Weston Minot | Can new laws infringe the rights of the law-abiding?
1. Rights of “law-abiding citizens” are defined by whatever law lawmakers make.
2. Those rights are newly defined when lawmakers make new laws.
3. Therefore, since rights are redefined by new laws, it is impossible for any new laws to infringe the rights of “law-abiding citizens”.
New laws cannot infringe the rights of the “law-abiding”, because those rights become whatever the new laws say they are.
When being a “law-abiding citizen” becomes unconscionable, do you choose law or conscience?
