The 2nd Amendment IS Your Right to Carry!
For quite some time many in government have worked to create ways to undermine our right to keep and bear arms. The logic varies, but all try to convey a notion that somehow gun laws reduce gun violence. Even if that were true—it’s never been true—once all the guns had been purged from society, Congress would have to get to work removing baseball bats and kitchen knives as well. The weapon is never the source of the violence.
The best way to control guns in the hands of criminals, is to put guns into the hands of honest people around them. Our right to keep and bear arms is a right to carry a loaded weapon, openly or concealed. It is not merely the right to have a firearm in the nightstand, next to your bed.
Please, do not mistake my statement, “the 2nd Amendment IS your right to carry”, to mean that right comes from the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment was the founders way of saying that no government, be it federal, state, or local, can prevent you from defending yourself. Every individual on the planet has a natural right to defend themselves, by whatever means.
