Government versus natural rights?

Although the Judge is talking about the right to bear arms (2nd Amendment to the US Constitution), his last two paragraphs ring true to many of the issues we raise about government's sometimes, often times, over-reach.

Most people in government reject natural rights and personal sovereignty. Most people in government believe that the exercise of everyone’s rights is subject to the will of those in the government. Most people in government believe that they can write any law and regulate any behavior, not subject to the natural law, not subject to the sovereignty of individuals, not cognizant of history’s tyrants, but subject only to what they can get away with.

Did you empower the government to impair the freedom of us all because of the mania and terror of a few?
