This is what most foreigners don't understand about the USA. The US constitution was written and Bill of Rights also, to acknowlege inalienable peoples rights and to protect the people from THEIR OWN government by LIMITING Federal powers. This is why I have the right protect my own life and my families life with a .45 calibre pistol and you don't.
