Amendments 2 & 3

The 2nd amendment

Right to bear arms
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, will not be infringed.

The 2nd amendment protects society in everyday life because it provides for the citizens to act in self defense of person and home against criminal actions by outlaws and also provides a pool of armed citizens to act in defense of the nation and state


No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law´

The 3rd amendment essentially states that if the United States is not at war, then it can't make people house soldiers. If the United States is at war, it can only make people house soldiers in the way that the government has already established. More importantly, the Third Amendment demonstrates an important principle the Founders wanted to establish - that the military is not above the civilian population.
