Freedom of religion is another right that is very important. People have the right to practice their religion or not practice any religion. Freedom of religion makes living in the U.S. more comfortable due to the fact that in other countries everyone has to follow one religion. Freedom of protesting is another right that the first amendment grants us. Protests help people get together for a cause and even if it good or bad it should be allowed because we were given the right to protest.
If people want to share their opinions on how the government is doing, they are able to do so without the fear of getting in trouble with the law. It’s also a way to defend one’s self from courts but in an unharmful way. Freedom of religion is another right to the amendment that is also very important.

The first reason why the Second Amendment should not be abolished is because we, as citizens have the right to defend ourselves. Word for word, the Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” (Constitute). That means that citizens have the right to own a firearm to defend from the government and/or criminals.
Gun Control is a good thing in many different ways for many people. However, when you have a law abiding citizen who can not purchase a gun because the restrictions are too high then there is a problem. Gun Control was made to keep a person who has something on their record like drunk driving multiple times, armed robbery, or illegal citizen from buying a gun because the government wants to keep everyone safe and does not want to harm anybody. As stated in my research found in a world encyclopedia, “Many people own guns for the protection of their home.” (“Gun 440”). What the article is saying is that if you take away the handgun of a citizen who has done no harm, and when there is a need for the protection of your family and they have no gun then they have nothing else to do but hide and hope the criminal does not find them before the police come.
When we see and hear the amount of freedom people from other nations get, we speak to the T.Vs and the radios, saying “someone should help them”, “that’s not right”, “I could never live like that”, and yet we take our freedom for granted. Yes not all people in the United Sates take their freedom for granted, but majority due. This is a problem because as a nation we see freedom as something that can’t be taken away and that’s not true. Freedom is a born gift that we must cherish and protect, because if we
Many people believe that the First Amendment gives the people right to say whatever they want but it’s not true. There is no hate speech exception to First Amendment. There are some kind of words which are not protected especially the fighting or insulting words or speech in which a person threatens to commit a crime that would result in death, serious injury, or damage is not protected by the First Amendment, instead First Amendment gives the right to fight against injustice, inequality and unfairness. For example Black Lives Matter movement, this movement has every right to express their feelings. The ways they are protesting are protected under the First Amendment.
Gun control laws affect citizens Second Amendment rights, right to self defense, and they have proven injustice. Guns can have many positive uses it is up to people to decide how they are used. There are many reasons why Gun control laws are questionable. The United States Constitution was created to establish American national government and give basic rights to citizens. The second Amendment of the U.S constitution states “The Right the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."
America’s gifts to my generation mean a lot to me. One gift America has given my generation includes freedom. Freedom is a gift that America has given my generation because freedom gives us Americans the right to speak, act, and think as someone wants without restraint. Some freedom acts include Freedom of Speech. In this act you have the right to express your ideas and opinions.

American subjects need to know their rights, obligations and security of owning a handgun. The second alteration says, "A very much controlled civilian army being important to security of a free express, the privilege of the general population to keep and carry weapons should not be encroached." The second revision was made for two things. It arrives for to begin with, to ensure the people right to have arms for self-protection and self-conservation. The second reason is identified with the volunteer army.
Today, freedom is the cornerstone of what it means to be an American. When asked what they thought it was to be an American, most people would reply with an answer about how, as an American, they had the right to be free. Whether it be the freedom to practice any religion (just like the pilgrims fought for), or it be the freedom to speak freely without fear of an oppressive government. When the pilgrims achieved this freedom, they set forth the idea that an American, at their very core, had the right to be free. Without this value, the landscape of modern society, as well as what it means to be an American, might look very different.
To know what the Founders thought about religious freedom is important to understanding the first amendment.

The people are giving up some of their right so the government will protect them. The first amendment is “freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition” The first amendment is similar to the social contract because in a way the government is promising to protect you in exchange for some of your rights. But if you think about it your free speech is limited, you can’t just say whatever you desire like shouting out “there’s a bomb” in a crowded place that’s illegal because safety is major.
