Published on

The second amendment gives all Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Second amendment rights are fundamental to the rights enjoyed by all Americans: the right to have a means of self defense and the ability to secure food from the wild. Fast food restaurants and modern conveniences have taken away the necessity to be able to hunt down lunch and cook it on an open fire. Historically, there was not a Big Mac on every corner and individuals had to be more resourceful to find lunch.

The second amendment hunting or self defense

  1. 1. Second Amendment Rights Fundamental To Being An American The second amendment gives all Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Second amendment rights are fundamental to the rights enjoyed by all Americans: the right to have a means of self defense and the ability to secure food from the wild. Fast food restaurants and modern conveniences have taken away the necessity to be able to hunt down lunch and cook it on an open fire. Historically, there was not a Big Mac on every corner and individuals had to be more resourceful to find lunch. Second Amendment rights and freedom can be loosely construed The Second Amendment doesn’t distinguish between permissible uses of the guns,.where the guns may be carried, or the actual intent of the gun owners. The U.S. Constitution leaves that up to individual interpretation by the citizens. Because the founders of this country left the details incomplete, it appears that citizens are to interpret that freedom for the good of all. Second Amendment freedoms are guaranteed The freedoms so highly treasured by Americans were borne of the freedoms guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Freedom was bought back in the colonial days at a high price, and the founding fathers were hesitant to take away the privilege to hunt for food or act in self-defense. It is now hard to conceive of the daily threat that settlers faced from wild animals or even other humans. The early inhabitants of the United States faced the constant threat of starvation or ambush by another person who wanted to get what wasn’t his. Society was more lawless and less civilized in the past. Citizens today have to acknowledge that If the government tries to take away that basic freedom upon which America was founded, that will potentially diminish to the rest of Americans’ hard-won liberties. Citizens have to maintain a difficult balancing act to maintain Second Amendment rights in the face of modern concerns. Using the Second Amendment to enable hunters to enjoy their recreation or to allow an individual to act in self-defense is more in keeping with the spirit of our founding fathers and the early American government. Considering the issue historically, there is precedent for allowing both uses to coexist under the guise of Second Amendment rights.. To diminish the freedoms granted by Second Amendment rights would be to erase the fundamental freedoms for which the country stands. Too much blood was shed to give up on these rights. Gun control is one thing; abridging the Second Amendment right to have and use guns is an entirely different matter.
