Second Amendment-The right to bear arms


Constitutional connection:
  Amendment II: The 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.

Explanation of Connection:

There are many supporters of the right to bear arms. Law-abiding citizens should be able to keep the right to bear arms. Even if we were not able to bear arms, people would still get a hold of these weapons somehow just like drugs and other illegal things.

 There is big controversey on whether or not to keep the second amendment because of all the violence that has been  occuring in Chicago. I believe, that law-abiding citizens should continue to be able to bear arms. Homeowners need some type of protection and a fist will not do the job when in the process of protecting a family.

My home was burglarized on June 9, 2009. Since then, I am always wondering if one day I open the door and see are T.V or video games gone or even someone standing in our home. It is very frightening and it's a shame that we need to bear arms in order to protect ourselves but as we know, the world is not a very nice place.
