Why is the Second Amendment important to you?


I find it amazing that the right to bear arms is important to so many Americans. With all of the political and social issues that we need to address in our country today, why does the right to bear arms receive more attention than all of the other rights we have given up for the sake of security and saving peoples lives? Should we not be more concerned about poverty, the homeless, our economy, creating jobs, and preserving human rights?

    So the importance of the second amendment to you is to prevent being ruled by a dictator?

    Great comment, your points are well taken. I support the second amendment, I was curious about why it appears that debating an amendment that has not been touched as of yet is getting more attention than other rights that are being reduced or taken.

    So why is the second amendment important to you? This is not an answer to the question, it is only an assumption of my political stance and a confusing statement about losing individual freedoms. I am not debating or advocating gun control.
