    This sounds like the beginning of a partisan rant.

    There have been a myriad of people posting to this hypothetical discussion and I can't say that I've seen anyone mention right or left.

    Until you posted.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Would You Resist Federal Confiscation?OK, now some consequences have been issued. Next one to bait with partisan idiocy, or to make a personal attack is off the thread. At the least.

    Amend the constitution just cause it makes peeps uneasy? How about you first LEARN something about it and get back to me!

    All these people that want a warm fuzzy? I wish but it will not happen and changing the constitution is not the answer.

Would you still consider it right to resist something that so much of the country wanted to happen?
    Think about what you are saying here. Put it in the context of one of the other amendments in the Bill of Rights.

    Or think about how you feel when, say, a Christian is persecuted in a Muslim country. The vast majority of the Muslims in said country might popularly support the persecution of the Christian, and there may be no legal protections for the Christian in that country. And yet, I believe a right has been violated. The same with how some Christians in this country want non-Christian religions treated here.

    Now, if rights really are simply things that can be eliminated by supermajorities, then no right has been violated in the described country. In my view, this really means there is no such things as "rights". All that really exists is, in some countries, are laws that are especially difficult to change.
