A Rule Written into History

In a college class, I had to learn about the history of the 2nd amendment and write a paper as for why it should still exist. The professor made half the class write in favor of it and the other half against it. I was initially against the amendment because of how many people have died due to guns, but after learning the history, I’m now for it, but I don’t want just anyone to have a gun. There are still some people out there who are too dangerous for such a thing and should be prevented from having one.

The history of the amendment dates all the way back to the founding of the country, where the early law makers were construct rules for the new country that should be followed. The people during that time had to essentially use that amendment when they decided to take up arms against the British during the American revolution. Simple people from normal backgrounds did whatever they could to protect their families and their new country, and that included enlisting. The war was no easy time, and many lives were lost so that the people could have their freedom from the King of England.

I don’t think that a situation similar to the one of the first colonists will happen, where the citizens will have to take up arms against a larger power, but I do see situations where guns can be useful. People who have to hunt to survive will certainly need them, and some will need them for protection, but I would prefer that people only use them as a last resort. There are many situations where people pull out the gun too easily without thinking about the consequences of their actions, and as a result, many lives are lost in the process.
