Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, is a firm believer in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Many people across America have conflicting views on this Amendment. Some love it. Some hate it. Some think it is okay but just not for them. Some are indifferent. Some are afraid of it. Some think it should go away and some think it should stay. I wonder why people want to do away with the Second Amendment. Why would we want to take away such a strong tool of self defense? Why would we want to put ourselves at risk?
Sure, at face value, the Pro Gun Control argument sounds awesome. “Getting rid of guns will reduce crime and keep us safer.” Who doesn’t want to be safer? I know I would love to live in a place with zero crime and not have to worry about walking down the street late at night, clutching my purse against me and looking over my shoulder to make sure I am not being followed. That would be great! But is getting rid of guns really going to get me to that place? If it can, I would really like to see how.
“If guns are outlawed, there won’t be any risk of getting shot, because people will not own them.” Can the owners of this argument please explain to me why I have seen people waste away in front of me due to drugs? I cannot understand how that happened. I also do not understand why parents worry about their children getting wrapped up in drug use. Drugs are illegal. People “shouldn’t” be about to get a hold of them if they are illegal… much like guns, right?
I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be naïve and believe that these gun control advocates have the right idea. Bad guys are going to break the law. If guns are outlawed, why would that stop them from getting a hold of them? All it will do is put us at risk, because our attackers will have guns and we will have something less powerful or effective.
Yes, guns in untrained hands are dangerous. But guns in well trained hands provide a great avenue for self defense and family protection. What we should be focusing on is getting people gun training instead of taking away a means of protection. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, Nevada, offers the greatest gun training in the world and can be affordable for almost every budget. Ignatius Piazza has worked hard to offer the best quality gun training and to offer it to people of every income level. Lots of gun training is expensive. Front Sight makes it possible for people with normal jobs (like myself) to get better gun training than even the most expensive places out there.
The Second Amendment grants us the right to bear arms… but along with that right comes responsibility. Front Sight will help you make the responsible decision of getting gun training and getting your family trained. Let’s do our part to keep America safe. Let’s get gun training and really know how to use a gun for self defense, instead of just owning one because we can.
