Official Changes In A Document
The definition of a amendment is any change to the constitution of the United States Of America. Amendment 1-Congress will not make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise there of or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
How it Works !
An Amendment is any change to a important document, so each Amendment has a specific right to the people like Amendment 1 you have the freedom of speech, 2 you have the right to bear arms. If one house has 2/3 vote and the other house has a 3/4 then the law passes. Amendments can be proposed, approved, or ratified.
Example of Amendments
People have the freedom of speech, religon,press, assembly, and petition
People have the right to bear arms. ( Have and carry a gun )
No Soldier will not 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.
