‘A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.’ This is the notorious second amendment of The United States of America. Right to bear a firearm is a subset to right to life because to protect your life from a specific danger, sufferer must be equipped with the right weapon to protect themselves. But the challenge is whether a prudent citizen is intelligent enough to exercise his or her right. A flawless civilization is generally seen as a society with no restrictions, a society with absolute freedom, a society where everyone, despite their differences, is treated equally but, is this visionary society a perfect fit in the current era? This paper believes in restricting freedom of individuals for the benefit of the public. The paper does not promote dictatorship or inequality but rather protects the society from misusing their own rights to harm themselves and their fellow citizens. The aim is to analyze the deleterious effect which originates from absolute freedom.
