YOU could not be more wrong!
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights DO NOT GRANT ANY RIGHTS!!
The Preamble to The Bill of Rights
Congress of the United States
begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
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 ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.
ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.
"...further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added..."
The RIGHTS enumerated in the Bill of Rights pre-existed the Constitution and the BOR BEFORE they were written down. The rights are enumerated, or "declared" and additional "restrictions" placed on the gov't as indicated in the BOR preamble.
Your comment.."The Constitution grants American citizens the right to bear arms, no doubt,..."...is simple ignorance.
