To begin with, citizens should be allowed to carry guns because in doing so, the crime rate is lowered. In the 1990s, the number of guns in the U.S. increased greatly; however, the murder rate and accidental gun deaths decreased by nearly 40 percent.
31 states have laws allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons. There is approximately a 24 percent lower crime rate difference than states that do not have these laws. There is also a 39 percent lower robbery rate.
The Second Amendment states that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” A militia is defined as “the whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service.”
By hunting animals, people help control over-population. The most common animal to hunt for over population is deer. Controlling the population increases the amount of food available for the rest of its kind.
In summation, registered citizens of the United States of America should have the right to bear their own Arms. By doing so, the crime rate is lowered in most states and it is part of a person’s right, as listed in the Constitution. Also, most people do not misuse guns. Clearly, civilians should be able to own their own weapons in order to use them when needed.
