The First Amendment

Speech, Press, Religion, Assembly, and Petition

The First Amendment

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; 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.

Why Is Amendment 1 in action and What is it?

Amendment 1

Amendment 1 was put into place to allow people to speak and pray freely. The king would not allow anyone to speak or pray unless it was what he liked. I think that this law is great because it allows people to believe what they want. In a case that recently closed a girl threatened to kill the president on twitter. She was arrested near after then put in jail. I think that it was right to put her in jail because she could of actually hurt the president.

The Second Amendment

Amendment 2

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.

My opinion

The Second amendment allows weapons to be owned by anyone. It is being overused. One of the very recent cases where this amendment is being tested is Sandy Hook's incident. The man who killed those people had military grade weapons and armor. As a result of this incident California has made the legal limit for a pistol magazine 7 shots. This is not the right decision because all of the criminals already own these military grade weapons and armor
