Questioning the Necessity of Guns The Second AmendmentEvery day in the United States ten children under the age of eighteen are killed accidentally by a gun while another one hundred are seriously injured Meanwhile every three hours a teenager uses a handgun to commit suicide Seventy-five percent of all homicides in the US are the result of handguns Today there are well over 150 million handguns in America and people who own handguns are more likely to kill a family member or a friend than a burglar With so many reasons for gun control it is undeniable that some restrictions need to be put in place something needs to be doneThe necessity of guns in early America is obvious as they were used for hunting and protection against wild animals as well as against the Indians The authors of the second amendment never imagined automatic assault rifles or the protection of a large well-armed police force Times have changed We no longer need a citizens army or protection against a tyrant government While the amendment guaranteed the right to carry a gun our interpretation of it has changed over the years allowing for passage of regulation as the need arose Thomas Draper 96 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 states the second amendment the right to bear arms constitution 2nd amendment Shouldnt I have the right to have a child and not worry that when he goes to play next door with a friend he doesnt get shot by the fathers handgun What about my rights The impossible task of passing gun restrictions is not due to lack of need or poof of it rather because of political rivalries the NRA and special interests in Washington The National Rifle Association has been very effective in preventing gun control through lobbying advertising letter writing campaigns
