The idea of gun control in the State of Texas is absurd for all reasons already mentioned in addition to the independent nature of the culture in Texas. Much the same as in other states, guns are a tradition passed from father to son, a way of life. Even if some types of guns were outlawed, the logistical problem and practicality of collecting them would also be absurd.
According to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed (The Constitution, 2006). This, as were the entire Bill of rights, was added by the founders of the country so as to provide a clearer definition of the specific rights granted to all Americans. Gun control supporters consider the Second Amendment to be obsolete. or is intended solely to guard against suppression of state militias by the central government and therefore restricted in scope by that intent. or does not guarantee a right that is absolute, but one that can be limited by reasonable requirements (Krouse, 2002). However, they only question the need for people to own firearms that are not primarily designed for sporting purposes such as hunting.
Clearly, the right to own guns was of utmost importance to the Founding fathers given that it was listed second after the freedom of speech and religion was acknowledged in the First Amendment. The Founders recognized that by ensuring the right to own arms, the public would have the ability to defend themselves from that which may jeopardize their life, liberty or pursuit of happiness. This could include physical protection from animals and persons and or from a tyrannical government that endangered the freedoms outlined in the Constitution.
