What's unalienable cannot be taken away or denied. Its most famous use is in the Declaration of Independence, which says people have unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
To find the origins of the word unalienable, we can look at the root, alien, which comes from the Latin alienus, meaning "of or belonging to another." This provides the basis for our word, with the prefix un- providing the turnaround "not," and the suffix -able providing the idea of capability. Therefore, we get “not able to be denied.” Oh, and if you are wondering about the common argument as to whether it is "unalienable" or "inalienable," either is correct.


Who has the right to try and take this right from us?
I think it's misleading when those on the left try to describe how and when to use a gun or what they believe a magazine is used.....

"Get a shotgun and blast it through the door".......

The latest .........seems to me the ones who want marijuana legal would like to take away the guns, why is this???

Asked how a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds would be effective in reducing gun violence, DeGette said:
“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those know they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”
What she didn’t appear to understand is that a magazine can be reloaded with more bullets. According to the Shooter’s Log, only early on were magazines for AR-15s designed to be disposable, but the military changed that and now magazines are used several times. In handguns, a magazine is designed to be reused hundreds of times.
Rep. Diana DeGette appears not to understand how guns work

You choice was you choice. I'm sure some Americans said the same thing when fully automatic weapons they purchased stock were banned.

If this is how you choose to defend yourself so be it, it is your choice.

Do you happen to have these or one of these ready in case of a home invasion?
