  • Does the Second Amendment Still Apply Today: An Intellectual Perspective

    Justice is a funny thing, wherein John Locke's theory of Relativity towards the Categorical Imperative, he takes a rather Hobbesian approach to the subject. The Marxist ideology expressed towards the Second Amendment towards the Botswanan constitution rectifies the fact that capitalism really does end the bourgeoisie, and thus gun rights are to be permeated.

  • YES, Second is GREAT!!!

    I think that this is relevant today, people get harmed, if they have guns they might be a bit safer. There are plenty of reasons why not to ether, so check out the NO, side and give them a chance. With the good there is always bad. So we will never really be safe.

  • We need them in everyday life.

    If someone tries to harm us or threaten us we have our weapon to protect our self, but if we didn't have our guns then we would be completely helpless in this situation. Even the strongest person or biggest person can't really do much with a gun pointed at them.

  • Guns should still be used, just higher background checks.

    I am a proud Democratic Clinton supporter, and I still think we need our guns. There are higher crime rates now, and while most of the criminals use guns, if we just do higher background checks, or stop children from getting guns, and things like that, than the people that won't rob banks and kill people can't get the guns. The gun doesn't kill the person, the person does. A human cannot make a bench without tools, and a gun is just a tool for killing. A serial killer could do just a little less damage with a knife instead of a gun. And if we ban guns, well, when we banned alcohol, people started illegally buying beer and wine and selling alcohol too. People will just continually buy guns off the black market if we ban it. Someone insane will not get a gun if we do background checks, but a hunter or a person who wants to protect himself in the inner city should be able to get a gun. And plus, most gun deaths are suicides, and most of those are children. If we stop children and people who might have suicidal thoughts from getting guns, than the gun deaths in America will drastically decrease.

  • The second amendment is valid.

    This is because we, as people, shall always have the rights to own and carry our own firearm. We should be able to protect ourselves if necessary. We need to be able to say that we can protect our home, ourselves, and most importantly, we should be able to protect our family.

  • The second amendment will always apply.

    The right of the people to protect themselves from a tyrannical government and home invaders shall not be infringed under constitutional law. May these rights be infringed the citizens will rise against its own government and use the right to defend themselves from those who wish to lower the standard of life that they have today.

  • The right to defense comes after the right to think.

    If the second amendment no longer applies because of modern guns, then the first amendment doesn't apply to the internet, social media, TV, radio, or any other thing that wasn't in existence in the late 19th century. Yet it does, the constitution doesn't just stop applying because of modern technology, it's the constitution. The first amendment gives us the freedom to think, believe and live, the second amendment gives us the right to defend those freedoms guaranteed previously.
    "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. "
    Notice the comma after "State" separating the ideas.

  • No, the second amendment no longer applies.

    When the second amendment was written ,the military and civilians had similar firearms; the amendments man purpose was to help people defend themselves against corrupt government, but with the advancements in military technology and spending since World War Two this has become impossible. An AR 15 doesn't stand a chance against a city destroying nuclear missile and a 9mm cannot take down a multibillion dollar F22 Raptor. With the Us spending over $400 billion a year on the military the thought of civilian defense against it is becoming futile.

  • No, the second amendment is no longer relevant.

    The second amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was written hundreds of years ago, at a time when there was no way that the founding fathers could have imagined the challenges we currently face. I believe that if they were around today to see the problems we're having with guns, they wouldn't have a problem with enacting serious gun control laws.

  • Law abiding citizens

    Every gun owner is a law abiding citizen........ Until they use a gun in the commission of a crime. The more "law abiding" gun owners there are the more likely they are to use that gun in the commission of a crime. Guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people.

  • The second amendment does not apply today.

    The framers of the constitution did not anticipate modern fire arms. In the time of the foundation of the government, guns were slow and inaccurate. Also, people genuinely needed guns to protect themselves from wild animals in rural parts of the country. Today, the second amendment is anachronistic and it should be repealed.

