Our closing sentence is; we believe that Americans should have the right to bear arms; Not just as a protection gear, but also as a well- being, you don’t know when someone is going to attack your home, or your family.

Also because of these three points;

Invasions from foreign countries are not an issue, because these countries know that many American citizens are well- armed.

The second amendment reduced the number of crimes due to the fact that everyone has the right to defend themselves.

Because of the second amendment people get the same right and advantage as criminals.

This amendment shouldn't be removed because it was created by the Constitution and “every person on the planet has the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them, exploit them, harm them, or kill them.” The right to bear arms is a human right

As said before; Policemen cannot always protect everyone all the time, Americans with guns have the advantage that if they get attacked, and policemen is not there, or for whatever reason they cannot protect them, these people are able to protect themselves from invaders.

Exactly you just stated it; "Second Amendment was made for the sole purpose of preventing a tyrannical government from overtaking the people."

Meaning if they ban the guns then the government will become a tyranny because they are taking a constitution amendment off. Quote from George Washington; “When government takes away citizens’ right to bear arms it becomes citizens’ duty to take away government's right to govern.”

I already stated but I will stated again; The right to bear arms is Amendment 2, it was created by the Constitution in if the government takes it away, it will be the same thing as taking away Amendment 1, the freedom of speech, religion…

“I began to accept that the gun itself posed no danger -- any danger was in the hand and heart of the beholder.” Said Tracy Scarpulla in CNN.news. “I learned I had nothing to fear and a lot to gain from owning a gun.”

After the Sandy Hook shoot out parents started changing their minds; Robin and other parents who keep firearms in the home say the lesson of the Sandy Hook tragedy is not that we need more gun control but that we need more parental involvement in children's lives. http://edition.cnn.com/2012/12/20/living/guns-children-home/index.html

A quote that George Washington said: “When government takes away citizens’ right to bear arms it becomes citizens’ duty to take away government's right to govern.”

So why would the government ban guns? When the government knows how important guns are to the safety of their citizens.

1 point

As I said before, if we ban guns, then criminals will just switch into others weapons such as; knives, baseball bats, deadly drugs, hit and runs with cars, gasoline and matches, and even their own hands.

Another source that goes against your point; having a gun at home increases the chances of your family being safe;

A woman was saved by her family of gun owners — her husband and two sons — after a man attacked her in her Gonzales, Louisiana driveway and tried to kidnap her Sunday evening. “We all have rights as citizens, and I say stand up for them. Don’t back down from nobody if you are right.” http://dailycaller.com/2014/12/03/family-of-gun-owners-saves-mom-from-attack-in-her-driveway-video/

If it wasn’t for the arms the family owned this women would have been kidnapped and would have been mistreated by the kidnapper who was in drugs during the accident.

But it comes from a news report, that makes it a pretty reliable source. http://edition.cnn.com/2012/12/20/living/guns-children-home/index.html

My point was that policemen do more crimes involving guns and firearms, but we cannot just ban policemen from owning guns or other firearms. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/02/24/guns-and-new-york-times-why-shouldnt-americans-be-able-to-defend-themselves.html

Guns are a part of the Constitution, this is part of the culture and government of USA, so if the government removes Amendment Two, well why shouldn’t they remove other, as they have the right to remove one Amendment, they should also remove others.

The right to bear arms is Amendment 2, it was created by the Constitution in 1788 if the government takes it away, it will be the same thing as taking away Amendment 1, the freedom of speech, religion…

“Every person on the planet has the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them, exploit them, harm them, or kill them.” The right to bear arms is a human right http://humanevents.com/2012/04/18/the-right-to-bear-arms-is-a-human-right/

We can't just remove the second amendment, and there is no media supporting those ideas you just listed.
