Letter: Sixth-grader backs Second Amendment

by The Advocate  |  published on March 16, 2013

My name is Michael Conger and I’m in the sixth grade at Cypress Heights Academy. I’m also a First Class Scout in Troop 888.

The Founding Fathers of our country wrote the Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment, known as the “right to bear arms.” We have the right to bear arms because of this.

Many men from 1776 to today have fought and died to keep that right. My grandfather fought in World War II to keep that right. People who abuse that right in massacres, shootouts and terrorism should be locked up.

If we don’t have the right to bear arms, we can’t defend ourselves against those people. We have the right to protect ourselves and our families, and, in my opinion, we should be able to keep it.
