Gun Rights Debate

Protecting the rights of innocent american citizens

Intro

The NGA supports the right for all Americans (excluding: criminals) to have the right to own firearms. The right to bear and own firearms is a God-given right to almost everyone. It is a right for almost everyone to enjoy. The right to purchase and own firearms is an essential right for the safety of the public. Everyone has the right to defend themselves and others from criminals and harm. Taking ones right to bear arms without criminal reasons violates the 2nd amendment established by our founding fathers in the creating of the U.S Constitution. All innocent Americans have the right to own multiple types of firearms and purchase different types of ammo to go along with them.


My Personal View on the debate

I support restrictive gun control laws to prevent criminals from purchasing them in public forcing them to buy them from the black market. Background checks will help in the separation of innocent civilians and deranged criminals to keep the right of the 2nd amendment in the right hands. The price of ammo is burden as well as virtue, it keeps criminals from obtaining ammo for the weapons they already have but innocent people can’t buy ammo for home deference and having a good time at the range with buddies. The 2nd amendment brings people together in social events and gives strangers some common ground to start with. Innocent people have to pay the price for criminals actions with the banning of certain types of weapons and types of ammunition.
