The founding fathers made it crystal clear in the Constitution that the ability to own guns is a right, and this decision has been confirmed by our nation’s courts and by the custom and practice of the generations that came before us throughout our history. Firearm restriction proposals should not be made into law because they completely and utterly ignore the Constitution and would result in a more violent society where the only means for the people to defend themselves against a threat has been abolished and taken away.
