67. Where have I either said or implied that that the Bill of Rights confers rights? I haven't.

 

Do you not realize that the Second Amendment explicitly mentions "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms" and that that right "shall not be infringed"? My point has been and continues to be that Amendment II's explicit statement that a right to bear arms exists is stronger than any non-enumerated right that might be acknowledged under Amendment IX. How can it be otherwise? Given Amendment II, arguing that there's no right at all to bear arms would go nowhere. If Amendment II didn't exist and only Amendment IX existed, such an argument might have a chance of flying.

Thank you for helping me get my post count high enough to start a discussion on my own. Now that I can do that, I'm through with you. You're my first addition to my Full Ignore List. Please reciprocate in kind.
