Can somebody explain to me in laymens terms what this means? We were just looking at the Bill of Rights and this one was confusing.

|The 9th Amendment is simply a statement that other rights aside from those listed may exist, and just because they are not listed doesn't mean they can be violated.
The 10th Amendment is the subject of some debate, but essentially it states that any power not granted to the federal government belongs to the states or to the people.
I'm a big fan of the 10th Amendment, it's a shame the federal government doesn't recognize it.
