There are other possible sources, but I was suggesting the Magna Carta as the one that you are most likely to have seen.


Gotcha, you are correct, but I was actually referring to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights as SmagBoy was trying to say that the English bill of rights did not have much influence on them. But all of the things I listed can be found in both documents with direct parallels.

I do realize that the founding fathers of course did draw from many sources, not just the English Bill or Rights when drafting these documents, and were well versed in law, philosophy and religious thought. Which was my point from the beginning, that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were not haphazardly put together, nor where they pandering to the views of certain interests.

Not sure if you are asking a question about what we are referring to or questioning the date [..]


Neither. I was suggesting a possible answer to your question, the question I quoted when replying to it:

[quote]I wonder where I have seen these subjects before?[/quote]

Although strictly speaking that's not a question (it`s a statement that you are wondering about it), you phrased it as one (the question mark) so I took it as one.

There are other possible sources, but I was suggesting the Magna Carta as the one that you are most likely to have seen.

@Angilion

"The Magna Carta (1215, England)?"

Not sure if you are asking a question about what we are referring to or questioning the date, But the English Bill of Rights of 1689 says:

That the Freedome of Speech and Debates or Proceedings in Parlyament ought not to be impeached or questioned in any Court or Place out of Parlyament.

Interesting spin. So the pro-gun side says that gun control has racist roots. (In the south, yes.) Now the anti-gun lobby says the 2nd amendment has racist roots. I call bullpoo.
