A right is a just claim or title, whether legal, prescriptive, or moral. Political rights include those enumerated in the Bill of Rights, such as the right to bear arms, and freedom of speech.
"A citizen may not be required to offer a good and substantial reason why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right's existence is all the reason he needs." -- Judge Benson E. Legg
