Jeffrey Denning for explains some of the reasons that he loves the Second Amendment:

The right to bear arms is a blessing not given to many people in other countries. I knew a Russian immigrant many years ago who purchased a gun once he came to the United States, but never shot it. He said he bought it just because he couldn’t own one in the Soviet Union.

I can’t imagine not being able to carry a gun, let alone own one (or many). Those areas in the US that don’t allow people to have guns or carry them concealed or open-carry as a matter of personal security and protection are in violation of the laws of nature.

It’s wrong to withhold the right of anyone to defend himself or herself. The right of life and safety is a basic human need.
