seriously how can so many not understand that the attitude of, "If it isn't against the law, I will do as I please" is precisely what leads to laws being passed to prohibit then from "doing as they please."
I'm sorry, where is the "right to demand people not carry weapons onto your property," enumerated?

"Rights" is such a loosely used term these days.

The principals of Private Property Rights are well founded in the establishment of this Country.

Quote:
The basic concept of a property right is relatively simple: A property right gives the owner of an asset the right to the use and benefits of the asset, and the right to exclude others from them. It also, typically, gives the owner the freedom to transfer these rights to others. Roman law referred to these elements as usus (the right to use), abusus (the right to encumber or transfer), and fructus (the right to the fruits). The American jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes put it this way,
But what are the rights of ownership? They are substantially the same as those incident to possession. Within the limits prescribed by policy, the owner is allowed to exercise his natural powers over the subject matter uninterfered with, and is more or less protected in excluding other people from such interference. The owner is allowed to exclude all, and is accountable to no one but him.
Thus, property rights over an asset can be defined as a bundle of decision rights involving the asset (also called entitlements in the legal literature), which provide rights to take certain actions (“rights of access”) and to prevent others from taking certain actions (“rights of exclusion”)...
John Adams said, "The moment that the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the Laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be sacred or liberty cannot exist."

James Madison said [http://press-pubs.uchicago.edu/found...1ch16s23.html], "Government is instituted to protect property of every sort..."

William Blackstone, whose legal writings were considered as the final authority in American courts for a century-and-a-half after the adoption of the U. S. Constitution, declared: “So great moreover is the regard of the law for private property that it will not authorize the least violation of it – no, not even for the general good of the whole community” [http://press-pubs.uchicago.edu/found...v1ch16s5.html]

What Are Property Rights?

"Whether they are formal or informal, whether they apply to tangible or intangible assets, property rights consist of multiple characteristics often referred to by lawyers as a bundle of sticks, each of which represents a different aspect of property ownership. These ownership characteristics include the right to use (and so to profit from) an asset, the right to exclude others from using the asset, and the right to transfer the asset to others. In its most complete form, ownership of property grants the owner control of all the sticks as long as use does not infringe on the rights of others. The owner of a car, for example, has the right to carry friends and family in the car, as long as he or she drives it in a manner that does not endanger other drivers. Property rights allow the owner to determine the uses of the asset and to derive value from the asset. They also ensure the owner of the rights to physically transform and even destroy the asset."

"Locke’s perspective influenced Adam Smith’s work, especially The Wealth of Nations (1776), a century later. Smith built on Locke’s view that property existed within a larger system of natural rights and that the institutions of property and government were self-reinforcing."

"The authors of the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution shared Locke’s and Smith’s beliefs in the importance of private ownership. The Founding Fathers firmly believed that the human right to private property had to be protected in law as the basis for individual liberty, a free society, and a free economy. The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, for example, was aimed at protecting private property from governmental takings. Because the rule of law and constitutions guaranteed the sanctity of property in England and the United States during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, trade and commerce flourished and economies grew."

"PROPERTY RIGHTS: The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product is a slave."

Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness

Seriously, you don't understand property rights?

Where is the right to do as you wish on someone else's property enumerated?

Such a specific right is not enumerated. The right is a broad one that establishes a right to profit from and control what happens on property that they own and/or control. It is one of the cornerstones of our jurisprudence.

You probably need to clarify here. Property rights, as pointed out already, are not a loosely used term, nor are they something that's just cropped up "these days".

So is it your position that a right has to be enumerated for it to exsist? That implies that, absent the intervention of the government, there is no right.

The idea that one only has the rights that Govt. authorizes through legislation seems to be a popular one these days.

Good to see the property rights issue is now understood, finally.

I already understood that some here apparently don't like property rights.
