The government? Or Each other?

or both?

I say, because of when it was written, and the circumstances of our independence, it was intended to prevent the GOV'T from oppressing us.

Government only. And until the late 19th century, it was just the federal government that it protected us from.

You are correct, after gaining independence from a government famous for subjugation, the founders wanted to be damn sure to LIMIT govt power.

It was written to limit government.

A lot of amendments written after it limit the people and give the .gov more power.

Government. They had just finished fighting for their independence from a tyrannical government. They wanted to make sure it didn't happen again.

The Bill of Rights limits the powers of government.  It says so in the preamble.

THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all or any of which
Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.:

ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.

The commerce clause was the big mistake.

Most of the shit the .fed has pulled is based around that shit.

ALL prior posts nail it (APPNI  )

Only Libtards think the Constitution gives the Gubmint MORE power over the People, and the States.

The proper order is People > States > Federal.

I presume statutory law protects us from each other.

It protects you from government. How you act, what you say, and how society perceives those actions are on you and society. The BOR protects you from government oppression or infringement. If you act in a way that makes private citizens or business want to alienate you, then that's on you.

It was meant to protect the people and the States from the Federal government only.

It's interesting. The Bill of Rights , doesn't really give us anything.

The Bill of Rights simply puts limits on the power of the federal govt ... the creature... yes the creature as outlined by Hamilton.

"An example THE FIRST AMENDMENT DOESN’T GRANT ANY RIGHTS TO ANYBODY. All it does is prohibit Congress from making laws restricting these activities" (the Bryan).

In other words it's the power we the people delegate to the federal Gov't.

Our rights come from God.

Unfortunately, they are not truly unaliable /inaliable either.

Judges have the power to adjudicate our rights.

In other words its to protect us from the Gov't who are "each other" but not judges.

Nothing changed in the 19th century except that the due process clause of the 5th Amendment was made applicable to the States. The courts got creative later on and made things up to serve their political interests.

Only to protect rights of government from the people. Clearly, the 2A was written so that people can't prohibit government from arming a military. Just ask four SCOTUS justices.
