This 2nd Amendment session will focus on the purpose behind the 2nd Amendment while exploring and understanding what is meant by the “Right to Bear Arms”.  Additionally, we will explore Gun Control, whether 2nd Amendment rights should continue to exist where mental health awareness plays a role, and states with tough and lax Gun Control Laws. We will analyze and debate some key Supreme Court rulings under the 2nd Amendment including some recent mass shootings, Stand Your Ground cases, and what could have been done to better prevent these shootings from occurring.
