The Bill of Rights affords people certain rights that the U.S. Constitution didn't originally outline. The Ninth Amendment guarantees the protection of rights not enumerated in the Bill of Rights. It would be difficult to write a document that protected every single American right, so this amendment protects all those rights left unsaid. The Tenth Amendment defines the relationship between the federal and state government, a concept known as federalism. This amendment aims to solve the issues of federal powers and regulations. -- Provided by publisher
