In he and Ardern’s press release, Nash is quoted as stating, “Owning a gun is a privilege, not a right.” This is incorrect. The right to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and is therefore inherent to all people and not dependent upon a government for its existence. Governments may fail to recognize the right, but have no power to eliminate it.Of course, Nash, who is one of New Zealand's elite, thinks the way he does because he is allowed to possess a gun. But how would he look at peoples' rights if he were one of the "commoners?" He wants to treat the people who pay his salary as peasants, who are only allowed to have a gun for self defense if they are good little boys and girls and toe the elite's line.
Nash is wrong. The right to defend oneself is granted to all human beings by Our Creator. Further, he is wrong because the people he wants to disarm are the people who pay his salary. Would the master of a house be less well armed than his servant? Such a master would be a fool!
