Brief Argument: Right to Bear Arms

The moral right to keep and bear arms encompasses our moral right of self-defense. I argue that the ownership and use of firearms is a reasonable means of exercising this right, our right of self-defense. The 2nd Amendment of The Constitution reads: “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.” Their defensive value of our sovereign rights, their defensive capability of defending  this Great Nation, The United States of America, from enemies foreign and domestic, implores a well regulated Government Structure to oversee that these rights are not infringed upon, and enforces the favorability of enacting civil rights to keep and bear arms. Therefore, states are morally obliged as a matter of Law to recognize basic liberties for firearm ownership and usage.

Thus,

1. If x is a reasonable means of self-defense as instituted by The Constitution, then people have a prima facie right to be allowed to own x.

 2. Firearms are a reasonable means of self-defense. Firearms are also an established allowance of The Constitution.

3. The right to bear arms must not be infringed upon as it is an inherited right, as outlined as The Second Amendment of The Constitution.

4. The Constitution defines what is law, and is The Supreme law of The United States of America.

5. The Supreme Court, state and local courts, Legislative Representatives and law officers are employed to administer and enforce The Laws of The Constitution, and other pertinent laws.

6. Denying The American People The Right to bear arms would be an infringement of their right, your right, my right, as outlined in The Constitution, under The Second Amendment, and therefore would be against Supreme Law.

 7. Therefore, people have a prima facie right to be allowed to own firearms.
