There was a good reason why our American ancestors failed to include an emergency exception in the Bill of Rights. It was because they knew that throughout history emergencies have been the time-honored way by which people lose their liberty.

Thus, the First Amendment does not say:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, except in cases of emergency.

The Second Amendment does not state:

A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed, except in cases of emergency.

The Fifth Amendment does not state:

No person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, except in cases of emergency.

The Sixth Amen
