1. Bill of Rights. It contains the first 10 Amendments of the US Constitution.
2. I think it was James Madison but it could have been good ole Tommy Jefferson. And btw,why aren’t you doing your own homework?
3. I don’t know.
4. The final result was that we needed them to protect us from the government taking advantage of us.
5. Freedom of Speech, Religion, Right to bear Arms, right to not be subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures, to not be required to testify against ourselves, to have a jury trial by our peers, right to an attorney in a criminal proceeding, a right to not have cruel or unusual punishment….
