The First Amendment is something that has been a part of the U.S. Constitution for a very long time. Two years ago, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Citizens United against the FEC, saying citizens have a right to exercise free speech through corporations. Today, that ruling was strengthened when the Supreme Court struck down a law in Montana that set a limit on how much money businesses could contribute to political campaigns.

By a 5-4 vote, the country’s highest court ruled for three corporations – the American Tradition Partnership Inc political advocacy group, a nonprofit group that promotes shooting sports, and a small family-owned painting business – all of which challenged the law as violating their free-speech rights.
