First Amendment Discussion
Freedom is predominantly free, rather than free, meaning more free than not free, with ebb and flow considered, based on the syllables in the term “predominantly.”
All personally held religious beliefs, which are thus short of conclusions, even to include Atheism, are defensible by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Freedom of speech does not sensibly mean that one persons’ opinion outweighs another’s preemptively. Rather, there is some fair opportunity to be heard, in ebb and flow. Every party in debate, every person, has some say in what is fair.
Freedom to “press” body parts on surfaces and buttons (like laser printers and writing instruments) is a way of seeing the freedom that I believe could use consideration.
The lifetime right of all to peaceably assemble at more than just the grocery store, is another right I consider to be quite debatable.
The right to petition is often not considered, or if it is, avenues toward building membership are difficult to forecast and prearrange. I consider that societal structures and distribution have changed so very much since amendment enacting that methodology toward petition effect could be revised, potentially.
Second Amendment Discussion
The right to bear arms is widely contested. I view it as unsafe for non-military citizens to possess military technology grade weapons. The issue might feasibly be resolved, defending hunting and farming operations, by way of limiting rounds able to be fired between reloads, to two or three. This includes police limitations to maybe six rounds. National Guard small units might be better suited than S.W.A.T. operations.
Safety is best not accomplished overly by protective measures, but by defensive measures. For example, a kitchen or camping knife best safety is designed with the human brain control of device as prime safety driver, and not using protective features to thereby cause the user to fail to be alerted to danger, better managed by the person handling the knife to assess risk experientially, than by over-protective measures which if fail, do suddenly present unsafe conditions with no fore-experience to ready the user for the unsafe change.
