2nd Amendment

Weapons on Sale!

Another Amendment Already? In the Past

Congress has already passed a second amendment stating that everyone has the right to bear arms in case of a government take over. If you feel safer with a gun in your house just in case something happens like when the British started to try to take over the colonies because they wanted freedom. If that happens again then the people should be armed to be able to protect themselves. Other things also can be a reason that you have the right to guns. If you get robbed then you could have a gun for protection.

"Right to keep and bear arms. 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."

The Right to Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed? Present day

This means that this shall not be violated to take away guns just in case something bad or unconstitutional happens then this amendment cannot be violated and take away a citizens protection. Back when America just started guns were not advanced so it did not really matter what type of gun you had because none of them were very powerful. The political cartoon below is showing a person from the NRA (National Rifle Association) who is holding a big gun that is semi-auto-matic. He is "shooting" anything that has to do with gun control because he will lose money if it happens.

Ex: Right now people are debating whether to limit the right to bear arms so that you cannot have like an AK-47 with 300 rounds because this is just unnecessary. The other side of the debate is that if a government take over does happen then these weapons will be needed because a small weapon won't do the job. In the change you will still be able to have a smaller weapon like a pistol.
