In Your Honest Opinion: FireArms

Why is everyone trying to take the right to own firearms away? . The debate over gun control has always peaked following prominent acts of violence committed with guns.

The Constitution of the United States of America states in Amendment II states "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." That means that we as citizens have the right to bear arms. We have the right to own guns. It does not give us the right to walk around with them in our pocket. It does not give us the right to use them in a manner consistent with a crime.

Proponents of stricter firearm laws are calling for mandatory child safety locks, tougher background checks, and other controls that they believe will curb the rise of gun-related violence.

The National Rifle Association has criticized the measure as another attack on gun owners. They may be right. More control over us by the government. The citizens of England have already been forced to give up their arms. Some that has been in their families for generations.

Taking our guns away will not stop the crimes. Taking our guns away will not stop the shootings. Better management maybe and more parental control will help, but the guns will always be there for anyone to get.

More and more our freedoms are being taken away. When will it stop?

Donít take our guns away. It wonít stop the crimes.
