The Second Amendment
The right to bear arms
Private gun ownership has been a part of American culture since Great Britain sent settlers to North America in the early 1600s.It was British policy not to allow colonists to keep firearms but also to encourage them to do so.
In my words...
Citizens have the right to have guns and other weapons as long as they don't hurt anyone.
