      This is a very interesting article questioning whether the citizens of the United States of America should be allowed to bear arms. Relating back to our AP Government and Politics class, about half of the class expressed concern over gun control as one of their top three party platforms that mean the most to them, including myself. In my opinion, the Second Amendment should be altered. The interpretation of the second amendment however is different for the Democratic and Republican parties, and in this situation, I agree with the Democratic party. They do not wish to abolish the Amendment but rather reform it-to have stricter restrictions. Therefore with some guardrails, the government could at least put some resistance as a law, rather than a free market of guns everywhere increasing the probability of gun massacres. This article also states how the Amendment was created when the United States had no military army and that they relied on the farmers and civilians to fight. However, it is different today, and times have changed-and so should the Second Amendment.

"we permit the government to have guns, not the other way around. Citizens don’t need to justify owning an “assault weapon,” the government needs to justify taking it."  

I like this quote from the article.  It really puts into perspective on how the system of who has guns should work.  I know this is just another right winged Fox News bit but still they make some good points.  I do however,  think that background checks are necessary.   But to what extent do they decide if someone committed a crime that should not allow them to have guns.   Another point talked about in this article was how Joe Biden is still pushing gun bans on weapons that he knows will not increase the safety of our nation.

This is a good speech.  He talks about how the Gun control debate has nothing to do with saftey but it has everything to do with trying to impede on our rights.   They are just trying to slowly take away guns and they are making up bogus reasons as to why certian guns are more dangerous than others.
