History

TermDefinition
Amendment I This amendment secures freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and the freedom to protest.
Amendment II The second amendment is the right to bear arms which means the government can’t take away our guns. It also states that each state should have a well regulated militia.
Amendment III The government can’t house soldiers in people’s homes.
Amendment IV The government can’t search someone’s property without a warrant that describes places to be searched and things to be be seized, and the warrant can’t be issued unless the government has a lot proof that the person is breaking a law.
Amendment V You cannot be tried twice for the same crime (double jeopardy). You don’t have to testify against yourself and must go through the proper judicial process before convicted. The government can’t take any of your property from you unless they pay.
Amendment VI The defendant has a right to a fair trial with an attorney if they can’t afford one. They also have the right to know why they are being accused and to meet their plaintiff (accuser).
Amendment VII A case will go to federal court if it exceeds $20 which was a lot of money at the time. Nowadays it is normally $75,000. People also can’t make their own courts so if a person goes to court it will always be one that is set up by the government.

Amendment IX Allows the states to grant more rights than given under the constitution.
