It’s your right, but is it a good idea?

Just because it isn’t a good idea to exercise a right, does that mean you don’t have the right to do it? No.

This usually comes up with regards to “bearing arms“. You have the right to carry a full-auto AK-47 openly down the streets of NYC, and into a courthouse. And you would be murdered by government employees for doing so. I would argue this makes it not a good idea. But it is still within your rights.

This follows along with the right to commit suicide. Usually, I think suicide is not a good idea. But you have that right and no one can take it from you. And, I am sure other examples could be found everywhere, if one looked.

It’s not always smart to do everything you have an absolute human right to do. Not in every situation.

Why do people get confused over this?

Know what you have a right to do.
Stay within those rights.
Weigh the costs.
Be aware of circumstances.
Be smart.
Accept responsibility for your actions.

    There are one or two people who will show up to any “open carry” rally in NH with their ARs on chest slings, and dressed with, let's say, equal subtlety.

    There is a reason that MLKJ and his associated protesters dressed very well when they did their protests. They wanted to make sure that it was the establishment who showed themselves to be the thugs.
