Negative Rights/ The Bill of Rights

Today Thom was talking about the bill of rights as negative rights, to limit what the gov. can do. I am assuming he means all ten of them? I couldn't agree more.

So why is it so hard for him to accept the rights of people to own guns as a fundamental concept. I truley believe that the placement of this amendment tells us all we need to know about the Founders intention.
