The Right to Bear Arms/Permits

The issue that I would like to talk about is the second amendment. As we all know the second amendment gives us the right to bear arms. However, over the past couple of years there has been a lot of people killed in public places by guns. I honestly do not believe that everyone is mentally equip to carry guns. For example, in 2007 at Virginia Tech a man shot and killed thirty-three people on campus. The gun man was going from classroom to classroom opening fire on any and everybody he wanted to. In addition, after the gun man killed everyone that he could, he turned the gun on himself and ended his own life. Now does that sound like someone who was mentally capable of carrying a fire arm? There are debates being held around the city that discusses should people be allowed to carry a fire arm without a permit. I honestly believe that this is one of the worst things that can happen if this gets approved. If there are massacres at universities from just one gun man loosing his mind, there is no telling what other bizarre scenarios might happen if no one needs a permit. The second amendment gave us the right to care guns. I do not believe that  when this amendment was made people were going around shooting public places up with guns. In addition, I do not believe that they factored in that some people might be mentally stable of carrying a gun. Guns are suppose to be used to protect yourself and others from those who put you all in possible fatal situations. Also, if people were able to carry guns without a permit, crime rate could possible rise. If people do not need gun permits for guns then that means that there will be more guns on the streets and in public places. Lets just think about that for a second. This means that possible anyone can grab a gun and go on a shooting rampage through out a school, movie theater, etc. On July 20, 2014 a man by the name of James Holmes just walked into the movie theaters. When James walked into the movie he opened fire on everyone not carrying who he shot or who he killed. He was wearing protective gear from head to toe. The guns that James used was an AR-15 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and a .40-caliber handgun.  James Holmes that day killed 12 people and 58 were injured. James Holmes was charged with 152 counts. The most craziest part about this is he plead not guilty on behave of he is insane. The judge accepted Holmes’ plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Holmes was  taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo .  In the courtroom James’s hair was really messy and a bright orange. James probably was crazy but if everyone is able to get the chance  to shoot up a room, how many of them would claim insanity as well? To conclude, I do not believe that everyone should have the right to bear arms nor do I believe people should be able to purchase guns without a permit.
