If we had no guns we as americans wouldn't be able to protect ourselves against robbers of other things.There are elected officials that are actively engaging in the development of measures to destroy our Constitutional right to bear arms as per the 2nd amendment. Our inalienable right to bear arms is under assault by unlawful and sweeping proposals for gun bans, ammunition bans, ammunition caps, forced gun registration, prognosticated gun confiscation, and more, based upon tragic mass shooting events perpetrated by CRIMINALS and/or the MENTALLY ILL, that obtained weapons ILLEGALLY. This is why I am against gun control. It would eventually destroy the country.
Anti-gun control activists believe that the constitutional right granted by the Second Amendment should never be taken away because it would completely violate the purpose the bill of rights (LaPierre, 1 of 2). Thomas Jefferson said, "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." An unknown author once said, "An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject." Self-protection is one of the most common reasons for wanting to own firearms.
The fight to ban gun control is going to be a difficult one. Gun control laws just take guns away from law-abiding citizens. There are many reasons why people want to own a gun. Don’t keep letting the government keep making it harder for us to won a gun, everyone is a lot safer when they own a gun and follow the laws. The second amendment clearly states “the right to bear arms”, don’t let the government try to change that.
As Britain realized it would be very difficult to enforce laws on a very well armed populous with small amounts of solders, they began to take all the gun powder. This being that all the guns in this time were made to fire with gun powder. This also would begin their attempt to take ammo and guns too. Angered by this, americans revolted, the Boston Tea Party, a... ... middle of paper ... ...he common denominator in many of these mass shooting is someone who is a loner, dysfunctional and had some type of outside influence to do this, not honest gun owners. If the government continues to make laws against guns, the results could be bad.
The reason being is the government would abusively allow their supports to own weapons and the non supports would be without weapons to defend themselves. This would create an unbalanced society that would install fear in to the non supporters. So where should the government stop? I believe the government should only be able run a cross check with some database of repeat offenders and known terrorists. All who don’t raise a ... ... middle of paper ... ...u may think that owning one of these weapons would increase shooting and so forth, but I believe that if you want to shoot someone you are going to do it regardless of what type of weapon you have, and you could possible in danger a lot more people with a now easily obtain legal sniper style rifle.
Clede states, "that does not mean that the government can constitutionally prohibit all weapons, but it probably means that the government can reasonably regulate and limit their use." I agree with Clede's point. The language of the Constitution is very vague. The second amendment states, " A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." Never did the Constitution define or give examples of what a well regulated militia is or types of weapons deemed reasonable for protection.
The Constitution: Suppression of the 2nd Amendment “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not infringed.” Many people will recognize this as the 2nd amendment to the United States Constitution. What the people may not know is that it is under attack. Those that oppose the right of the citizens to own firearms are trying to eradicate the 2nd amendment because it guarantees that right to the American people. Liberals believe guns are evil devices that go around and shoot people. They conclude that by restricting and eventually banning guns, gun violence will resolve into nothing.
The second amendment to the constitution says, “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”(website 1). This means everyone has the right to OWN and posses a gun and the right to own a gun CAN’T BE TAKEN AWAY. People can’t possibly take away the right to own a gun because it is part of the constitution and that is one of the founding principles of our government. Some people may say this is pointless because times are different from when the laws were made but laws are laws rights are rights and they can’t be taken away. Another reason guns are necessary is for protection.
They want to challenge the freedoms that have built the United States into the nation that it is today. They want to challenge the freedoms that Americans are specifically promised in the second amendment of the Constitution. All lawmakers need to stop consider the effects that will come into play with the creation of gun control laws. Lawmakers should not pass gun control legislation because guns provide protection for citizens, the absence of liberty infringing laws keeps trust in the United States government, and guns allow Americans the ability to engage in traditional pastimes. Current lawmakers believe that any possession of firearms leads to serious danger because of the way that they might be used.
Gun control violates rights given to us by the Second Amendment, guns have proven to be extremely effective in deterring crimes and protecting private property, gun control does not work in controlling violence, and gun control goes against everything the founders of this country stood for. Gun control violates the rights that the founders of this country shed their blood for. Our constitution is the rights that the framers of this country put together because they felt it to be necessary for a strong nation. In it the Second Amendment states, ?A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. One would think that the men who wrote the Constitution knew and understood the importance of allowing a free people to have the right to keep and bear arms.
