Gun Control The right to bear arms is granted to all Americans by the 2 nd amendment and many consider it essential to maintaining order in this country. Even though this was the 2 nd right granted to us in the bill of rights, many Americans opt to not own a gun and some altogether would like for this right to be abolished. The right for a private citizen to own a gun is continually scrutinized by anti-gun advocates. There are many reasons people choose not to own guns, including cost of gun ownership, fear of keeping the gun away from other family members, lack of time to commit to becoming licensed, no need, constantly having to clean it, no wear to shoot it and a myriad of other reasons. But the anti-gun groups would like to see the right to own a handgun taken away from the people. Something the gun owning population, which consists of 25% of all adults in this country, would take as a threat to their civil liberties. (Cook and Ludwig 3,4) The gun control groups are firmly entrenched in their position of wanting stricter gun restrictions and penalties, gun advocates continue to insist that their right to bear arms is something that was established in the eighteenth century and cannot be taken away from them.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
