At least two constitutional rights are subject to revocation during a state of emergency:
With all due respect to the point with regard to the structure of the law, it is impossible for any constitutional right to ever be suspended by law.
It takes the constitution to outweigh the constitution.
If a federal official attempts to deny you a constitutional right, then it is your duty as an American to exercise your second amendment right to bear
arms against that official.
I know the government might think it can suspend constitutional rights, and the courts may agree, but that's not the social contract upon which this
nation was founded, the constitution is. And there's a long and proud tradition of Americans shooting people who threaten that.
And even setting the law aside, there's the simple matter of government by consent of the governed. If the people do not consent and the government
will not relent, a defacto state of revolution exists, and again, the government is liable to get shot at in that case, laws be damned.
edited to clarify that this was a response to quoted external material.
