Overview

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution by our Founding Fathers to appease anti-Federalists who feared the loss of individual liberties once a federal government was established. Today it consists of twelve amendments that guarantee such rights as freedom of religion, speech, and the press; the right to bear arms; the right to remain innocent until proven guilty in a court of law; and the right to trial by jury. Although the Bill of Rights was designed to protect the rights of individuals, its principles are subject to constant interpretation by our courts and lawmakers.
