In 1791, Congress implemented the Bill of Rights, which outlines our basic freedoms and describes the liberties of the people. It also forbids the government to violate these rights.
The Bill of Rights contains 10 amendments. The First Amendment gives the people of the United States freedom of speech, and of the press.
The Second Amendment for the security of a free state the people have the right to keep and bear arms and shall not be infringed upon.
The above amendments were passed by our forefathers more than 200 years ago. No present or future government body, including the United Nations or our present U.S. president, can change or destroy this document. Infringed means hands off.
Late info from Washington: Inside pressure from our president to ban all assault weapons and have background checks to purchase guns and pressure cookers.
