DescriptionAn argument of adressing the proposition of outlawing guns
Should Guns be outlawed?
Guns, one of the most controversial topics in today’s ever growing violent society. When you look at it from one perspective you think guns are not the problem it’s the people who carry guns that is the problem. We cannot band people from using guns, that would just make things to simple, so what choice do we have? Well the government would like to banned guns, make it harder for people to get a hold of guns in the first place.

When the fore fathers stated that this right shall not be infringed upon, it was talking about by the government, the new government that was being made by those same individuals. Our fore fathers were making a statement that the citizens of the new country had a duty to make secure their person, their state, and their country. There can be no doubt that banning guns would go against the very core and heartbeat or our country and its laws.
One of the arguments that those that want to do away with our second amendment right to bear arms is that the crime rate would be reduced by the lack of guns on the street. This is preposterous at best ...
