The 2nd amendment is the right of the people to keep and use bear arms. 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. The second amendment means that people have the right to have guns to defend their selves, if they feel threated. This also states that the purpose of having guns is to supply police/army groups with guns to defend communities.
In the 3rd Amendment, homeowners donâ€™t have to put of soldiers in their homes. No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered neither in any house, without the consent of the owner, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. The government cannot require me to keep soldiers in my home.
The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the first 10 constitution of the Bill of Rights which protects your from unreasonable searches and servers. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. They can search your body, or your house, or your papers and things only to prove to a judge that they have a good reason to think you have committed a crime. If a police want to search my home, they canâ€™t come without a warrant from a judge.
The Fifth Amendment (Amendment V) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, protects against abuse of government authority in a legal procedure. A person doesnâ€™t have to testify against him or herself. There should be NO double jeopardy. Property cannot be taken without payment. For example, I canâ€™t be held for a crime without a grand jury indictment.
The Sixth Amendment (Amendment VI) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights which sets forth rights related to criminal prosecutions. We all have the right to a speedy trial and an impartial jury. Right to have a lawyer. The Lawyers know the laws and how to defend a person, which is the benefit to have a lawyer.
The Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights. We have the right to trial by jury for civil trials. According to this amendment you have the right to a trial by jury, if it is a civil case i.e. a law case between two people or an issue. If you accused of a crime, you have a right to hear the witnesses against you.
The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights prohibiting the federal government from imposing excessive fines or cruel and unusual punishments. Excessive hail shall not be required nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. If someone sues me for more than $20, I have a right to a trial by jury. You cannot be given cruel and unusual punishment if youâ€™re convicted of a crime. The reason why you canâ€™t give cruel and unusual punishment is because; the U.S. tries to be a moral, ethical, and humanitarian nation so the Constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishments.