  • More harm than good

    The need to protect yourself from a tyrannical government is theoretically relevant, but highly improbable. The pain caused by the existence of guns in society is real, and of epidemic proportions.
    No amount of fallacious grandstanding (ie guns don't kill...) changes the reality that guns cause obscene amounts of actual harm, all to protect against an insignificant theoretical risk.
    However, you would have to get rid of ALL the guns, or you could make things worse. At a practical level, what chance of that?

  • Well Regulated Militia

    The people are not a citizen Militia anymore. The right to bear arms for that purpose is no longer valid. We have a modern advanced police force and military for those purposes. The right to bear arms for the protection of your home, lives and property should be preserved with a limitation on what guns one can purchase for that purpose. The problem is guns of all kinds are being taken into the public domain and people are shooting other people making the lives of Americans unsafe. Guns for protection must remain locked up in the home. This idea that citizens must protect against a rogue regime takeover is ridiculous today t. No citizen group will ever defeat the military so that argument is no longer valid.

  • IT WAS 225+ YEARS AGO and about 90% of the 2nd Amendment is NO LONGER VALID

    WHY it isn't as relevant today as it was 225 years ago, Every US Town, County, State & Numerous DA's Office all have their own independent Police Force + Each State has it's own National Guard.

    Additionally there are Hundreds of Federal Agencies & Departments like the FBI, ATF, Treasury, IRS, TSA, & Border Patrol agents and a Boat Load of agencies that carry allowed firearms, so the right to carry arms is truly not in jeopardy.

    THE PROBLEM IS Military Style Automatic Weapons as well as Illegal automatic and unregistered Weapons, never envisioned by the drafters of the 2nd Amendment


    The SECOND Amendment as approved in 1789 was ALL ABOUT the fact that OUR GOVERNMENT was so deeply in DEBT after the Revolutionary WAR.

    The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also referred to as the American War of Independence and as the Revolutionary War in the United States, was an armed conflict between Great Britain and those thirteen of its North American colonies which after the onset of the war declared independence as the United States of America.

    After 8 years of borrowing money to pay for the Revolutionary War it simply could not afford to PAY FOR a Standing Army, but also realized that if conflict arose, the Government would need to assemble a sizable Military force.

    Definition of militia (Currently in 2017)

    1a :a part of the organized armed forces of a country liable to call only in emergency The militia was called to quell the riot.
    B :a body of citizens organized for military service
    2:the whole body of able-bodied male citizens declared by law as being subject to call to military service

    So although the Second Amendment states, The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed that only refers to those persons belonging to a well regulated Militia..............It was also recognized that Citizens needed Arms to hunt, Deer, Bear, Bison, Elk & Antelope to put food on the Family's table, however the regulation never really cover that.

    Of course that concept of putting food on the Family's table is not truly a viable alternative today except maybe for remote parts in Alaska.


    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 hand-written copy of the proposed Bill of Rights, 1789, cropped to show only the text that would later be edited and ratified as the Second Amendment
    Here is the amendment as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, the Secretary of State:[33]

    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.

  • Mixed information on our second amendment

    The 2nd amendment gives us protection against our own government. Not to be used on others as a form of defense. So unless you are expecting the militia to show up on your doorstep, it isn't very necessary. The military isn't that stupid because we already outgun them 4 to 379. Sure you can threaten someone who is intimidating, but I could just say that I had one, besides the fact that murder isn't protected by the constitution. With society pointing fingers at violent video games, people with mental illness (who are less likely to kill people and more likely to be assaulted), and even immigration. But for every 1 criminal stopped 36 people die from gun missusage.

  • No it doesn't

    The second amendment just makes people do what they want. They believe that with this right you can go around with your gun with you. You don't need a gun in your daily routine! Nobody is using it for protection but they're using it to kill innocent people and I know that's not everyone but without amendment 2 I know a lot of shootings and deaths wouldn't happen.
