The Bill of Rights is what people call the first ten amendments to the Constitution. These were each added in so that people could make sure that they would be able to enjoy the natural rights of property and liberty. One of the most hotly contested of these is the 2nd Amendment, which most people interpret as giving people the right to bear arms. In addition to the right to bear arms, the 2nd Amendment also makes mention about a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of the state. This is one of the many reasons why the 2nd Amendment still today remains under close scrutiny. Many proponents of gun control believe that the 2nd Amendment was intended to give the military the ability to work with weapons, and that ordinary citizens should not be able to legally possess them. The often point out gun control statistics, many of which do not yet include some of the more recent mass killings that have taken place in public areas and schools over the last few years. For other people, the 2nd Amendment is one of the most basic and sacred freedoms, second only to the 1st Amendment to the constitution, which guaranteed people freedom of speech, worship and the press. They see the right to bear arms as a way to ensure that people will always be able to protect themselves, whether it is from the kind of tyrannical government that the Founding Fathers feared, or from a criminal element within society. Those that are against the 2nd Amendment believe it to be one of the primary reasons for gun violence today. Obviously, advocates of the 2nd Amendment believe it to be all that is standing between honest people and oppression. These two opposing viewpoints have each recently become more and more vocal, even though at the end of the day, both are hoping to see an end to senseless violence and random killings.
