The second amendment assures the protection of all other amendments as well as maintaining sanctity of the United States Constitution.
Every American has a responsibility to carry a weapon to protect and defend themselves throughout the United States as per the second amendment.
A well trained individual with their personal firearm significantly reduces the chances of an accidental shooting and increases the chances of a successful outcome in a lethal confrontation.

In cities where it is mandatory for every home to have a weapon for the protection of their home and families, violent crime is virtually non-existent.
The highest violent crime rate in the nation is recorded in cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York where the gun laws are the most stringent.
Average response time of a law enforcement officer to arrive on scene after a crime has been reported is approximately 10 minutes.

I don’t carry a gun because I am evil, I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see evil in the world.

Loving God. Loving People.
