Right to Bear Arms Teacher Pass

Say hello to controversy.

You won't find any machine gun-toting grizzlies here—the right to arm bears is a different lesson entirely. The right to bear arms is about the second amendment and one of the most contentious.

In this guide you will find

  • activities analyzing data on gun ownership and violent crime.
  • lessons exploring firearms' place in American culture.
  • articles exploring the always-prominent debate surrounding the amendment.

We advocate the right to bear knowledge, so you've got that covered.
