    We only have privileges in this country, granted to us by government overlords. The concept of inalienable human rights is long dead.

    You're right, of course; consider here, where I moved a few months ago: While licensed in several states for years, I had to wait 90 days before I could even apply for the king's permission to defend myself and my family.
    During that time, I was told, by my state representative that " you can open carry".
    I said, "Thanks".

    At least you can get one. We can't (yet).

    Open carrying costs nothing. Not that that's legal everywhere either of course.

    state laws are enacted by politicians people from that state elect.

    the fix is simple enough, the effort however isnt.

    Most freedoms are regulated, and not absolute. Most of them can be abused to the point that you are getting in the way of other peoples rights.

    Anarchy is complete freedom, and it is not the way to go. It doesn't last long.

    Most "freedoms" are heavily regulated to the point of absurdity, such that they become privileges granted by the state, and no longer freedoms. All by design.

    You don't need a permit to own a gun.

    You have to get government permission to buy one from a dealer.

    It all really depends on what you want to do. I make a good living, get to travel and have a relatively good time with friends, family and neighbors. I own several guns, even a big black scary one, and I can reload my own ammo. I don't have a burning desire to spread mayonnaise all over my body and run through a grocery store with a basket of squirrels, but I think if I don't make a mess, and all my special parts are covered, I could do that too.

    Yeah, I think people should be able to buy raw milk without the feds getting involved, I'd change a lot of things, but for the most part, they are minor tweaks. We live in one of the most free countries in history, and all in all, the best place to be at the moment. Sure, we should make it better, but there is no reason to pretend that we live in an oppressive regime. I got to travel to East Berlin, when it still was East Berlin, quite a few times. Trust me, we could be a lot worse off than we are now.
