How to Get New Rights

Judge Antonin Scalia tells how to get new rights and privileges (hint: it isn’t through judicial activism or otherwise rewriting the Constitution).
From UDaily (University of Deleware):

“The way out is the way out we’ve had for most of our history: The Constitution means what it says. You figure out what it was understood to mean when it was adopted and that’s the end of it,” Scalia said. “If you want more rights, create them by statute, if you want more constitutional rights, create them by amending the Constitution.”
