Americans have quite the romance with guns, and for good reason. Guns and gun ownership is what helped the colonies defeat the British in the American Revolution and helped us gain our independence. There is a deep history there. Not only that, but the founding fathers thought so highly of gun ownership that they even wrote in the right to bear arms as the 2nd amendment to this country’s constitution. There is no denying that guns certainly have had a huge impact on this country and that the right to gun ownership is secured by the constitution. However, like most political subjects, there are always two sides to each argument.
