The bill of rights is the rights of the people as individuals. It is not a group thing. Read every item one by one. You will see that it cannot be divided into groups such as a militia, a particular religion, a particular newspaper.

True. A right MUST be possessed by an individual before it can be possessed by the collective society.

Nor can a 'collective' right exceed rights as possessed by an individual.

"When rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them."
Miranda ~vs~ Arizona, 384 US 436 p. 491.

-------------------------------------------

"An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed."
Norton ~vs~ Shelby County, 118 US 425 p. 442.

-------------------------------------------

"The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment, not merely from the date of the decision branding it? No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it."
6 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177, late 2d, Sec 256.
