The NRA and other gun lovers use the Second Amendment as proof of their right to bear arms.
The Second Amendment is outdated and is of no use in today's society.
In fact, the Second Amendment was written as a right to bear arms for colonists to protect themselves against other colonists, Indians and to form a militia in case the British invaded farms and other private lands.
To use it today as a law is very silly.
If that is all the NRA and their followers have to justify their use of guns, then they will soon lose the fight over gun control.
It is a matter of time.
Guns that are used to kill other people such as pistols, assault weapons and others must be banned.
They have no business being in people's hands.
Our right to be free from gun violence far outweighs any right to bear arms.
We have had enough of it all.
