Although people want to blame all the violence in the world on guns, law abiding citizens have a right to purchase and own guns should not be restricted. Many Americans believe that having a Gun Makes them feel safer and more confident about being able to protect not only themselves But more importantly their loved ones as well. Eliminating gun is bad idea. ” The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”-Walter LaPierre Vice president of the National Rifle Association. As a U.S citizen it is a right to keep and bear arms. People use guns for protection and self defense for people who are assaulted.it goes for every single person regardless there gender.There is a lot of women that live alone. There is a higher chance of women getting raped ,assaulted or rodded than man. I believe that every single woman those who live alone , and those who have children to care for should have a firearm to protect themselves and their loved ones. Women are not as strong as men so in the event that a woman is attacked by a man , a gun would give her a chance to defend herself or scare of the attack. According to the recent Gallup polls ¨62 percent of adults believe having gun in there homes will make them feel safer an 56 percent think this country will be safer if more people carried concealed weapons¨(pertheweek.com). This research shows that more than 50 percent of adults in the united states of america prefer being able to own firearms and have them in their homes. I personally believe that ¨it better to have a gun for protection and not need it than and not to have one at all¨.Not only owning a gun in america make a law abiding citizen feel safe , it is our right as stated in the 2nd amendment . Being able to keep and bear arms is one of the oldest laws that this country was built upon. ¨?he founders intended the second amendment to function as a citizen check against overreach in the event that the government started to take civil right in the constitution”(gosar.house.gov) eliminating guns violents the second amendment making a ban on guns is unconstitutional.By eliminating guns/or banning gun in this country goes against what the founders of this country intended for law abiding citizens ¨Well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state , the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not infringed.¨ – (The 2nd Amendment. december 15,1791 the bill of right (the first ten amendments of the constitution). I personally feel a lot more focus should be on figuring out ways to keep guns away from criminals, not the citizens who can legally own guns. possibly put stricter laws on gun companies in the U.S and also stricter law on importing gun in the U.S. there are other avenues in which the government can take before even elinalting citizens from being able to own a legal gun.
