The first amendment is being practiced because people are putting a stand to thing they believe is unfair. People believe they shouldn’t have to get a states approval they should be able to do it.

Introduction

During the project I realized many conflicts are happening to the amendments every day. Even though the amendments were established in the 1780's they still are trying to be changed. Sometimes the arguments were very true and sometimes they weren’t fair at all. It's very interesting to see what people think how the amendments should be changed.

Revisiting the Second Amendment's right to bear arms

 

 

 Analysis: In this article it talks about the second amendment protects the right to bear arms. People are trying to practice their rights by being able to carry around guns at all times. Its one thing to be able to have one in your house, but to have one in your car is another thing. The constitutional right is being threatened because it was said that carrying a fully loaded gun in your car isn't a part of the second amendment. This act is unconstitutional because it would be very dangerous for people to carry guns in your car. It's already dangerous enough that people can have guns in their house. It's not okay that people think they can have a gun in their car.

FDA reveals bigger, graphic warning labels for cigarette packages | Amendment Project | Scoop.it

 Analysis: People are practicing the Fifth Amendment by putting warnings on cigarette boxes. The constitutional right isn't being threatened because it's being used in the proper way. Certain cigarette companies are putting warnings about what can happen to you if you smoke cigarettes. This act is constitutional because the cigarette companies are protecting them so they can't get sued, or have to pay for medical bills. They are letting people know what will happen and also a hotline to quit smoking.

Save the fourth amendment

Save the fourth amendment | Amendment Project | Scoop.it

During this article it talks about how the fourth amendment isn't being used properly. Policemen just think certain people have a gun on them or drugs. This is unfair because you just can’t call someone out just becasue they look like they would be doing something illegal. This is unconstitional because it’s very wrong in many ways and the cops should know better than that. I find it very unfair because if I was ever accused I would be upset if I knew I didn't do anything wrong.
