Scenario II—Second Amendment
You accepted a job with Generic Hospital located in your city. The hospital is part of the Well Care system of for-profit hospitals. The employee handbook prohibits employees from possessing firearms on any company property. Generic Hospital is located in an area of town that is known for high crime rates, and you work the second shift, which means you will be leaving work late in the evening. You have a permit to carry a firearm in your car and believe the handbook’s provision violates your rights.

- If you challenge your employer, which party will prevail? Provide arguments for both sides, determine which party wins, and provide support for your decision.
Scenario III–First Amendment
Sullivan, a student at Shelby County Middle School, learned he received a D in English, which meant he would be required to attend summer school. While in the school library, Sullivan posted on Facebook that his English teacher should be shot. Sullivan also posted a cartoon that showed the teacher’s head on a bloody dead body. Three days later, Sullivan’s mother instructed her son to remove the post. Before the post was removed, a student printed the post and showed it to the principal, who suspended Sullivan for the last two weeks of school. Law enforcement was not involved in the situation.
Determine whether Sullivan’s statement and the resulting action by the school violate the First Amendment. Provide at least one case to support your answer.
