“A right needs no permission.” Really? Try holding a parade—exercise of 1st Amen--at rush hour in any major city, or shouting “fire”—exercise of 1st Amen—in a crowded theater. Or, more relevantly, one can get married without a state’s permission, as in common law states or as the Supreme Ct has ruled, one cannot otherwise be denied the right to marriage. In fact, that’s what the whole argument is about.
A legal scholar you are not.
