Any time a mass shooting occurs in the United States, the topic of gun control is at the forefront of the conversation. In the wake of the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, students and teachers have already begun to take action through protests and boycotts, continuing a national debate on gun control in the prevention of such shootings.
On March 24, gun control advocates plan to take to the streets of Washington, DC in what has been named the “March For Our Lives”. “The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues,” the mission statement of the March For Our Lives reads.
While it is of great national importance to stop these mass shootings, AMAC believes that the rhetoric behind these activists’ gun control arguments is misguided.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution gives Americans the right to gun ownership and self-defense. If the government were to trample upon this vital freedom, they would be flagrantly and directly weakening our God-given, Constitutional liberties.
AMAC proposes we fight the March For Our Lives’ misinformation campaign by spreading awareness on why the Second Amendment is so integral to American life and to our national values.
