The second amendment, or the right to bear arms, is the stronghold of our belief that you should be entitled to keep yourself protected with a suitable firearm and proper licenses. However, in order to uphold the second amendment, it is also our duty – as firearm holders – to ensure that we use them safely and with care. This means gaining the right license to carry weapons, following local regulations in Wisconsin, and knowing the safety measures necessary to keep your firearm in prime condition at all times.
What It Means
The second amendment clearly states that the general American public is owed the right to bear arms for personal protection and long-term use. What this means is that if you choose to own a firearm, you’re allowed to purchase and do so without criminalization or the potential for prosecution. What it doesn’t mean, however, is that you are allowed to use a firearm recklessly or to harm others. This also places the responsibility on you to ensure that your firearm is kept in your possession, secured from others, and only available when you’re likely to need it. You are the only one able to operate it without repercussions.
How to Use It
If you’re wondering how to implement the 2nd amendment into your everyday life, it’s still pretty simple, as long as you have the right tools and resources available. First, you must have legal rights to the firearm. Obtaining firearms illegally or without a license can lead to bans from legally owning any in the future, or it can limit you to the number or types of firearms you’re entitled to operate. If you use firearms for hunting purposes, this could be troublesome as there are certain types of firearms, over others, that work better in hunting settings (and you don’t want to be barred from using those)!
Your protection is important to us because we want the community to remain safe and secure and we want you, as a firearm holder, to contribute to that. That means you’re using firearms for your own protection or those around you, as well as for your property and overall wellbeing. Since Wisconsin can attract neighboring wildlife, you might find yourself needing to pull out your firearm from time to time to scare away something on the front lawn – such as racoons, possums, and occasionally (but hopefully not), bears!
Another aspect of the 2nd amendment that you should be aware is that the amendment itself is legally binding. That means your right to bear a firearm is upheld by local and national laws, protecting you and your right in times of need. The 2nd amendment, however, does not protect the right to misuse firearms recklessly, without care, or to harm others with. The intention of the second amendment was to give individuals a sense of protection, so if your firearm is not being used for recreational purposes or personal protection, it could be ruled as illegal use. To avoid this, use your firearm safely!
