Guns Are American

So we can argue who exactly should be allowed to have guns in America.


But we can’t argue that the 2nd Amendment generally guarantees people the right “to keep and bear arms.”


Sure background checks are an important safety and security check to ensure we aren’t putting guns in the hands of criminals, terrorists, abusers, or mentally incompetent individuals. 


At the same time, people should be able to responsibly own and use them for hobby or self-defense. 


Some guns are even a work of art and not just a killing machine. 


Pictured here is an American Joe with etchings of USA and wings representing freedom and of course, the painting of the American flag for strength and patriotism. 


Not quite the golden AK-47 that Saddam Hussein sported, but nevertheless a beautiful and deadly .45 caliber one. 


With over 300 million guns in the USA, there is just about one for everyone. 


In America, there is a grand tradition of the Old West, but it’s also important to balance that with responsibility and safety. 😉
