Yes , we all know that the second amendment of the American constitution makes it a right for all Americans to own guns. However this has led to so many crimes because it's made it easier for criminals to get hold of firearms. Massacres have occured because of this right to own guns. For example, the virginia tech massacre. It's so easy to get guns , that a student can walk into a school and murder 30 people before committing suicide. 20/20 has also revealed that a single person can go to certain venues where they sell lots of guns and buy over 20 guns in the space of an hour. Wow ... too easy? So tell me what you think. Should we be allowed to have guns to this extent?
