  • not only do we have it so we can overthrow the government if it becomes twisted and overpowered, it can be used for selfdefense. I think if anything they should be regulated better. But taking the right away would be unconstitutional.

  • Self-defense is a natural right. The right to have and bear arms is a logical extension of that right.

  • Shout down weak-fish leftist traitors.

  • There IS such a right in the United States, anyway. I've always been "a lover, not a fighter" so I never developed the skill or strength to fight well. I'm too fat and slow to be "a runner." I'm too old to heal well. I already HAVE a right to defend myself; the instinct to do so is evidence that God gave me that right and duty. Only the government stands in the way of ANYONE defending him or herself.

  • Rights do not exist insomuch as someone can take them away. I do not like the nannies in power regulating firearms though.

It is hard to answer as asked. There is no reason to have a right, not necessarily. Without the 2nd there would still be legal guns, just no constitutional right. So, no I don't think it is good or necessary as a right. I think the right has interfered with any rational handling of the law. Further, as a states decision, more granular laws could be developed.

It should be allowed. The gun is not the thing that kills people, it's the people behind the gun. The laws should be stricter on how to get a gun and a better background check, but banning guns is just plain stupid considering most people own a gun for self defense.
