29. how about the fifth amendment?

 

no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process. mandating that I shoot someone whom I perceive to be commiting a crime is equivalent to the government compelling one citizen to deprive another citizen of their life without due process of law. This then is clearly equivalent to the government itself depriving citizens of life without due process. Furthermore, it also deprives me of my liberty and possibly my life by compelling me to engage in armed conflict with another which might be legally acceptable in a time of war on a battlefield as a conscript but is certainly inappropriate in a time of peace and on the streets of our own cities.
