The right to bear arms, Thankfully is granted to us by the constitution. It gives you the freedom to be independent and turns the average american citizen into a police man. Cities with gun control have much more murders than cities without, And the amount of times guns are used for self defense was shocking even for me. One of the greatest merits of the right to bear arms is not only the guns but the right. To quote Thomas Jefferson "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both. He who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither. Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither. " Kennedy himself said that he believes that the right to bear arms will always be necessary (and he lived in the time of modern guns ), And was an NRA life member. The argument that the guns today are more dangerous makes no sense. During the time that the constitution was written a flint lock would fight against another flint lock. It doesn't make a difference what type of gun you have, As long as its as powerful as the bad guy's you will be equal to him. Although allowing guns limits crime, Banning guns lead to anarchy. Look at London, Their murder rate is on the rise and they have banned everything (guns, Knives), But yet the more they ban the weapons of law abiding citizens the more the murder and crime rises. That how it works making guns illegal will make the only gun owners criminals. I hope whoever read this will hear my logic statistics and philosophical arguments. Thank you for reading

Okay so, I'm not against the right to bear arms, Im for stronger regulations, But this is just plain retarded.

'The right to bear arms, Thankfully is granted to us by the constitution. '
Not everyone live in the US, Dipshit. Be more specific. And anyway the constitution is about 250 years old, At that time the guns weren't as effective and took ages to reload.

'It gives you the freedom to be independent and turns the average american citizen into a police man. '
And possibly, If in the wrong hand, Of a armed criminal. Being independent isn't alway good too. A 5 years old child can be independent and have no parent to take care of him/her, Yet die.

'Cities with gun control have much more murders than cities without'
No. That is only true when talking about shithole countries, But that probably isn't because of right to bear arms, But rather due to other factors.

'It doesn't make a difference what type of gun you have, As long as its as powerful as the bad guy's you will be equal to him. '
Yeah, Not. When you can shoot some 1+ balls per seconds, You can easily kill 20 guys with 1 gun. It isn't comparable with a musket or a flintlock. The flintlock couldn't kill 20 people in 1 minute, You'd get beaten to death before. Now it easily can.

Anyway I know this is most likely a troll, But im bored. Cheers. Also giving some fancy quotes don't do anything.
