“Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it’s not an individual right or that it’s too much of a public safety hazard, don’t see the danger in the big picture. They’re courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don’t like.” –

The Supreme Court has already ruled, rightly so, that “The People” in the referenced in the 2A are the same “people” referenced in the first, forth, ninth or tenth amendments. The intent of the Bill of Rights was to help secure the rights of the people from government. How blessed we are that they had the foresight to add these inalienable to REMIND GOVERNMENT they have limits. Now if we can only remind 50% of the US population who think government can do whatever they want.
Very true, as an astute someone once well said- ‘the government that can give you anything, can also take away anything’.
The Bill of Rights, as I understand them, are the Rights of ordinary citizens that are inalienable, basically coming from God. The gov is instituted to “Protect” those rights. That and the powers listed in Article 1 Section 8 are the only powers the gov can “legally” engage in while protecting those rights. The Supreme Court is engaged to say yea /nay to laws that come up that may or may not restrict those rights.
In short, if it ain’t listed in the Constitution, or allowed under the restrictions of the Constitution, bugger off and leave me alone…….
