2nd amendment- 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.
Against Gun Control- In a recent servey the reasons stated ro reasons to own guns was 67% to protect themselves from crime, 66% target shooting, and 41% said they owned a gun for hunting purposes.
Concervatives believe that its the right of every citizen to own and use firearms. Individuals have the right to defend themselves. Those who are agaist gun control laws believe that the laws do not prevent criminals from obtaining guns. Because of this I am against gun control.
Pro Gun Control
Roughly 16,272 murders were committed in the United States during 2008. Of these, about 10,886 or 67% were committed with firearms.
Liberals believe it is the role of local and federal government to protect the people through law enforcement agencies and the military. Additional gun control laws are necessary to stop gun violence and limit the ability of criminals to obtain guns. More guns mean more violence. That is the basic mindset of liberals or pro gun control individuals in America.
