    mostly they want to protect themselves from liberal govt!

    George Washington's address to the second session of the First U.S. Congress:

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty, teeth and keystone under independence. The church, the plow, the prairie wagon and citizens' firearms are indelibly related. From the hour the pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that, to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. Every corner of this land knows firearms, and more than 99 and 99/100 percent of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil influence. They deserve a place of honor with all that's good. When firearms go, all goes. We need them every hour."

    Really? I thought all liberals were vicious and intolerant. Surely that means they'll nuke conservatives in a heartbeat. You'll be longing for the days when they were just disturbing the lunches of GOP politicians.

    How could they nuke conservatives without also nuking liberals at the same time? Yes liberals are violent. Look at their verbal violence here and their street violence every night on the news!! Liberals know they are not suited to democracy, but rather to violence

    They would nuke them because they are so violent they won't care about nuking liberals along with conservatives. The other day at the free trade coffee shop a liberal almost threw a hot free trade Jamaican coffee latte supremo at me because I ate the last organic Welsh scone. That kind of anger can easily take you to the genocidal level of violence, and that's every single liberal because we all know it's not possible for their to be a wide spectrum of liberals out there. I know for a fact every Trump supporter is a bigot because of what happened in Charlottesville because of that very same logic.

    Really? I suspect it was much broader than that, but I don't think your binary logic will allow exploration of that possibility. I'll add this to the list of inane responses. It might be up there with slavery ending when the US was founded; that one still makes me chuckle.

Anyway, that being said the purpose of the Bill Of Rights was to prohibit the government from restricting the rights it mentions and if it were to do so than the government would have too much authority. Simply put, the government does not have the authority to infringe on the rights listed in the Bill Of Rights and its not supposed to. That is why, unlike the rest of the Constitution, the Bill Of Rights or any part of it can't be repealed and is scribed in stone. To repeal or change it would give the government too much authority and would thus result in a corrupt government. That is why the Bill Of Rights has to be respected and kept the way it is. For the government to infringe on any of the rights in the Bill Of Rights in doing so the government would be crossing a line it has no right to cross.
    there is currently no evidence that the bill of rights was written before 1950

    why broader when liberal govt was the source of evil in human history and when liberals always want more liberal govt. Note the progression from Hillary to Sanders! 1+1=2
