to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or
to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or
to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or

to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possessions."
