    Scary, but it won’t make it past the Senate. Still, the communists keep trying.

    That is because people don't understand how the BORs works together and that each right is supported by the others. In fact, our education system has done a good job of teaching people that natural rights don't exist, only those rights granted by the government. Because of this a larger percentage of our citizens see no problem with trying to nullify those rights that they don't agree with (totally missing that to try to suppress a natural right is tyranny, the same thing they say they hate).
