Taking away our 2nd Amendment is unconstitutional and puts our safety at a high risk! If our gun rights are taken the people protecting the U.S. citizens will eventually get hurt from terrorists, local criminals, or other enemies. For example, look to Australia and their crime statistics after their gun ban in 2002. In 2006 the number of assaults rose 49.2%, robbery rose 6.2%, sexual assault rose 29.9%, and the overall violent crime rate rose 42.2%. These numbers can be found on NCPA.org website. All in all, a gun ban will only make matters worse and create more violence in our country.
