I say all guns are good guns There are no bad guns I say the whole nation should be an armed nation Period This rather bold statement was made by Joseph Foss former Governor and current President of the NRA or National Rifle Association Lacayo 16 I could not disagree more The NRA is a special interest group known by many As a lobbyist organization the NRA has a current main objective of protecting American citizens rights to possess and operate a firearm form being violated by gun control laws The same laws that 69 percent of the public support laws pushing for the stronger control of handguns and assault weapons Gunfree One of the NRAs main weapons in this crusade is the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America The Amendments translation in the eyes of the NRA clearly protects the individual rights of all citizens to possess and operate firearms According to the Supreme Court in the 1939 case of US vs Miller the right to bear arms is only applicable if it has some relationship towards keeping a regulated militia The Court has also stated that todays militia is the National Guard Gunfree The United States Government believes that the amendment guaranteed no right for individual citizens to possess weaponry but merely allowed the government to form and maintain an armed service Because of these different translations of our constitution gun control and the second amendment can be viewed in different ways Of the many gun control bans and laws under constant fire from the NRA are those pertaining to self-defense The notion that guns are of great value to protect ones family is false According to studies printed in the New England Journal of Medicine households in which guns are present are five times more likely to experience a suicide and three times more likely to experience a homicide than gun free homes Gunfree Gun control
