A recent letter-writer implied that the right to bear arms was God-given. I was not aware that God helped write the Bill of Rights. I learned it was written by a group of white men who also believed slavery was a good idea and that women were not capable of thinking as clearly as men and therefore shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Fortunately, this group of men realized that they were prone to error or at least unable to forecast the future. They provided a method to correct and/or improve their work. Amendments are a pretty good way to keep the U.S. Constitution evolving with current times and issues.
Unfortunately, it took nearly 75 years to correct the slavery issue (the 13th Amendment) and 129 years for women to gain the right to vote (the 19th Amendment). Perhaps we are still evolving and learning and developing as a nation. Our founding fathers would expect no less.
