The Second Amendment explained by a 14 year old Girl. [She gets it]
Gun Control according to King George III
In England, King George III, wanting to suppress the rebellious spirit of the colonist, stripped the colonist of their right to bear arms through “an aggressive gun control program in 1774-1776.” England banned the import of guns and ammunition, confiscated the colonist personal guns and gunpowder and the central repositories that served as a “holding room” for the towns guns and powder. British soldiers placed Boston under military occupation and went house to house confiscating firearms, the British navy threatened to bombard and destroy towns. You can now see why citizens “right to bear arms was so important to our founders.
THE BOTTOM LINE
The second Amendment establishes that the militia has the right to secure a state, and you have the right to own a firearm for defense
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
Our Founding Fathers believed the right to bear arms protects the First Amendment, and it was the best guarantee for the United States and its people to remain free.
WHY SHOULD I CARE?
Amendment II of the United States Constitution is among the most cherished rights of American citizens. If the right to bear arms is infringed upon, the chances for invasion and tyrannical control of America greatly increases.
BREAKING IT DOWN
The Amendment gives the people the right to bear arms, or own guns, even if not in the military. States also are allowed to organize their own militias.
