    that would be stealing .....to take property, which does not belong to you from another.

    if two people claim the same property, that is a matter for ....judicial action, one reason we have governments.

    No, because it's my property and by someone else peeing in my yard they are acting aggressively towards my property.

    I mean do you feel the right to say to your neighbor that he may not operate a business without your permission, and then if he disobeys you to violate his person or property.

    I love when people fail to defend anti-discrimination laws they run to the idea that the government created the right to property. That is like claiming they created your body, your facilities and your labor. lol.

    No doubt. I don't need a reason to remove someone from my property. I do however need a reason to consider something in violation of my property rights.
