There are different situations where a gun has come in handy for someone to protect either themselves, their family, friends, or strangers. In the article, Overcoming Delusions About the Second Amendment, written by Jeffrey Sachs, the article states, “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.” It takes a lot of work to amend an amendment.

David DeGrazia proposes a moderate control of guns meaning that only individuals with a need for self-protection be allowed to own a gun and only after a complete course in safety (Hsiao and Berstein). DeGrazia also believes that owning a gun increases the likelihood that a person will be killed in their own home whether accidentally or intentionally (Hsiao and Berstein). The Democratic Party believes that stricter background checks will deter guns from being purchased by the wrong people. That might be true, but will it stop a violent person from committing a
On the other hand, people for gun rights claim guns on campus are what students need to keep themselves safe. The reasons for this are: the right to bear arms, being able to avoid shootings, and also gives the individual a chance to fight back.

They claim that the Amendment protects the right to arming a militia, which we now call the National Guard, but nothing beyond that. Those opposed to gun control believe that restricting guns will make our country more dangerous because countries with higher gun control have
They have used firearms to protect the nation, protect their families, hunt for food and engage in sporting activities. The issue of Guns and Gun Control is complicated. Considering the rights and liberties of a citizen against the welfare and safety of the public has always been an insecure balancing act. In the United States, gun control is one of these intense issues that have both sides, Democrats, and Republicans, firmly established in their positions.

This was meant to stop the government from being able to increase their power, and it was put in as a precautionary measure. When James Madison introduced this amendment, The Anti-Federalist's supported it because they feared having a strong government. The Anti-Federalist's were the ones whom of which demanded a Bill of Rights. They wanted to ensure that the government wouldn’t be another tyrannical one.
Proponents of more gun control laws believe that the Second Amendment was intended exclusively for militias, that gun restrictions have always existed, and that gun regulations would prevent criminals from possessing firearms. However, Opponents claim that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own guns, that guns are needed for self-defense, and that gun ownership helps to dissuade crime. Because of this obvious difference, proponents of stricter firearm regulation demand more laws to help prevent mass shooting, and want reform in the area of background checks.

Starting with District of Columbia V. Heller, where a man by the name of Alan Gura was tasked with convincing the justices that the second amendment guaranteed individuals the right to own guns.

The National Rifle Association believed that his case would end poorly for their organization. They were also dead set on making sure the Supreme Court did not make a ruling on the meaning of the Second Amendment. So they tried with all of their power to stop Gura from pursuing the case, however Gura was determined to convince the court.

If America was to enforce more gun control laws, thus would interfere with the second amendment. The Second Amendment is a right therefore a person is not forced
I am a pacifist; I am not completely against war and violence, it is a means to self preservation of the person and the state. War can be used to fight against legitimate threats such as thieves, invading countries, and terrorists. Compulsory service in the military is a breach of my civil liberties and personal philosophy. That is a direct threat to freedom. I would be for a draft (such as in World War Two, as a means of self preservation) as a legitimate government activity to protect the country.
