Freedom of Religion
The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights has 5 parts...
Freedom of Religion
Freedom of Speech
Freedom of the Press
Freedom of Assembly
Freedom of Petition
The second amendment allows people to keep and use weapons without breaking the law.It can be used for protection of the government. It also says a militia is necessary to the safety of the people.
It is that second attribute of Second Amendment supporters that has surprised the president and his allies. The Obama administration has attempted to demonize the NRA and cow gun owners into accepting restrictions that they know won't make anyone safer but which will interfere with a citizen's ability to acquire, keep and rely on firearms to protect their families or participate in the shooting sports. Among those proposals are "universal" background checks that will never be "universal" because criminals won't submit to them, and magazine bans that will put the law-abiding at a disadvantage against multiple attackers. The president also backs a new ban on "assault weapons," even though Christopher Koper, the researcher who studied the last ban for the Justice Department concluded that it caused "no discernible reduction in the lethality or injuriousness of gun violence" and did not contribute to the general drop in crime in the 1990s. But gun owners have been energized rather than cowed. They are presenting a truly united front as they rally to fight for their constitutionally guaranteed rights.
The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to the US constitution. The Bill of Rights protects human rights as well as individual rights. Many people feared the idea of a strong national government, mainly poor people such as farmers. Antifederalists believed the strong, national government would lead to a tyranny, such as Great Britain. They also worried that the government would abuse human rights as well as individual rights, and that it favored the rich. Though Federalists claimed the constitution was good and people didn't need a Bill of Rights, Antifederalists still wanted one, so it was made. The Bill of Rights was written by James Madison in about 1789. It was ratified in 1791.
The Bill of Rights
Freedom of Religion prevents the government of establishing and official religion. It also gives people to practice any religion they want in any way.
Freedom of Speech
The first amendment also includes freedom of speech. This means people can speak their mind and say anything they, including criticizing the government.
Freedom of the Press
In Freedom of the Press, the government can't control what source you get your information from, what you read, or anything on the media. It also means the government can't control what is printed in newspapers, what book are published, or what's put on the web. It also means people can put anything they want out there.
Freedom of Assembly
This part of the first amendment allows people to peaceably gather, such as social or religious gatherings.
Freedom of Petition
Freedom of petition allows people to protest for whatever they and ask for changes in the government.
The Bill of Rights
The 3rd Amendment
The 3rd Amendment states that in times of peace, soldiers can't stay in peoples' houses without permission and approval of the owner. It is legal to do this during wartime, but soldiers also must get approval from the owner. This is a direct result of The Intolerable Acts, the quartering act in which people were required to quarter soldiers.
The 4th Amendment
The 4th Amendment states that people have the right to privacy in themselves, papers, property, etc. against unreasonable searches. It will not be violated and no warrant will be issued unless for reasonable causes, supported by oath or affirmation, particularly describing the place to be searched and the people or thing that need to be taken.
But People think
The 5th Amendment
The 5th Amendment states that nobody can be put on trial for a serious crime unless a grand jury says there's enough evidence. If there's enough evidence, then the person charged with a crime can be put on trial. People in the military can go on trial without a grand jury approving it if they commit the crime during a national emergency, such as war. If someone is put on trial and the trial ends, the person can't be tried for the same thing again. If the person convicted of the crime of the crime serves their punishment, they cannot be tried again. The government can't make someone testify against themselves. The government cannot take ones life, liberty and pursuit of happiness without a fair trial. The government cant take away someones property and somehow pay them back.
The 6th Amendment
The 6th Amendment states that people have a right to a trial and wont have to wait a long time for it. The person accused will have and unbiased jury. The trial will take place in the are the crime took place. The accused person has the right to be told what he or she is being accused of, told who is blaming in them and has the right to ask questions. The accused person can bring in anyone who they believe can help them. The court can also make someone come to the trial without a choice. The accused also has the right to hire an attorney, and if they can't afford one, one will be provided.

The 7th Amendment
The 7th amendment states that any disputes that involve amounts of less than $75,000 will not be involved in federal court. It's against the law to "make up" your own court. If the person goes to court it will be a government recognized court (state, local, etc.)
The 8th Amendment
The 8th Amendment states the courts can't assign an accused person large amounts of money(bail). Punishments can't be cruel(ex. strangled, burned, etc.
The 9th Amendment
The ninth amendment states that just because certain rights are not listed in the constitution, doesn't mean they're not there, and they can't be violated.
The tenth amendment states that any powers not goven to the national governement by the constitution are not prohibited by it to the states, those powers are reserved for the state only or the people.
The 10th Amendment
Tragic shootings take place in Alabama, Chicago, Phoenix after Newtown. One takes the life of a 15-year-old days after she performed in Inauguration
He says things were supposed to change after the horror of Newtown. And yet we wait for things like universal background checks for guns. We should change the second amendment or the next thing we know people will be dying everywhere.

Some People's
Is there such thing as the fourth amendment anymore? Many people say I am protected under the fourth amendment, but that doesnt mean anything anymore.The US national government has been spying and tracking us on every text we send, ever picture posted, every phonecall we made, etc. The fourth amendment basically states that the US governement isn't allowed to spy on us, but they do it everyday. Now what does the fourth amendment mean?
After Boston terror attack, some call for more surveillance. That's a bad idea, He says cameras helped ID suspects, but it was the police system that worked. He says more cameras would be costly, could not stand in for humans. Punish those who abuse freedom, hurt others; don't take liberties away
Neil Richards CNN News
Things to know about the NSA's Surveillence Activites:
What does the NSA monitor?- It monitors basically everything you do electronically. For example telephone, computer, tablet, etc.
Is it legal and why?-Yes, the NSA's actions are legal. What they are saying is that they have the ability to look into everything, yet they don't until it is morally justified to do so .
Why are people overseas angry?- People are angry because the leaked documents show that the US not only spied on its citizens but also other countries such as France, Brazil, Iran and even UN diplomats

The 6th Amendment
The ninth amendment states that any right not listed for the national government would be given to the state government, but that's not the case. For example, education was not listed as one of the powers of the national government, however, the national government controls many apsects of US Education.
