In today's America I ask the Memebers here at ATS what right is not Being Infringed upon?
1st- Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
Today we have to have a permit to Protest and have speech zones which both are infringements to this right.
Then we have the government (thru hates crimes) telling the clergy that they cannot preach against certain things like Homosexual lifestyles or they
will lose tax exemptions.
If we proest we have to worry about being marked by the government and labelled as terrorists, are we free if when voicing our opinion we worry what
the government is going to do to us? Look at the NDAA.
2nd- A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and BEAR arms,shall not be
We can no longer form militias for fear of the government and the media labelling us as extremists or crazy. Look at the 90's and the afront to the
This right is infringed with all of the gun laws that are in effect, such as conceal carry, WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!!!! Not buy a firearm and
put it in a safe, unloaded. We have the right to bear ( that means to carry) firearms in any way we deem necessary to protect ourselves and our
country. Concealed or open!!!!! If the law infringes on these rights, is in and of itself un-Constitutional.
3rd- No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be
prescribed by law.
So far, to my knowledge we still have this right However the government is getting closer and closer to infringing it.
4th- The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and siezures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or Affirmation, and particulary describing the place to be searched,
and the persons or things to be siezed.
Patriot Act 1 and 2, TSA.... The rampant law eforcement raiding innocent houses and shooting their dogs...etc...
5th-No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in
cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject
for the same offence twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be
deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
When arrested we are read our rights then interrogated for hours until you tell them what they want to hear.
The imminent domain laws being abused.
6th-In ALL CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district
wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and
causeof the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have
the assistance of Counsel for his defense.
How many people are serving time based on circumstancial evidence? Also I point to the NDAA.
7th- In suits at common law, where the value in controvesy shall exceed 20 dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried
by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
You would be laugh at if your went to court and have a jury over 100 dollars.
8th-Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishment inflicted.
Tell this to George Zimmerman, IRS, FBI, ATF,etal.......
9th- The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
This article has been used to give Illegal Aliens more rights than the citizens of this great country.
10th- The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited byit to the States, are reserved to the States respectively,
or to the people.
The run amuck executive (unConstitutional) orders, Again refer to NDAA....etal.....
My point is after looking at the first 10 articles of the Bill Of RIGHTS one must ask....Do these RIGHTS still exist???? If not then how do we fix
It seems everyone has their favorite Right, but we as Americans Should defend the whole Constitution not just pick and choose. I promise the pro-gun
people will help defend the right of speech. I wish the free speecher's would help defend the rights of gun owners. Only together can we defend the
Constitution from both Foriegn and Domestic enemies.
