Concealed Weapons The gun laws and restrictions have become a very controversial topic in the world today. The people of the United States are nearly spilt on whether or not there should be stricter gun laws, but more people lean towards the stricter side of the line. Although many would argue that stronger gun laws will increase crimes, stricter gun control legislation is an attack on the 2nd Amendment, and there can be no ‘Partial Restriction’ of fundamental rights.

Guns have been an integral part of the history of not only the United States, but of the United Kingdom for many of the past few centuries. The US has long been known for its more lenient gun laws (compared to the rest of the world), while the UK has been known for being very strict with theirs. Gun laws in both the US and the UK have become more prominent and widely discussed since the 1800s due to the widespread availability of guns, and the concern that criminals have easy access to them. Also, because citizens are afraid that too much gun legislation will result in their lack of being able to protect themselves from criminals. Guns have been a deeply rooted part of American culture since its earliest founding days.

The Second Amendment states that one has the right to bear arms. This right can be taken away from one when they do some sort of crime that goes against this and gets their right taken away from them. Around 3 million americans carry a gun with they all the time with a concealed weapons permit. That number is 20% out of the 15 million americans that have a concealed weapons permit. We should not get rid of the right to carry a concealed weapon though there are exceptions depending on the person and their history.

"Would you rather just sit there and cower underneath a desk while someone executes you and your friends or would you rather have a chance to defend your life? That's what it really boils down to," says Michael Flitcraft, a 23-year-old sophomore at the University of Cincinnati. Flitcraft has become a leading advocate and organizer for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC), a grass-roots organization that was formed after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre that left 32 college students and professors dead (Arena). The organization now boasts a membership exceeding 42,000 college students, professors, college employees and parents who believe that holders of state-issued concealed handgun licenses should be allowed to extend those rights
