The Second Amendment: Let's Get "Armed" for Discussion



The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution continues to be the source of controversy in American society. Advocates of gun control believe that restrictions against the ownership of certain firearms are necessary to reduce gun related crime, while opponents argue that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual's right to possess a wide array of arms. In this WebQuest, we will explore the language and historical background of the Second Amendment, gun control legislation over the years, and gun ownership and gun violence statistics from around the world. Once we are "armed" with this information, we will have a class discussion of the arguments for and against gun control.
