Zoe Fernandez Amendment I Your rights are limited when you are talking to a police officer. When someone says something, and then you disagree with them with explicit language your freedom of speech is limited on what you can say. It also depends on where you are, like a school or church. Terry vs. Ohio - A police officer now has the right to detain and search any individual, without a warrant, or even probable cause, as long as he or she can justify a suspicion that the individual may be armed Brown vs. Hartlage - The trial court found that, because the salaries had been "fixed by law," Brown's promise was in violation of the act. Amendment II Yes, if you want to carry a gun then you have the right to carry it. It can protect you in many situations, but I think that you need to have strict rules to obtain a gun. McDonald vs. Chicago - the Supreme Court invalidates Chicago's handgun ban and holds the Second Amendment applies to the states District of Columbia Et al. vs. Heller - the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Amendment III
