Constitutional question.

For some reason I was under the impression that the Bill of Rights could not be amended. But now when I try to look that up, I don't see anything on that. Could we if we chose amend the 2nd Amendment?

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    The Bill of Rights are themselves amendments, and so can be amended in the same fashion as any other change to the constitution.

    Thanks James. I have no idea where I got that in my head.

    That's what BrianD's mom said.


    (I'll have you know I had to go through the whole change password thing- and it took minutes- so that I could post this)

    We should ammend the 2nd to let me have a machine gun.

    I can see a time in our future, maybe not in our lifetime when it will be considered an anachronism, and it could honestly be amended out of the constitution.
