The combined waste industry workforce is one of the largest employers in the United States. The only other occupation that is in your community more than your waste provider is your Mailman. The local law enforcement agencies welcome assistance from local waste providers to help fight crime in the community and support concealed carry gun permits. We spoke with several waste management companies that plan to encourage their workforce to apply for gun permits. Arwood Waste owner John Arwood stated; ” Most American do not even know that The Right to Bear Arms was mainly put into place to protect us from the Government” I belive if most people carried a concealed weapon the crime rate would be reduced by a large numbers.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “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.” Such language has created considerable debate regarding the Amendment’s intended scope. On the one hand, some believe that the Amendment’s phrase “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” creates an individual constitutional right for citizens of the United States. Under this “individual right theory,” the United States Constitution restricts legislative bodies from prohibiting firearm possession, or at the very least, the Amendment renders prohibitory and restrictive regulation presumptively unconstitutional. On the other hand, some scholars point to the prefatory language “a well regulated Militia” to argue that the Framers intended only to restrict Congress from legislating away a state’s right to self-defense. Scholars have come to call this theory “the collective rights theory.” A collective rights theory of the Second Amendment asserts that citizens do not have an individual right to possess guns and that local, state, and federal legislative bodies therefore possess the authority to regulate firearms without implicating a constitutional right.
