I got this image from Occupy Posters on Facebook. When I first saw it, I was slightly bothered by the obvious ‘gimme, gimme’ handout attitude.
According to their Facebook page:
Occupy Posters –NameRemoved – The issue is *status in law*. A “privilege” and a “right” in law have different statuses. Courts view a “right,” and rational state abridgements of a right with much stricter scrutiny than something encoded in to law as a “privilege.” In law, obtaining post-secondary education in the U.S. is a privilege whereas obtaining a gun is a right. That’s askew to say the least. Does that help?
