Thesis Proposal/Abstract:
Identity, who we are as individuals. Who am I? I am an American, a Christian, a country girl raised in the plains of the Midwest, but to me most importantly, I am a gun owner. I was raised to know how to fend for and protect myself and not to rely on anyone else for it. Therefore, I am a very strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment right as Americans and feel it is not only dangerous but also un-Constitutional to try and strip those rights away from Americans. I am not arguing that every person must own and operate guns, but I am saying that if you don’t believe in having them, don’t buy one. “Amendment II 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.” (United States Constitution)

I am not claiming that every person should own and operate guns, but I am saying that if you don’t believe in having them or are not comfortable with them, then don’t buy one. As a gun owner, I know that I am not a bad person, nor do I ever intend to use my firearms in a negative manner, and I am merely aspiring that everyone on the outside sees that aspect...
