“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security

“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 questions at hand are as follows; what does a “well-regulated militia” entail, should the background checks require more and what are the reasons for gun control? There are two sides to this argument which include the people for gun control who believe guns should be taken off the streets and the ones against gun control who believe it is a right as a citizen of the United States to carry a gun. The U.S. should not have more gun control because it infringes on the Second Amendment, education is more important than gun control, and more gun control doesn’t deter crime. The 2nd amendment protects the individual right to own a gun.  Without the 2nd amendment people would have no amendments anymore and the US would not be a free country. Gun ownership is a tradition older than the country itself. Lawrence Hunter, Chairman of Revolution PAC, stated, “The Founders understood that the right to own and bear laws is as fundamental and as essential to maintaining liberty as are the rights of free speech, a free press, freedom of religion and the other protections against government encroachments on liberty delineated in the Bill of Rights.” 61% of men and 56% of women surveyed by Pew Research said that stricter gun laws would “make it more difficult for people to protect their homes and families.” every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state they live in.  Without gun control, many lives will be taken for unnecessary reasons. Not only should things be settled in a different way, but violence is never the answer. Gun control is a controversial topic that has been around for decades in the United States and all around the world. The Second amendment says, “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.” (U.S. Const. am. 2)One reason for gun deaths is people not knowing gun inculcation. 90% of all US gun owners believe children should learn about gun safety. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. People need more gun edification and noetic health screening. “Whether in the field, at the range or in the home, a responsible and cognizant gun owner is infrequently involved in a firearms contingency of any kind” sead (SAAMI). According to CDC “leading causes of deaths” between 1999 and 2013, Americans were 21.5 times more liable to die from heart quandaries (9,691,733 deaths); 18.7 times more liable to die of malignant tumors (8,458,868 deaths); and 2.4 times more liable to die of diabetes or 2.3 times more liable to die of alzheimer’s (1,080,298 and 1,053,207 deaths); than gun deaths (464,907 deaths). If people had more gun education we would have even less gun deaths. Mexico has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the world and yet, in 2012, Mexico had 11,309 gun murders (9.97 gun homicides per 100,000 people) compared to the united States that had 9,146 gun homicides (2.97 per 100,000 people).Gun control laws do not deter crime; gun ownership deters crime. “assault weapons bans did not significantly affect murder rates at the state level” and “states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murders.”The States with the largest increases in gun ownership also have the largest drops in violent crimes.Journalist John Stossel explained, “Criminals don’t obey the law… Without the fear of retaliation from victims who might be packing heat, criminals in possession of these illegal weapons now have a much easier job… As the saying goes, ‘If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.'”
