“Each state upon acceptance into the Union agrees to abide by the U.S.Constitution. That includes the God given rights listed in the Bill of Rights. So, yes the states HAVE to abide by the U.S. Constitution.
The States Rights issue does not include any of the Bill Of Rights!”
Read the preamble of the so called “bill of rights” they were instituted to protect the people and their States from the Federal Goverment not the people and their states from themselves.
To assume otherwise is not only historic blasphemy its dangerously develing into the domain of Federal imposition which of course never end. You should know from our own history the minute the Feds started seeing the BOR as imposition on the States that opened the door for every evil from banning religion to roe vs. wade.
No, if the people of New York want to be disarmed pawns of their goverment that is their business. It makes no sense for any people any where to ratify a federal Constitution to protect to restrict their domestic freedom.
We have separate State Constitutions which are just as good & binding to protect us from our State, and we don’t have to compromise that with people living a 1000 miles away. Best of all if something does goes horribly wrong we can vote as individuals with our feet.
There is no rational, nor benefit to having the Federal Goverment dictate to our States anything beyond letting us leave to other states.
Sorry that you are so confused, but the Bill of Rights are just acknowledging our God Given Rights and are not being conferred upon the people or states. What God has given us, the states or Feds cannot restrict.
Thanks for playing, but you are wrong. The Bill Of Rights applies to the States as well as the Federal Government!!
I have a God given right to bear arms and the states nor the Federal govenment are not allowed to infringe on that right.
