Anyway "getting" rights is an incorrect way of stating it. If you are human, you are born with rights. Smiley


I'm not Human. I'm Vulcan.

If you think that means you can shoot me, go ahead.

If I don't have rights (or if I only have rights because I say a certain thing) then I prefer to die.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Why would I shoot you just because you aren't human? I have no intention of shooting your cat either. Smiley

I don't care if you will shoot me. I care if you permissibly can shoot me.

If you can permissibly shoot me because I have no rights, then I don't want to live, and as I've already agreed, because you seem so set on it, I'll just do it myself.

I can't even permissibly shoot your cat, not that I'd want to...
