Have gun laws in the United States become a major health concern and problem in the United States? As discussed in class the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights states that: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. The U.S. Constitution protects the right of an individual to keep and bear arms”. Forty-four states also have laws granting that Constitution right to their constituents.
