“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control; Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time...It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience. (Ronald Reagan) Gun control continues to raise concerns especially with recent events. Individuals walking down the street feel that it is a death sentence due to safety concerns and the need to protect themselves without legal issues. Owning a gun and being able to carry it without persecution allows individuals to be able to protect themselves and have a sense of justice. Due to recent events, the government wants to exam how to take away our Second Amendment right.

Removing all guns is not the answer but self control is. “Arming more people will make our country safer and more peaceful, they say, because criminals won't cause trouble if they know they are surrounded by gun-toting good guys.” says Melinda Wenner Moyer. Arming more good citizens will be able to help our society heal quicker. Citizens should learn gun safety and be responsible instead of being treated like children and get their ‘toys’ taken away.
“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.” Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992). The Second Amendment supports citizens right to bear arms and ultimately protect ourselves. The founding fathers of this land before us put these laws in place for the people, of the people.
