The Living Document

For my IB HOTA class were doing an in clase essay exercise instead of taking a final and i could use a little help braimstorming,

:P , the second question: The Constitution has been called a "living document". Explain in relation to the amendment process.I generally am going to be writing about how we can make an amendment to continue to adapt the government to newer needs and opinions, or get rid of amendents that are no longer needed or wanted. I figured i might use the second amendment as a discussion point and use the Arizona shooting as a reason why america is thinking about tightening gun rights. if anyone can think of anything else that could be used or has an opinion about why the constition is a 'living document' help would be greatly appreciated XD

I would love to take the same point and write a contrarian essay. But it doesn't sound like the task includes that option, haha.

You could look at the system of precedence used to interpret the document? Sixth Amendment comes to mind.
