Although these ideals seem simple to many people, they are lost on the majority of the Democratic Party in America. The Second Amendment of the Constitution clearly states that "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." This right to keep and bear arms entails a right to own weapons for the sole purpose of defense. It is important to note that the word “Arms” does not apply strictly to firearms, but rather to any armament. This gross oversight has been the core fallacy to many gun control campaigns.
Concealed Weapons The U.S. Government cannot guarantee our safety, protecting ourselves and our families is our personal duty. The government should not affect the ability for responsible citizens to protect and defend themselves and their loved ones. One may feel safer being armed, even if they never need to draw their weapon. I feel we should have the right to carry concealed handguns, because we deserve the right to protect ourselves and our families, especially when the government cannot. According to a report by statistician, William Sturdevant, “A majority of adults who legally carry concealed handguns are law-abiding citizens, who do not misuse their firearms”.
Fact: Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Granted guns make it easier but no different than a car, a knife, or some other means that is the conscious choice by the decision maker. The key issues for consideration are the legal precedence, the evolution of firearms, society’s perspective and their application in today’s modern American culture. The United States of America was founded on the principal of being a sovereign nation with the ability to protect itself from others and also from within. In order to understand the implications of instituting a nationwide ban on firearms, one must understand the past, consider the actions of the present and predict the outcomes of the future.
The second amendment says “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.” (Bill of Rights). But how could we interpret this amendment? Does this mean that we have the right to have only one gun, or we have the right to have as many guns as we want? Every right has its limitations and this right is not the exception. The first amendment says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…” (Bill of Rights).
Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work vs. Gun Control The 2nd 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.” Lorri Anderson, in her article “Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work,” attempts to convey the idea that the government and media are to an extent, responsible for misleading the public of relevant statistical information pertaining to gun control in the USA. She implies that, “Everyone should have the right to bear arms,” and her ultimate purpose is to justify that, “It is not the guns that are bad; it is the individuals carrying them.” Therefore, CCW (Carrying Concealed Weapon) carriers should be permitted to carry arms anywhere and not just be limited to having them in their homes. Anderson uses statistics from the Department of Public Safety and recounts past shooting events across the country to support her point. Anderson adopts a patriotic tone in an effort to appeal to readers that may disagree with her argument.
They investigate the crime after the fact.” CON Right to carry a concealed handgun: I. The 2nd Amendment’s rights have limits. A. The entire 2nd 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.” It does not mention the concealment of weapons. B.
Democrats in no way wish to undermine the right to the second amendment but do wish to establish strong laws to who can and cannot bear a gun for example restricting guns to be issued in the hands of previous criminals, stalkers, person going under mental services, background checks for gun sales, etc. not that someone doing right in society isn’t capable of doing such harm but that crime may be lessen in society this way the right is not taken away but
Society benefits from firearms in the hands of responsible, and law abiding people. Attempts to keep firearms away from these people do more harm than good. To begin lets define a “responsible person”. According to a definition from the School of Champions web-site, “a person who is able to act without guidance or supervision, because this person is accountable and responsible for their own actions Such a person can be trusted, and depended on to do things on their own”. These people must be law-abiding, have no criminal offences, not be mentally ill, and not known to abuse alcohol or drugs.
Gun Control Laws in America Firearms should not be restricted, nor should their accessories or capabilities. Placing laws that take away from our right to bear arms would only give negative effect on the safety of the general public and the amount of crimes committed. People need guns to protect themselves from the people who want to corrupt their lives by using guns, regardless of the law. Gun control laws vary from state to state. In the republic of California, some would say we have some of the worst laws and restrictions in the country.
In addition, we don’t need assault weapon to protect ourselves, its not a 'civilians' job to stop criminals who possess guns, it is the police's job. However, we can’t stop people to bear gun because that is civil right for all the citizen according to the second amendment of U.S constitution. I understand some amount of people do need a gun for outdoor activity like hunting, this is different from those people who use it to commit crimes. They should allow to bear gun but they should be registered and have done the background checks before the purchase a gun. In conclusion, a lot people says that they need a gun to protect themselves, but Unfortunately there are many misguided individuals in our society, and I believe that a society would be better off if they had less access to
