The Bill of Rights is the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. I find it almost offensive that I even have to make this statement because there are Citizens that don’t know what it is. Government schools do not teach the Constitution or the history of it and the Amendments to it. The bill of rights was ratified December 15, 1791. These rights were an answer to preventing the Government abuse of its citizens and becoming tyrannical in rule. Why have the citizens allowed violations of these protections?
