As opposed to the government, which did have that power?The people didn't have it in the first place for it to be taken from them.
Rights are not given to the people by the government. Our laws do not work so that any rights not given to the people expressly, or powers given to the feds, are given to the state by default.It was never given to the people or the fed, that's why it was given to the state.
The fed govt. has express powers. The states do not. That does not mean states can now decide everything.
