Gun Control

By Michael Gucciardo

Democratic Side
democratics suport gun controle. they believe that with less guns on the streets less gun crime will happen. in order to do this they need help by the government because it messes with the 2ed admendment [right to brear arms]
Republicsan Side
they opose gun controle because they believe that its agenst your 2ed admendment. they have alot of suport by the NRA and the constatution.
My stand
im for gun controle because we dont need mac 10s and uzis to go hunting. if you can not use it for hunting why do you need to use it? standerd hand guns should not be given to felons and mentaly dissabled people for pratical reasons. a mentaly dissabled person can not be trusted with the power of a gun. they make acseptions all the time in laws like the right to free speach and press so i dont know why they make an acseption for the right to bear arms, the law that gets people killed

U.S. VS Miller      

    In the absence of any evidence tending to show that
    possession or use of a "shotgun having a barrel of less than eighteen inches in
    length" at this time has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or
    efficiency of a well regulated militia, we cannot say that the Second Amendment
    guarantees the right to keep and bear such an instrument. Certainly it is not
    within judicial notice that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military
    equipment or that its use could contribute to the common defense.

Miller VS texas

153 U.S. 535 (1894). In this case, the Court confirmed that it had never
addressed the issue of the Second Amendment applying to the states through the
Fourteenth Amendment. This case remains the last word on this subject by the
Court.

14th amendment-  All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
