Some argue that they have the right to bear arms (own a gun) because of what the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution states.
Some citizens claim to feel safer carrying a gun to protect themselves in case violence occurs.
However, most people don't realize how deadly guns are. If someone is carrying a gun on them for safety, it can lead to more violence. Also, the 2nd Amendment might not be directed at all citizens. In over 200 years, Court hasn't decided weather it refers to individuals or militias (Greenhouse).
