"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Second Amendment is only a sentence long. However, it is an amendment that most people use. The 2nd amendment states that people have the right to bear Arms which means people are allowed to carry weapons for self-defense.

The Deeper Meaning of the 4th Amendment

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” The 4th amendment is the amendment that protects people from being searched or having possessions taken from them without any good reason. Which means before the government or any official body tries to search you they must have a good reason to do so. As well as, if a police officer wants to search and arrest someone they must get the approval of a judge and have evidence to back up why he or she should do so. In Conclusion, the 4th amendment is a right every U.S. Citizen should have to secure ones privacy.
