I have to draw symbols for the 2nd and 6th amendment, but I don't really understand them. If someone could define them in simpler terms, that would be SO GREAT!!!
Amendment II (the Second Amendment) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, declares the necessity for "a well regulated militia," and prohibits infringement of "the right of the people to keep and bear arms."
The second amendment says we need an army and that people can own guns.
The 6th Amendment is sometimes call the bill of rights of the accused. It tells how someone accused of a crime can have a fair trial.
shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial,
by an impartial jury
and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation;
to be confronted with the witnesses against him;
to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor,
and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.
