Would somebody please describe what acting like a free people is?
Per your request - to act in such a way as to be able to pursuit happiness in ways that may be contrary to the will of the majority but not trespassing on the rights of others.
To be able to carry arms openly and publicly because it is your right and its not subject the good will of others.
To be able to engage in activities without every little possibility dictated by law. Heaven forbid any part of life is unregulated....
