America’s Bill of Rights really gives no rights to any of us

I am reading all the letters on gun issues and am constantly amazed at how little the so called “citizens” in this country know about our rights.

The Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to our Constitution, do not give any rights to anyone.

Take some time and read them carefully. They simply list and protect our God-given rights as free people and state that our elected government shall not infringe, limit, deny, abolish or modify these rights.

Citizens have no problem understanding this, those who are content being vassals and serfs do.      

Anyone who makes a statement or supports by any means the above listed actions against our Constitution and its amendments cannot in any manner be considered a citizen.

And any of our elected representatives doing so, up to and including the president, are betraying both the trust that was placed in them upon their election and the oath they took upon accepting that office.

And fellow citizens, in my opinion, this is nothing short of treason.
