All of the first ten amendments, or Bill of Rights, are important, while some play a bigger role in my particular life than others. Some amendments that I don’t feel necessary are Amendment 2, 3, 4, 6, and 10. These are all amendments that are not of much importance to me.
Amendment 2 is the right to bear arms. Being under-aged, I don’t even have this right, so it’s pretty obvious that I can live without it. Besides, you don’t need a gun. The odds on your house getting robbed are very slim, and the chance that it will get robbed while you’re there is even less. It is more likely to accidentally shoot someone. Amendment 3 basically states that troops can not be quartered in your house in a time of peace. What’s the big deal having a couple of more people in your house? I do believe that they should not be allowed to stay unless it is totally necessary, though.
The fourth amendment says that there should be no unreasonable searches or seizures. The police should have the right to go through your home even without a warrant if something fishy is going on. Amendment 6 says that you have a right to a speedy, public trial. In my opinion, trials should not at all be public. Only immediate family members, the judge, the jury, the defendant, and the plaintiff should be allowed in the courtroom during the trial.
Finally, the tenth amendment states that all states can be independent to all others. It really isn’t necessary to have each state free. We are all part of the U.S., so why should our governments be any different?
Each amendment of the Bill of Rights plays an important role in some peoples’ lives. These five just don’t apply to me.
