Transcript of 2.05 The Bill of Rights Assessment

Two situations I have addressed & evaluated in my email:
Introductory paragraph
Paragraph 2
Conclusion
Paragraph 3
1. The government forced people to evacuate from their homes.

2. Citizens were denied the right to bring legally owned firearms to storm shelters.
Hello President Obama,
The only place where rights are absolute is in a perfect world. We'll never find a place were rights are absolute with every citizen. Almost every amendment in the Bill of Rights has restrictions. Federal and state laws, and U.S. Supreme Court decisions have all placed limits on First Amendment freedoms in order to protect the public interest. Balancing individual freedoms promotes a stable society. I am emailing you because there was two important issues that have happened in my community and it is really concerning me. The government forced people to evacuate from their homes and citizens were denied the right to bring legally owned firearms to storm shelters.
The government forcing people to evacuate from their homes relates to amendment four. This amendment protects people from unlawful searches. The government is not allowed to take people's belongings without a warrant. The government should not be forcing people out of their own homes! Without their homes, they won't have a shelter they feel safe in and become homeless. If I got forced out of my own home, I would be psychotic! I think my opinion is correct because United States citizens are protected under the fourth amendment to not be forced out of their homes.
After all, these two events that the government has caused is very wrong and unlawful to the citizens of the United States. Citizens are protected under the ten amendments in the Bill of Rights. The citizens that were involved in the two issues discussed deserve the rights they were born with. Thank you very much for your time reading this email.

Sincerely,
Nyla Hussain
Citizens being denied the right to bring legally owned firearms to storm shelters relates to amendment two. This amendment protects the right to bear arms. Citizens are allowed to own guns to protect themselves and people from government abuse of power under the second amendment in the Bill of Rights. It is very unusual that citizens cannot carry their legally owned firearms to a storm shelter. Citizens carry firearms to feel protected. There is also a chance that if they leave their firearm at home, it can be lost or destroyed during the storm. I think my opinion is correct because it says it clearly in the Bill of Rights that U.S. citizens have the right to protect themselves.
