Just What Are Our Rights?

In a comment on the Gay Horse thread, Anonemouse links to the Bill of Rights. Now I know that some of the anti-speed camera lobby are giving this clause a go:-
And several grants and promises made of fines and forfeitures before any conviction or judgment against the persons upon whom the same were to be levied;
All which are utterly and directly contrary to the known laws and statutes and freedom of this realm;
and I shall be interested to see how they get on.

I haven't, however, seen anyone lobbying to get this one enforced:-
That the subjects which are Protestants may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law
