First, let me begin by saying that I do not want this to turn into a debate about the right to bear arms. If you are against owning a gun, please excuse yourself from this thread. Now, with that being said, I need help coming up with a thesis statement for my research paper. The paper is about the second amendment and whether or not it gives an individual the right to bear arms. I need to take a stance on one side or the other, and obviously I stand on the pro-gun side of this debate. The problem is, I can't come up with the right wording for it. Why is college so very stressful? <--- Where is the "pulling your hair out" smilie when you need it?
