PETA says 13th Amendment applies to animals | Greeley Gazette

PETA says 13th Amendment applies to animals | Greeley Gazette | Bird Amendments | Scoop.it

 by Jack Minor – An animal rights organization has filed a lawsuit claiming that the 13th Amendment which outlaws slavery applies to animals as well as humans. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a suit in the U.S.

 

 

Analysis- This article on the Thirteenth amendment is about PETA arguing that the slave laws apply to the animals as well as humans. PETA says that the thirteenth amendment applies to all the animals. They argues that as blacks were removed from their homeland and forced to serve as slaves in America, the killer whales at SeaWorld were likewise removed from their home in Iceland. I believe that this argument is constitutional. These animals are being captured and forced to live in captivity. Most of these animals become depressed, and it is unfair to them. They are supposed to be out in the wild living their lifes in their natural habitat, not in captivity.

Bill: Allow guns in car at work » Michigan » Traverse City Record-Eagle

Bill: Allow guns in car at work » Michigan » Traverse City Record-Eagle | Bird Amendments | Scoop.it

Analysis- Business owners could lose their right to restrict the possession of firearms on their private workplace property. A recent state house bill would make it legal to conceal a gun in one's car at work, no matter what the boss says. I agree that this argument of having to keep your gun in your car, and cant take it with you is constitutional. If you bring your gun to work, you never know what could happen. Someone could steal it, use it, or anything. You never know what will happen with humans. The guns should be in the car.

Wealthy NY Couple Charged With Slavery

Wealthy NY Couple Charged With Slavery | Bird Amendments | Scoop.it

Analysis- A millionaire couple was accused of keeping two Indonesian women as slaves in their luxurious Long Island home and abusing them for years. I think that this is  completely unconstitutional. No human should be a slave for any other human, no matter what color, religion, or anything.
