    Do you think the second amendment needs amended?

    I am from Scotland and doing a modern studies assignment at school on the second amendment of the US constitution and would like to gather views from US citizens.
    Could you tell me if you think the second amendment needs to be changed or not and give reasons why.
    Many thanks

    It really doesn't need to be changed- just strictly adhered to. As it was written, it provides plenty of rights- we just don't hold our politicians accountable for supporting and upholding them.

    Hell no. Don't touch my 2nd Amendment.





    Not unless you're going to strengthen and clarify it even further as an individual right not to be infringed upon.

    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.

    Yes, take out the underlined part, it will make it more clear.

    Yes it should be changed to this, so we can stop debating it endlessly:

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    You really need to clarify: "changed" TO WHAT.

    I'm happy to adopt a system more like the UK. Less guns means less gun deaths.

    question not clear/defined enough.

    amended to give less rights? NO
    amended to clarify or give more rights? yes

    Re: Do you think the second amendment needs amended?

    No, there is no reason that universal background checks can't pass with the 2nd Amendment in place, and the need for further gun control measures in order to reduce crime is exaggerated. Proper mental healthcare as a solution to violence in the United States is certainly underrated.

    But if you're doing this for an assignment, please find a source that shows a more accurate representation of America's views. Although the U.S. is a libertarian leaning nation in regard to international politics, the internet will lean far more libertarian than the average American voter.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
