Peenie Wallie sent me an email with his post about a draft of the Iraq “Bill of Rights”. I finally got around to reading it this morning. Yuck. It’s not a “Bill of Rights”. It’s a list of things the government must provide–such as health care. And it specifically says citizens may not own weapons except by permit.
It’s a draft. It should be scrapped. Rights are things that no government can give or take away–only infringe upon. A Bill of Rights is a written promise to not infringe upon those rights.
