The second amendment is perhaps the one of the greatest rights here in the United States of America. It is what every patriotic citizen can proclaim to foreigners as to why our country is better than theirs, to which the foreigner will usually reply with the statistics involving firearm violence.
The liberals are constantly trying to slowly increase gun control, which would eventually lead to outright banning them. They refer to the alarming amount of violence related to firearms, but even if you take away the weapons (criminals do not follow the rules), it does not fix the root cause of what is causing the violence. One cannot deny that doing so would only disarm the law abiding citizens and give criminals even more power.
