The idea that being an adult and a free citizen enables you to do whatever you want is a myth pushed by conservatives who haven’t gotten over the fact that they lost the civil war. We live in a country with a government. Government’s have rules. If you don’t like them then by all means change them, but stop pretending that you have the “right” to do whatever you want.
This was originally posted in a facebook debate I had with a friend about the 2nd amendment. But the point made here strikes to the core of the conservative framework of reality.
