JimDandy, if the government has to approve a right, it is not a right.
The onus should be on government, in each specific case, to come in and prove that the right should be restricted or revoked.
You are happy giving government blanket authority to determine who gets to exercise a right via the "Mother May I?" method.
I am not. Many others are not.
Basically, your system turns rights into privileges. Please own that, if you wish to continue arguing for your checks. You can't have it both ways, that you think it's a right, but that it should require checks.
