Introduction

The Constitutional Amendments are statements that guarantee certain rights that we all have. The first ten were introduced in the Bill of Rights, but as time went on, more would be added. The amendments I am researching are the 2nd amendment, 4th amendment, 22nd amendment, and 25th amendmement. 

 

2nd Amentment: Gives the people the right to bear arms or keep weapons, since a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free country.

4th amendment: Prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures, and requires a warrant if there is probable cause or reason to believe that a search will produce evidence of a crime.

22nd amendment: Limits the President to serving two terms.

25th amendment: Outlines the procedure for presidential succession in case of presidential disability.

FindLaw: U.S. Constitution: Twenty-Fifth Amendment

Gives information on the 25th amendment and when it was used. It does not go too much in depth about what it is about. However, it does mention when the amendment was used and how it affected America. Although it is not too descriptive, it does a decent job of telling when the amendment was used.

Second Amendment Protests at PSU Get Strong Reaction | New Hampshire Public Radio

An article about people protesting the 2nd amendment at Plymouth State University. It also talks about a counter-protest that students and professors made. To me, the protests were not needed and I think people are sensitive about hearing the second amendment. It does make sense, seeing as how there has been much controversy surrounding this amendment.
