USA. Arizona state. Avondale town. Cheryl Todd (L) is the owner and the manager of the gun shop with over 1'000 guns in stock. She stands behind the store's counter and laughs while advising a smiling young woman interested in buying a handgun for her personal protection. The woman holds a pistol Ruger LCR 9mm in both her hands. The Ruger is a light carry revolver to fit a concealed carry holster. The woman wears on her left wrist a silver bracelet with an american flag. A firearm is a portable gun, being a barreled weapon that launches one or more projectiles often driven by the action of an explosive force. Most modern firearms have rifled barrels to impart spin to the projectile for improved flight stability. The word firearms usually is used in a sense restricted to small arms (weapons that can be carried by a single person). The right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right protected in the United States by the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights in the Constitution of the United States of America and in the state constitutions of Arizona and 43 other states. 25.01.16 © 2016 Didier Ruef
