ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the conversation between Bill Cope and Bob Berzerquierre regarding the revision being made by the latter to the U.S. Bill of Rights. Berzerquierre mentions that he finished revising the First Amendment which concerns free speech. Berzerquierre says that his proposed revision for the First Amendment would restrict the U.S. Congress from making law that abridges the freedom of speech. It adds that Cope questions Berzerquierre for not mentioning about yelling in his revision.
