Odds are when you were in Public School you were not taught the definition of this very important word.
So here we go:
Not subject to sale or transfer; inseparable.
That which is inalienable cannot be bought, sold, or transferred from one individual to another. The personal rights to life and liberty guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States are inalienable. Similarly, various types of property are inalienable, such as rivers, streams, and highways.

I beg your pardon Justice Stevens, only as I’m polite, but the Second Amendment which is actually the Second Inalienable Right as listed in the Bill of Rights cannot be “Repealed”. The only reason it appears as an Amendment to the Constitution is for recording purposes. As you should know, Sir, there was a vociferous debate regarding the placement of them as Amendments rather than leaving them as a stand alone document for the very reason we are dealing with such idiocy today. Many of the Founding Fathers knew that the remaining Monarchists (about 30% of the population), most of whom had surrendered to the inevitable and thrown in with the ‘Federalists’, would continue to try to position these Inalienable Rights as Amendable by Man. The idea of one’s right being given to them by other men is the tenent of Monarchy as it is the foundation of Socialism/Communism. Without one man being able to force another man to do what he wants there would be no governing paradigm resembling the above. It is always about force, Mr. Stevens. Our Freedom rests on being able to resist it.
This is exactly why Free Speech and an Armed Populace is integral to a Free Society.
The Bill of Rights was debated down to its simplest form so Every Man could understand it, rich and Poor alike. Simple, Powerful and Direct. The Bill of Rights is the Maxim for Human Freedom.
It has been proven over and over throughout history and continues to be illustrated around the World.
The absence of an armed population, given enough time, always ends in Tyranny. We do not need to repeat the errors of the past which has demonstrably resulted in Oppression, Death and Destruction of Human life.
We should be past that here in the United States.
But, Mr. Stevens, thank you for your input. It’s important for us to remember that people like you still exist… and always will. It’s also important for all of us to recognize that such an oppressive mindset can rise to the highest levels of our government. We need to be vigilant and more careful.
