The BOR is nothing more than a worthless piece of paper if the concept of inalienable rights is only applicable on the federal level.
Awwww I just love these kind of arguements: Can you trust a law abiding citizen with a gun? Should gun possession only belong with the federal govt. because a private law abiding citizen might want to misuse a gun? Same thing with this lame state argument: States can't be trusted, only federal govt. can be with inalienable rights. Just what inalienable rights are found in the BOR's given to the individule? Answer: right to due process of law before their life, liberty or property can be taken....along with right to bear arms. All other inalienable rights belong to the citizens of the State to define, guard and protect.
