The 2nd Amendment clearly states, “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.” United States citizens are permitted within every state’s law to legally own and bear arms because of the this Amendment. There are specific case matters that have taken place because of this Amendment and each case has been given a different resolution.
There have been multiple issues with this particular Amendment because not all persons are following the law and abiding by it. What do I mean by that? Exactly what I said. When a person does not follow the law as in the matter of shooting someone they must deal with the consequences. Unfortunately there are political pigeons with the attitude guns kill people when it is a fact people kill people NOT the weapon.
There is a right to legally own and bear arms here in the United States of America and many politicians cannot handle the fact there are legal gun owners who do know how to protect themselves as well as their families. The State of Texas just passed the open carry arms. It is written Article I, Section 23:
“Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.” (Texas OpenCarry.org)
This law being passed now gives the right for Texas citizens who are of legal age to protect themselves (or others if need be) as they have the right to wear and bear arms openly in public view. A wonderful and quite successful process that was done for the State of Texas.
