Restore The Fourth Protest Set for July 4th

July 3, 2013 -

Several advocacy groups have banded together for a 100 city protest called Restore the Fourth on July 4. The day-long protest is described by organizers as a "grassroots campaign designed to raise discussion in Congress about the rules and regulations of the Fourth Amendment." Specifically, the protest focuses on some of the laws and activities being used in the name of fighting terrorism. Mostly though, the protest is in response to the NSA's activities that have been leaked by NSA contractor Edward Snowden including the collection of Americans' mobile phone data and the PRISM surveillance program.

If you need a reminder of what the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is all about, read below - it's worth restoring and preserving:

"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 Warrants 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."

I've got a Bill of Rights: TSA Edition, printed on a credit-card sized steel plate, with the Fourth Amendment highlighted.  Unfortunately, a lot of the ink has rubbed off in my wallet.  I should see if anybody does an engraved one...  ;)

Re: Restore The Fourth Protest Set for July 4th

Since it's steel, it should be possible to just have it engraved - sand off the remaining ink and check the yellow pages.

They generally charge by the letter, so I'd suggest just having the fourth amendment engraved and sized to fit to save the price, since it is the one that matters.
