Second Ammendment

#1


I fully believe that the second amendment is a good thing and that it ought to be upheld, but if you are literally walking down the street in a public area with an open gun near a lot of families, you are going to cause some concern and should expect someone to question your behavior. Not only that, but when the police (who you ought to be working with to protect public safety) question you as to why you are carrying a large weapon in a family area, you're going to sound suspicious when your response is "I'm not answering any more of your questions" and "it's my right."

Don't get me wrong. I'm not necessarily arguing that open carry is a bad thing. There have been numerous studies that have shown that civilians can have a major effect reducing casualties during mass shootings, which shouldn't be surprising. My overall feeling is that banning guns would do nothing to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands, but would prevent them from getting into the hands of those who intend to protect the public. The police can't be everywhere at every time. However, that said, refusing to cooperate with the police when you are causing a genuine suspicion is asking for trouble and is flat out irresponsible towards the public in general.

Although this is no new debate, what is your overall opinion of guns and gun control today?

I agree with what you said, Blake Smile there should be some laws in place, but the second amendment should be upheld. The right to bear arms is necessary if you want to protect yourself and/or your family.

The government always finds a way to tighten restrictions and limit things even more as time goes by. As such, I say we should return to the beginning and have no restrictions on gun ownership.

My thoughts also. This guy in the video was practicing his rights and this is the kind of crap people will have to put up with until more people step and do it also. I have my concealed weapons license put I have been a big advocate of getting Florida to allow open carry. Some days with shorts and a tee shirt it is about impossible to conceal unless I am carrying a Fanny Pack.
