Read Article IX of the United States Bill of Rights:

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

What is the main effect of setting the phrase of certain rights off with commas following the introductory phrase the enumeration of the Constitution?


It emphasizes the rights are what should not be misconstrued.
It emphasizes the rights belong to the people not the Constitution.
It suggests that some rights are more important than others.

I am thinking it is the third one. Any thoughts.
