    I have the moral right to do anything that doesn't harm anyone else. Owning a firearm, or multiple firearms, harms no one. Yes, I have the moral right to own a firearm, or multiple firearms, if I so choose.

    I don't think you mean moral right: Moral rights are rights of creators of copyrighted works generally recognized in civil law jurisdictions and, to a lesser extent, in some common law jurisdictions. [Dictionary]

    I think you mean natural rights, there is one list of these:

    Article 1 Right to Equality

    Article 2 Freedom from Discrimination

    Article 3 Right to Life, Liberty, Personal Security

    Article 4 Freedom from Slavery

    Article 5 Freedom from Torture and Degrading Treatment

    Article 6 Right to Recognition as a Person before the Law

    Article 7 Right to Equality before the Law

    Article 8 Right to Remedy by Competent Tribunal

    Article 9 Freedom from Arbitrary Arrest and Exile

    Article 10 Right to Fair Public Hearing

    Article 11 Right to be Considered Innocent until Proven Guilty

    Article 12 Freedom from Interference with Privacy, Family, Home and Correspondence

    Article 13 Right to Free Movement in and out of the Country

    Article 14 Right to Asylum in other Countries from Persecution

    Article 15 Right to a Nationality and the Freedom to Change It

    Article 16 Right to Marriage and Family

    Article 17 Right to Own Property

    Article 18 Freedom of Belief and Religion

    Article 19 Freedom of Opinion and Information

    Article 20 Right of Peaceful Assembly and Association

    Article 21 Right to Participate in Government and in Free Elections

    Article 22 Right to Social Security

    Article 23 Right to Desirable Work and to Join Trade Unions

    Article 24 Right to Rest and Leisure

    Article 25 Right to Adequate Living Standard

    Article 26 Right to Education

    Article 27 Right to Participate in the Cultural Life of Community

    Article 28 Right to a Social Order that Articulates this Document

    Article 29 Community Duties Essential to Free and Full Development

    Article 30 Freedom from State or Personal Interference in the above Rights [U. of Minnesota, see source.]

    So at least one source considers ownership [Art 7] and security [Art 3] as natural rights. So one can argue that gun ownership for personal security reasons is a natural right.

    Note there are other lists, but they are all pretty much alike. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are typically included in the natural rights lists for example.

    A moral right by what authority? If you're asking if I find gun ownership sinful, I'd say no, unless it were against some law of the land.

    Yes. Defending yourself and your family is moral and having a gun is a good way to be able to do that. What is you thought about having a moral right to get an abortion?

      Having a jet propelled rocket launcher is a better way to protect yourself. Or a tank.

  • 7 months ago

    Yes... I consider being able to protect myself, my loved ones, and other innocents in trouble to be a MORAL right.

      I claim my moral right to own a personal M1 Abrams tank in that case.

  • 7 months ago

    That makes no sense. Please define what you mean by "moral right". The only thing I find is the right an originator of a work of literature or art has over the use of their work.

    Protecting your family is the highest form of morality

      An M1 Abrams tank with armour piercing shells for each and everyone is a higher form of morality.

  • 7 months ago

    Yes. Clearly the founding fathers considered the right to be inalienable.

      18th century morals are identical to 21st century morals? I think not.
