Right to bear arms, perhaps something smaller?

People should be able to defend themselves. But the cost of this may be more damaging than the protection it provides - you're far more likely to shoot someone you know than an intruder with a handgun and all that. What if, instead of the simplistic "Just ban all guns" rhetoric, we did a trade off? You have the right to defend yourself - just with something far less likely to be lethal.

Then its not a right at all, its a privilege, and they can be revoked! The right to life, a natural, above government,moral sanction all human beings have is also the right to defend that life! If I ,or anyone else wish to possess the means to defend myself or others from attack thats the end of the story and no one elses business.
