right of self-defense (also called, when it applies to the defense of another, alter ego defensedefense of othersdefense of a third person) is the right for people to use reasonable force or defensive force, for the purpose of defending one’s own life (self-defense) or the lives of others, including –in certain circumstances– the use of deadly force. If a defendant uses defensive force because of a threat of deadly or grievous harm by the other person, or a reasonable perception of such harm, the defendant is said to have a “perfect self-defense” justification. If defendant uses defensive force because of such a perception, and the perception is not reasonable, the defendant may have an “imperfect self-defense” as an excuse. The rules are the same when force is used to protect another from danger. Generally, the defendant must have a reasonable belief that the third party is in a position where they have the right of self-defense. For example, a person who unknowingly chances upon two actors practicing a fight would be able to defend their restraint of the one that appeared to be the aggressor. However, in many jurisdictions a person who causes injury in defense of another may be liable to criminal and civil charges if such defense turned out to be unnecessary. There are four elements of self defense in criminal law: An individual does not have to die for the force to be deemed deadly. Four elements are required for selfdefense: (1) an unprovoked attack, (2) which threatens imminent injury or death, and (3) an objectively reasonable degree of force, used in response to (4) an objectively reasonable fear of injury or death.

John Adams said, property rights are “sacred” and without them, society devolves into “anarchy and tyranny.” This seems self-evident. Yet these constitutional rights have been systematically under attack for decades. As you can see we as citizens of the United States do have rights. However, it appears that it is every man or woman for themselves. We have to stick up for our rights. We need to fight the righteous battle. Thomas Jefferson is famous for the following quote: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” This quote can be taken several different ways. The way that addresses our current situation, is that we need to stick up and fight for our rights. We can’t let our country be taken away from us by corrupt leftist politicians, socialists and communists and special interest groups. Groups whose soul purpose is to destroy our country from within.
