Your post ignores the fact that everyone has WILLINGLY surrendered some of their individual rights for the betterment of society when they are a citizen.

You realize there are certain rights that are inherent and can't be surrendered, such as the right to life. Likewise no society can deprive me of the right to defend my life, thus they cannot rightfully deprive me of the right to keep and bear arms. If they do so then they're violating my rights.

Most intellectually mature people recognize the benefits they recieve from this agreement.

Most intellectually mature people know what rights they cannot be deprived of. Others are sheep. Baa baa buddy.
