The Second Amendment

The Right To Bear Arms

Amendment 2

"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

I believe that the 2nd amendment is very important. It allows you to have guns, and most people feel more pretected with a gun in their house. It make the person feel like they are protected, like they have self defence. But is this a little bit to extreme? Should this amendment have limits?

Why?

This amendment was made because most of the men in the colonies only had riffles to fight for their country. They had them to hunt originally and they decided to use them in the revolution also. Now we have this law to day so that we have a way to protect our selves too. A modern day example of this is gun collecting. there are many people through out the country who collect guns, recently a young man stole one of his moms assualt rifles, and killed 20 children and multiple adults. That is why I think this amendment needs to be changed to something that is much, much stricter.

In my Opinion

In my opinion this amendment is pretty good. I mean I think it should have limits like to no assault weapons or any other guns that we would use for war, becuase unless your trying to hurt someone then I don't think you need it. But other than that I think that this amendment is good, after all it helps us protect ourselves
