Thoughts on The Bill of Rights

By Michael Gay. April 27th, 2018

There is a move afoot wanting to repeal the second amendment to the constitution. In the excellent little book “Mitzvah” Aaron Zelman and L. Neil Smith observed that it is an elementary exercise in logic to see that eliminating the Bill of Rights, or any portion thereof de-ratifies the Constitution, which is the basis of the government in which the “repeal” of the second amendment would be taking place. This would be a logical impossibility and illegal.

However, we must question if this would bother anyone in government considering what has happened to other portions of the Bill of Rights in the past several years, and indeed over the past few decades.

Just to be sure that this is understood, the Bill of Rights does not grant anyone any rights. The rights contained therein are the unalienable rights illuminated in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by there Creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” These rights so illuminated are then enumerated in the Bill of Rights. .......

The Bill of Rights is frequently misinterpreted as well as being all too often seemingly ignored judging by various governmental decisions that have occurred. Perhaps the insidious erosion of the Second Amendment through ''gun control'' is one very obvious infringement, but also the attacks on the first amendment are becoming dangerously apparent. You must know your rights, and defend them.
