10 Amendments

The first 10 amendments of the Constitution are called the Bill of Rights.  Give them a read.

Preamble

First Amendment – Freedom of speech, press, religion, peaceable assembly, and to petition the government

Second Amendment – Right for the people to keep and bear arms, as well as to maintain a militia

Third Amendment – Protection from quartering of troops

Fourth Amendment – Protection from unreasonable search and seizure

Fifth Amendment – Due process, double jeopardy, self-incrimination, private property

Sixth Amendment – Trial by jury and other rights of the accused

Seventh Amendment – Civil trial by jury

Eighth Amendment – Prohibition of excessive bail, as well as cruel and unusual punishment

Ninth Amendment – Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights

Tenth Amendment – Powers of states and people

At no point does it tell you it’s OK to not wear a mask.
