The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances.” – Ex parte Milligan, U.S. Supreme Court (1866)
“The government has no authority to dictate how many people choose to congregate for any peaceful purpose.
Our First Amendment states:
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.
Telling people to not attend church is a violation of the constitutional clause, “prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Telling people they cannot gather in groups of more than 20 or 30 (or whatever arbitrary number) is a clear violation of the constitutional clause, “no law . . . prohibiting . . . the right of the people peaceably to assemble.”
The coronavirus or any other “emergency” does NOT cancel or negate the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”Source
