While AWR Hawkins explains that there’s no relation between gun control and crime, and that gun control might possibly be directly related to more violent crimes resulting in death. * Each author takes a strong stance on both of their views. Boseley takes a strong stance that more guns in the US is actually the cause of more gun related deaths, while Hawkins writes that more gun control leads to higher death rates. * The intended audience for both authors would be readers that take their side. Boseley’s audience would tend to be people who agree that heightened gun control in the US would lead to less deaths in major cities like Detroit or New York.

Though there are people that say that the right to bear arms is only self-defense, but in reality who will there be that you are going to need a gun to defend your self against? In the United States there are 89 guns for every 100 people, on average. Meanwhile in countries such as Austria, Norway, Sweden, Germany and France there are about 30 to 32 guns for every 100 people.

Topic: The increase of gun control legislation decreases civilian safety. Guns are not for everyone. When dealing with guns, it is key to maintain the control on this lethal weapon.

They also carried weapons on them for protection against Indians or wildlife that lived all around them. There was also some thought about over-regulation weapons; however, to most people this in a breach in the 1st Amendment. From what I gathered I believe we should regulate more regularly. If we keep hounding people with tax and registration on weapons they will become tiresome and just want to give up their weapons and overall will lower the crime rate of accidents with weapons involved.
