Yep, sure does. Do you want to tell me what it says in the other nine?
The first Congress sent out 12 amendments to the states to ratify. One would have applied the BOR to the states. It was not ratified.
You want to back that up with proof?
In Barron v. Baltimore John Marshall told us what was obvious to all constitutional scholars: the BOR does not apply to the states.
Wouldn't be the first time a SC Justice was wrong.
I checked it out, my memory was wrong on that, I correct the record here and admit my mistake. The non ratified amendment had to do with apportionment. But see Barron v. Baltimore, 1833, for established precedent on the original intent of the BOR
