Free people never beg governments for fundamental rights like free speech, freedom of association, self-defense, worship and freedom to travel.
If the government gets in the way of your ability to live your life peacefully, as you see fit, in voluntary relationships with others, then it’s wrong and you’re right. Period.
Don’t sit around and wait for Congress to the state legislature to “fix” violated rights. The very essence of the government game is that legislators give you a tiny bit here while grabbing a double handful of what’s yours there. Even if you gain a victory or two, in the long run, government is a game freedom lovers can only lose.
Never, never beg or negotiate for your rights. Take them. If enough of us do, no government in the world can stand in our way.
