image for Gun Rights Supporters Call for New Amendment
NRA also supports the right for gun owners to choose not to be properly trained.

WASHINGTON, DC - Around 30 protestors gathered in DC on Friday, calling the Second Amendment "long-outdated" and asking Congress to do something about it.

The right to bear arms has been defended by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and many gun rights supporters, who have cited the Second Amendment as the constitutional basis for the right.

"Our Founding Fathers gave us the right to bear arms so we could defend ourselves from governments," said John, an NRA member who organized the rally.

"Now that governments have developed technology such as missiles and fighter jets, how are we to keep them in check with just our assault rifles?

"In fact, we find that we have absolutely no use for these assault rifles."

A protestor cited the Democrats, who had also pointed out that the Second Amendment was outdated in the past.

"We need to be able to fight off our enemies," gun rights supporter Ali Sue said, sipping on a light beer at the rally.

"How will I be able to defend my family from F-16s unless I am equipped with an adequate surface-to-air missile system?"

Several gun control advocates showed up across the street to stage a counter-protest.

"Virginia Tech, Aurora, Wisconsin, and now Texas A&M," said an advocate. "Haven't we had enough?"

One of the NRA protestors agreed.

"These shootings are the reason we need new laws or a new Amendment," he said.

"We the People need to think about upgrading our weaponry so we can defend ourselves.

"America will only be safer if everyone had a nuke, at the very least. That's how we won the Cold War, right? Except in this case, everyone wins."
