Gun-related crimes and murders have been on the rise in the United States during the last ten years. This is a result of the Second Amendment of the United States’ Constitution, which is also known as the Right to Arms. This constitutional provision led to many Americans acquiring firearms for their personal protection (Kates and Gary 650). Notably, gun rights were intended to improve security in the United States, but they resulted in a rise in insecurity instead of serving their intended purpose. Linardopoulos explains that today Americans live in a state of fear and paranoia since mass murders and suicides have become prevalent in the region. Considering the growing statistics of gun crimes, gun rights should be taken away, an argument supported by Mill, Kant, and Aristotle’s philosophical arguments.
