The liberal, progressive, Marxist, Socialist, radical Left is now at war with the Bill of Rights. That’s the Constitution for the unaware.
They are at war with any amendment they don’t particularly like or see a political reason for, since ideology trumps everything. The process goes something like this:
So “make no law” means make a law, in fact, make lots of them. It means freedom for the preferred or right type of assembly, in the proper zone. It means Freedom for the correct type of press, sans James Rosen types.
It means that militia is no longer needed or necessary, and neither are guns. The “shall not be infringed” means please infringe it into nothingness.
“Due process” means whatever they decide or interpret due process is at any given time, subject to change or revisions. For example, having a Democrat in the White House could be considered due process.
It means being secure in your property and possessions against search and seizure are relative terms for the all-powerful state to decide, and is provided or bestowed on one how government chooses, subject to revocation.
Right to be “confronted by witnesses” at trial means not necessarily and, again, up to upper management. A “compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor” is not obligatory. Protection against “excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” is so yesterday. I mean times change and so do conditions.
We the big-government reserve the authority to “deny or disparage others retained by the people” whenever we declare it. Let’s just call it a Bill of Tolerances. Move along.
