The 2nd Amendment is about more than just safety. It is a right that American’s have had since our country was founded. In addition to safety, the right to bear arms is also about having the freedom to own a weapon, and the independence of being able to protect yourself and your family. There is no question that the 2nd amendment must remain a right in America!
Nobody can argue against the fact that the right to bear arms increases a citizen’s sense of security and ultimately their independence. When we’re at an event or going through the airport and we see a cop with a gun, we feel much safer knowing we’re protected. Everyone also knows that guns increase our sense of security and prevents crime.
I believe the right to bear arms is a right that should never be taken away from Americans. There are only rare circumstances in which the government should ever intervene. For example, preventing felons or those on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns.
- Protection from government
- Tool to preserve all other rights
- Gun control takes guns out of good people’s hands
