In this country, I don't think the second amendment is unnecessary. Granted, there are a lot of people that I don't feel comfortable owning a gun. There are certainly people who own guns that shouldn't or don't need to. However, there are still plenty of places in this country where guns are necessary. Many areas still have the need for people to protect their land and their domestic or farm animals from dangerous wild animals. If I lived in an area that had a problem with bears or wolves, I would certainly want the right to own a gun. Unfortunately, we have taken this right to the extreme. A person should have the right to own a weapon to protect themselves but there must be a way to prevent people from turning these weapons on each other. Often, this means restrictions on the type of weapons, gun ownership, and ammunition.
