Yes, the Bill of Rights "clarifies" the Constitution. It does not "clarify" the Declaration of Independence.
Two different documents, each with a separate and distinct purpose, written 11 years apart.
I think we are discussing two different things. I am not debating the chronology of the documents, nor am I trying to apply the Bill of Rights as an ammendment to the Declaration. What I am attempting to state is that the founding documents, Declaration of Independence, Articles of the Confereration, Constitution, Bill of Rights, are all one in the same in ideology and thus support/reinforce each other. Regardless of the intent/purpose for which they were written, there is a unity in the documents and that is one of ideology. That ideology is that there are natural/inalienable rights that no government may take away from the individual. In their own way they may attempt to acknowledge, legislate, protect/defend or define this ideology, but nonetheless, they are all based on natural rights. The second ammendment is thus an inalienable right.
