Gun control is a big topic nowadays, and the big argument is whether or not we should revoke the second amendment or not. Guns don’t go off on there own and shoot people, for someone to have been wounded or shot the trigger would have to have pulled by a person with the intention of shooting. Why is it so easy for us to blame other people or things instead of taking responsibilities for our actions?
The Declaration of Independence was signed and adopted by John Hancock, on July 4th, 1776, consisting of 10 amendments. Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms: “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.” The second amendment was and has been followed by our government for over two and a half centuries. So why is okay to change the law now, why shouldn’t the people change their ways and act like civil human beings? This Country has been through hell and fought for way worse, and we should be way past this or honestly, we shouldn’t even have this problem at all. People need to think about their actions. Guns are for protection, not to be used to go and have a killing spree.
The idea of guns being taken away is flabbergasting and quite upsetting. And what’s worse is that the main people all for revoking the second amendment will not even step out in public without their security detail, so how is that fair. Guns are not the issue in the world people are and thinking that taking them away is going to solve the problem is insane; if not idiotic and could make things a lot worse.
The Ambassador of Australia said his Country’s gun law couldn’t work for America, why? Australian ambassador, Joe Hockey said: Australia and the United States are entirely different situations, it all started from our founding. Culture of self-defense is what America was founded. Australia was based on a culture of “I will be protected from my government.” Australia didn’t come about as a result of a brutal cold war. We weren’t invaded. We were not ambushed. We weren’t occupied. That makes an incredible difference, even today. America’s history is way different than any other countries. America had an unpleasant/ horrifying civil war, with more casualties than every other war combined. The second amendment was based and made on an antiquated view of what it means to be occupied.
Yes, we can do things a little differently and take different precautions. Maybe more thorough background checks and testing to make sure everyone who does have or wants a gun is equipt enough to handle one. Again, this is not a Gun problem. This is a people and morals problem that hopefully can be fixed.
