The 2nd amendment has been debated over the years and has become very important in politics. The 2nd amendment says, “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The 2nd amendment is saying that it protects the individual rights of the citizens to own guns. I believe the second amendment is the most important amendment in the constitution for many reasons. It grants the citizens with protection, defense, and the right to have a gun. The second amendment gives protection to all law obeying citizens. It protects them from criminals and even from the government. Owning a gun allows citizens to protect their property and themselves. For example, if a criminal knew that a house or a certain neighborhood had guns then he would think twice before breaking into the property. I believe that guns are the best way to protect your home from criminals. As long as you learn how to use guns safely, and for the right reasons, guns also make your home safer and could even save your life and your family. The second amendment gives the citizens the power to fight back against the government. Citizens with guns can make sure the government doesn’t abuse its power. The second amendment has it’s importance in this nation today as a large part of the Constitution. Americans not only have the right to bear arms, so they can protect their family and friends. For current gun topics and how the majority of Democratic Politicians want to start changing and add on to strict gun laws; I’ve recently came upon an article that stating that “most Americans feel it is more important for the government to enforce existing gun control laws than to create new ones.” I believe that in some cases the Democratic Politicians are correct about banning large magazine rifles, but like the ban on Assault Rifles throughout 1994-2004 didn’t do anything, but crimes still

The United States of America has laws in place for ownership and control of
weapons such as guns. The Constitutions under The Second Amendment gives U.S
citizens the right to own and bear arms. Unfortunately, throughout the past decade the
United States has seen events in where its citizens have abused their right to bear arms.
Ownerships of weapons in America resulted in massive shootings in schools and malls…

There are groups on both sides arguing why we

America is known as the land of freedom. However, in present times some citizens feel that the new firearm legislation proposed by the President and his subordinates is stripping that very freedom from them. On the other hand there are many citizens that feel the new legislation will give citizens comfort and peace of mind.
In January 2013, President Barack Obama announced that there should be new gun laws in regards mainly to the horrific…

Out of all modern states, the U.S. has the longest democratic tradition. Most democratic norms, freedoms and rules of functioning of political institutions have been enshrined by the U.S. Constitution, adopted in 1787. However, this continuity has not only positive consequences: the creators of the Constitution could not have foreseen how the situation in the domestic and foreign policy would change within centuries, that is why many provisions…
Gun Control vs. Gun Rights
Since the passing of the Second Amendment granting “the right of the people to keep and
bear arms”, issues and debates pertaining to gun regulation were inevitable. People have abused
their rights to protect themselves and used the weapon to exploit their dirty desires. Due to their
injustices, laws putting restrictions and strict enforcements on guns are continually being issued.
In California more gun laws are coming into legislature and there is much debate on…
Guns are very powerful weapons, and they are so easy to access now a days. The United States has the highest gun ownership rate in the world, there are 89 guns for every 100 Americans, gun crime and murders had been increasing every year. Cutting the source of distribution of these weapons to U.S population wont be quite be the solution to this problem, but yes to make the possibilities to obtain an specific categories of fire arms more “strict”. For instance running background checks…

Ms. Grant, Mr. Melkoumian
Guns have proven to provide power to the people for centuries until now, where in Canada only the government holds this power entirely. In Canada, the use of guns has been limited so strictly that the people virtually have no control over guns at all; this is due to the unreasonable gun controls of Canada. To begin, the…
Gun Control, one of the most debated topics in recent times. With discussions and controversies on whether to enforce stricter laws on owning guns, this discussion on gun control is endless. There is no right and wrong for owning a gun, however, the way people have been abusing the amendment to bear arms is wrong. In recent years more and more issues come up with mass shootings and innocent people getting shot. The gun control policy needs to be much stricter. Guns should not…
still able to purchase their guns legally.
Although I am a huge advocate for guns I still believe that broader gun policy is necessary to contain the violence associated with guns.
This topic is creditable because it has been the hottest topic in the news for what seems like forever. People have been talking about gun control ever since the first ever identified mass shooting in 1983.
Since I am a gun advocate I have been keeping up with the gun control debates over the years and I…

America has a Right to Own Guns
Picture this, a world where no guns exist except for the ones in the governments hands. Think of a future America where no gun owners exist because the government has banned all use of firearms and stripped the American people of their second amendment right. Many people in America today have become aware and even alarmed by some of the new possible gun laws that are being proposed and put in place by the government. As a…
