SECOND AMENDMENT PROTECTION
The right to keep and bear arms is an important part of the country that we live in; not only for hunting but protection of our lives and property. Some try to construe the problems that exist with shootings as a gun problem. The fact is that the people who commit crimes with firearms are generally people who cannot legally own a gun in the first place. The problem is not legal owners of firearms but those who will get a gun by any means necessary. These people - felons, gang members, thugs of any type, and drug dealers- will get their hands on a gun, where the people who now can legally have guns will not.
The right of the people to own and carry must be protected. Moreover, common sense must be applied: firearms do not shoot themselves, they are triggered by an individual who must be held accountable for his/her actions. Firearms are a tool to be used in the proper context. Just as a hammer used in the proper context is completely benign, but if used wrongly can bring great harm to another person.
