I think I agree with some of the others here that it is up to me to discrimate how I use that which I am entitled to own. I am allowed to own my arm. If I hit you in the nose with it, that is separate. Then the question becomes whether or not it was within my rights to do so. I agree that it is hard to avoid trampling someone else's rights with a nuclear weapon. Yet, many people own them. Are they my master?
