This Sterling Silver Search and Seizure 4th Amendment Bead is made by We The People Beads and is a way to keep this important part of our Bill of Rights fresh in your mind.
Amendment 4 has been in the news a lot in recent years due to extreme searches performed by TSA when preparing to board an airplane.
Do you think it is unreasonable to have your hair spray or mouthwash taken away?
How about standing in the x-ray body scanner?
How much freedom (and money) do we lose by allowing these searches and seizures in the name of safety?
Just something to ponder the next time you travel…
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Do you own a copy of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States? You can get one from the Heritage Foundation and learn more about your rights.
This 4th Amendment bead has a large diameter hole that is not threaded and is compatible with PANDORA bracelets, Carlo Biagi, Chamilia, Troll and more.
