Letters to the editor on gun rights, arming teachers, letting workers sit

America’s Declaration of Independence is based upon the “self-evident” truth that all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” By referring to them as “unalienable,” the founders of our liberty meant that they are natural rights distinct from legal rights. That’s an important distinction to note, because natural rights are those neither incidental to the laws of any government nor contingent upon any customs or beliefs of any particular culture.
