The second amendment is there for a reason, but some people don't know that. The founding fathers weren't idiots, you know. If someone can't realize that thieves will find the guns and use them, then they're just crazy. Plus, a population with guns is one of the main reasons why we've lasted so long. If the military isn't in the area and an enemy attacks, then the local population could put a dent in the army on offense. Another benefit of guns is that we fought a war to get that right against Great Britain from 1775 to 1786. I'm not confident that removing the second amendment will do any good. Most school shootings would've been halted very quickly if the School Resources Officers would've done their job. In the Florida shooting, the SRO guy ran away. At my school, if the fire alarm is pulled, then the SRO officer is waiting where we go outside to get out of the building. The school shooting in Maryland was stopped by an SRO officer who shot the guy dead. You see, it's not our fault, but the fault of people who are too scared of losing their own life to stop more lives from being taken.
