‘Living With Guns,’ by Craig R. Whitney

‘Living With Guns,’ by Craig R. Whitney | Second Amendment-Gun Control-Julia MacLean | Scoop.it
Craig R. Whitney examines America’s long relationship with guns.
Julia Maclean's insight:

The talk about gun control was brought up to the Romney and Obama during the debates. They did not believe the topic was important at the moment. Now with society changing and "guns" or "people" becoming very dangerous the topic came up again and has been a very heated debate ever since. The need of assault rifles is not needed in many eyes of the citizens. Maybe living with guns isnt the best for our country at this time.

The Conversation About Guns

The Conversation About Guns | Second Amendment-Gun Control-Julia MacLean | Scoop.it
Three perspectives on current efforts to regulate guns.
Julia Maclean's insight:

The conversation about guns have brought up quite the contraversy. Many people are upset with obama with the ban of assault rifles. Also the other debate is the amount of magazines you can carry. One man states if i can carry a gun with thirty rounds what the difference of carrying a pile of grenades or missles. I agree with this because I don't think there is a need for such powerful guns.

Julia Maclean's insight:

The second amendment is one our most important rights. Our founding fathers knew we could not be fully run by the government and the people would need to have control of some of the power. The peoples right to bear arms is the only way to protect themselves from the government. This amendment has been misread and misinterpreted many times in the past.

During the debate for the ratifictaion of the constitution the concern of the government taking over the rights of the people came into consideration. The created the Bill of Rights to protect to rights to citizens. The reason the second amendment was created was to if ever needed to overrule the government. Now the concern today is, is our society able to handle the guns and are the assault rifles neccessary?

Julia Maclean's insight:

The second amendment is stated as "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." Some people believe that the amendment should not be changed, others believe that for our saftey the amendment should be stricter. The supreme court has met many times throughout the years to revitalize and srtengthen the amendment.

N.R.A. Leaders Stand Firm Against Gun Restrictions

N.R.A. Leaders Stand Firm Against Gun Restrictions | Second Amendment-Gun Control-Julia MacLean | Scoop.it
Leaders of the National Rifle Association said in television appearances that they would fight any new gun restrictions introduced in Congress.
Julia Maclean's insight:

The N.R.A is against working with president Obama and does not want to be any part of taking away the second amendment. They opposed any of the gun restrictions and said they do not believe they should be a part of this discussion. They would not talk about the Sandy Hook shooting. They believe that the people will not allow the Second amendment to be changed, and its not the guns that kill people its the people.

The Second Amendment

The Second Amendment
Julia Maclean's insight:

video:

The Bill of Rights were deemed for the peoples rights to never be taken away. The second amendment is one of the most important out of the first ten. Its is the right to bear arms. The constitution was written so theses rights could not be overruled by the government. If so the people could fight back and protect the rights they were given.

Julia Maclean's insight:

The second amendemt is thought of differently by the people. Many think it symbolizes individual rights. The second amendment protected individuals' rights to firearm ownership, possession, and transportation. There were many different times that the courts came together to decide what the amendment really stood for.(McDonald v. Chicago)(Columbia v. Heller). In the constitution is clearly states, "The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Is it Time to Change the Second Amendment?

Is it Time to Change the Second Amendment? | Second Amendment-Gun Control-Julia MacLean | Scoop.it
After the events of Friday's Sandy Hook tragedy it is time to fully address the issues with the Second Amendment. In fact, it is time to change it.
Julia Maclean's insight:

The debate on the second amendment became very intense after the Sandy Hook Shooting. They want to change the availablity of guns. Especially on who can get the guns and how difficult it will be to get them. Changing the second amendment would create a safer and lower the gun homicide rate in the U.S.
