It states in the bill of rights that American citizens have the right to bear arms.
I agree with this amendment to a certain degree. I believe that one has the right to protect themselves and or family. One should be able to have a basic gun like a forty-five caliber or nine millimeter but having a machine pistol makes no sense at all. One man does not need to have an assault rifle in his home to defend his family this is past excessive. I agree with the president on getting a grip on gun control we do need to be more specific on the bill and count down on who has access to guns. Not everyone is sane enough to posses a gun so there needs to be some kind of evaluation on everyone when they go to obtain a gun license. This would help cut back on just anyone being able to gain access to a gun or licenses. Thirty-four Americans are killed everyday and I believe this number could decrease if we as a nation come together and agree on stricter policy on guns. However if gun control laws do get stricter this may not be the answer to completely stop gun violence but its definitely a good start.
