The rights of the Bill Of Rights is important because it says people are important
The Bill of Rights is important because it secures all citizen's freedom, thus preventing the government from infringing upon our rights.
The rights of the Bill Of Rights is important because it says people are important
the bill of rights protects the rights of the people, such of freedom of speech, press, assembly, and other things, and overall protects your freedom.
