Keep Assault Weapons Legal Imagine that it is 2015 and America has been in a sort of “Cold War” scenario with China for the past six years. The thing about it is that the American government is trying to keep it as quiet as possible. One day, out of nowhere, there are red parachutes all over the sky and gunshots and explosions going off everywhere. Now this is where the decision that congress made about assault weapons come to the test. Either the history books are going to say, “On that horrific day in 2015, the great nation, America came to a bloody, screeching halt.” or the book will read, “On that horrific day in 2015, Americans pulled together, and gathered there weapons. Armed with everything from kitchen knives to M16’s the American people became one and fought of the communist invader”. For this reason plus many others including the second amendment, Assault weapons should stay legal. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads, “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”. This clearly states that the American citizens have the right to own weapons. The Amendment doesn’t say, “…The right of the people to keep and bear some kinds of arms”. So who says that we cannot own an assault weapon, obviously not the United States Constitution? There are two different definitions of an assault weapon.
