The right to bear arms has been a controversial issue ever since James Madison established it as the second amendment of the constitution. The second amendment 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” (US Const. amend. II). Those in favor of the second amendment, believe that arms are used for protection, dangerous situations, and sports.
“To conquer a nation first disarm its citizens” (Adolf Hitler). The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution says, "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. " The Constitution protects the rights for an American citizen in the United States to bear arms to provide security. Throughout American history, guns have been used to protect families, whether used in war or for protection in the home. Although the amendment was put in place to protect the American people, disasters such as school shootings, assassinations and bloody massacres prompted questions to come up regarding restraints on the law, and what kind of people are allowed to own guns, and be trusted with them.
Gun control in the United States is a history of discrimination which is still continuing today. Gun control is a measure to reduce crimes. The crimes are mainly caused by the African-American. The first and foremost gun legislation for restricting the guns is the Pre-Revolution South. The primary aim is making the firearms away from the blacks and also to make a white monopoly on power.
On December 15, 1791, a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The bill was approved by three-fourths of the United States. The 2nd Amendment was created, to provide citizens of the U.S. a form of private protection. However due to the increase of technology along with the rise of violence in modern time, many are beginning to question if we should remove the Amendment, and only grant members within militia organizations access to this Amendments right to bear weapons.
Should an american who has the right credentials have the right to bear arms? Should the be able to have a concealed weapon and or be able to open carry a rifle or other firearm?

Last but not least, the famous Second Amendment. Here is what it is about: “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”. Pro-gun supporters love to cite the Second Amendment as a proof that it is their right to carry guns in order to rise up against a tyrannical government. However, they are only manipulating the original intent of the Second Amendment for their own profit. Back in the days, the United States had no standing federal army because the founders were afraid of a national standing army consolidating power and the states were expected to sustain a state militia in order to contribute to the national defence.
For other purposes, such as responding to sudden invasions or other emergencies, the government could rely on a militia that consisted of ordinary civilians who supplied their own weapons and received some part-time, unpaid military training.” This explanation brings me to my next point of what the Second Amendment protects citizens from. As described in the quote, armed citizens constitute a militia that defends our nation from foreign forces and other emergencies in our country. If the government continues to regulate the type of firearms the people of America possess it would be put Americans at a disadvantage because invaders would have a significant advantage over the American people which essentially defeats one of the main purposes of

The fact of complete gun control for rifles is unconstitutional because the 2nd amendment is intended for the american people to be able to defend themselves from a tyrannical government.
