  • Home sweet home!!! :D
  • The first amendment basically explains that the laws that the Congress is making can not affect people's ability to complain to and ask for assistance from the government. In addition, they can not make laws to prohibit the individual rights of the people.
  • Amendment 4
  • I am sorry ma'am but, because we have suspected a criminal has been coming in and out of your house, by law we have to investigate your house.
  • OH NO!
  • The second amendment basically explains that because the states have a militia because it keeps the state's safe and secure. This showed how people should feel safe and secure as well. Thus left us the right to bear arms.
  • Amendment 5
  • You have been offended twice for the same crime but we can not have you hurt or have a life threatening event take place twice.
  • The third amendment basically explains that a soldier can not come into an owners house without their consent during war or at piece.
  • Amendment 6
  • I am so happy that the government had the court case as soon as possible! So we can really discuss what happened.
  • This could get ugly
  • I have not been able to confront you until now and I am very angry at you!!!!!
  • The fourth amendment basically explains that the government can not search or investigate your house unless a suspicion is made of a crime of some sort. If there has been a suspicion of the house or area, the government has the right to investigate your house!
  • Okay officer, I will let your men go through my house.
  • The fifth amendment basically explains that a person can not be physically hurt for the same offence twice. This shows that if someone is to be subjected for the same offence twice, they can not be hurt twice.
  • Phew!!
  • The sixth amendment basically states that a trial will be placed for people who need it ASAP. This was necessary but hard to follow because there were are many crimes in the US. In addition, now, the people are now allowed to confront each other.
