Declaratory and Restrictive…

I have seen several on the Left calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment in response to Arizona.

Of course, the first ten amendments are immune to the Amendment process.

What most people were never taught, and our Masters never want you to learn, is that the Bill of Rights has a preamble.  The important phrase that makes repeal of the first 10 amendments impossible is in this paragraph: THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution

Declaratory and Restrictive are exactly that: They are Declarations of Restrictions upon the Government.

If the Government may not infringe 2A, how can it be repealed?  If Government did not grant permission to bear arms, or speak freely, how can it take them away?

Article V is, therefore, explicitly not available to Government as regards the Bill of Rights, for if Government may not infringe, how can the State Legislatures even vote on 1A – 10A?

The Bill of Rights is sacred, and was deliberately placed beyond the reach of Government to meddle.

Of course, they do meddle, to the point that many of us feel the Right of Revolution is again near.  But that is another issue.  The simple reality is that if one reads the preamble to the Bill of Rights, it is obvious that the Article V process for modifying/repealing the Bill of Rights simply does not obtain.

So-called Constitutional experts will disagree, and for them I refer you to Article III, Section III: Treason.
