The reflection story I choose is called Why I Hunt: A Predators Meditation by Rick Bass. The short story tells of Bass’s love of hunting for both elk and deer. However, the significance of the story goes far beyond merely killing an animal for its meat, as it tells mostly of the emotional struggle he feels as a hunter. Bass acknowledges the fact that he is a predator but wonders if his insatiable need for meat will somehow affect him in a later life. He questions whether or not he will have to pay for all of the innocent animals’ deaths that he has caused.
If you saw a Pit Bull being walked by its owner at your local park, how would you react? Would you cringe at the thought of the monstrous thing and stay out of its way, or would you be compelled to ask if you may pet this wonderful, misunderstood creature? The general public would be afraid of the dog. However, the properly educated portion of the human race knows better than to conform to popular belief and succumb to the mass hysteria regarding this breed without first doing research of their own. Most people shudder at the thought or sight of a Pit Bull and consider them vicious atrocities, but I will show that Pit Bulls are innocent and really are just misunderstood.

Criminals will still find a way to get dangerous weapons like guns. They usually have connections to other people that can provide them with the guns and weapons that they will use to Couse crime execute their crimes.

This amendment protects the people’s and individuals natural right to defend oneself by allowing citizens to carry legally with them a firearm. For example, if a person is being chased and hunted then that person’s natural rights to defend themselves from endangerment now applies, in which he or she can hurt the predator in order to save their life.

The purpose, referred to, is to protect the people from government, military, or group so powerful that wants to enforce its will on the defenseless people. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.
If no gun laws are in place then it will be far too easy for a young child to take their parents gun to school and shoot a classmate.

A person hunting for deer may see another person but mistake them for a deer and unintentionally shoot and kill that person.
