‘“Good intentions without thought make for bad laws and I think we have a risk of that,’ said J. Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist and clinical professor at the University of California San Diego, who has studied rampage killers’’’ (Goode). “This point-of-view article discusses how the decades of case law interpreting and applying the other provisions of the Bill of Rights point to the troublesome approach to gun control and constitutional analysis” (Rivkin). “But you wouldn’t know from the current gun-control debate. Several states, for example are considering gun-insurance mandates modeled after those for automobile insurance. There is no conceivable public-safety benefit: insurance policies cover accidents, not intentional crimes, and criminals with illegal guns will just evade the requirement.
In a country full of violent crime, the United States continues to embody the gun as integral to it's protection and culture. While the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution grants the people the right to bear arms, the people must on the contrary protect themselves from those who bear them. In my view, guns give people a false sense of security and are more of a nuisance than a benefit. Guns are a threat to the peace and safety of society. Therefore, since it is unlikely that all guns will disappear in the United States, legislation must be enacted to ban and cease the further manufacture of the types of firearms involved in more violent crime than all others; handguns and assault-weapons.
Since law enforcers are not enough to ensure safety for every citizens, citizens should be allowed to protect themselves. Opponents of gun control like NRA also argue that gun control policies are for authoritarian models of government like the Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy (Rogers, 2013). These are governments that disarm the population due to the fear of being overthrown due to their bad governance and violation of human rights. Therefore, democrats should not be afraid of being overthrown by disarming citizens if they respect human
Its importance it literally unparalleled in our governing system and it is just a shame that in the worst case they are not even looking to reform the second amendment, rather destroy it and take all the guns. If the defense of the Constitution is our number one agenda then we as a nation should stop trying to downplay its everlasting
They are concerned that each step toward greater gun control will lead to the eventual confiscation of all firearms. Gun control opponent groups spend far more than gun control supporters on campaign contributions. Opponents of gun control, including the National Rifle Association, better known as the NRA, argue that the "right to bear arms" is guaranteed in the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and licensing restrictions penalize law-abiding citizens while in no way preventing criminal use of handguns. As the National Rifle Association puts it, “Guns Don’t kill People—People Do.” It is also argued that by making it difficult for guns to be bought and registered for the American public there is a threat to the personal safety of American families
Andrew Iglesias June 2, 2014 Period 1 ENG 2 Argumentative Paper Gun control has been a very controversial topic and with all of the relevant events it’s become bigger and people want an end to their right to bear arms but what people are failing to recognize is that guns don’t kill people…. People do and that’s just how it is. The right to bear arms should be kept protected because we should be able to feel free and also be able to protect ourselves. By putting an end to the right to bear arms we are basically just taking away a form of protection from the honest person and giving the “criminals” more power and might as well be arming them ourselves. “Criminals” will always find a way to get ahold of something they want, take a look at drugs for example it’s illegal but that hasn’t stopped these people from acquiring it.
In fact it is abnormal for the first world economy to still in the 21th century deal with the gun control problem. Pro-guns association act like America is in perpetual war with someone. They miss the old time when for no reason people could pull the trigger with no reason. Most of the industrialized nations don’t understand the American Status on gun. In France gun a really restricted because we know the horror of war and violence.
"The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose." (James Earl Jones, Online). Banning all or some weapons is not the solution to decreasing the increased gun related violence in the United States.
There are instances where owning a gun may dissolve a conflict before the police or anyone who could even remotely help would be able to arrive. Showing those criminals how they are viewed by pointing a gun back at them causes them to quaver in their choice to wreak havoc. As gun control is such a controversial topic that leads to arguments of whether it should be legalized or not, the idea that we would not be able to defend ourselves, should the need arise, is a horrific nightmare and almost a terrible reality. Legalizing gun control will only further the pain caused to our county through the many instances that have occurred in the past and recently. 6.
The reduction of the crime rates following the reduction of gun-related violence can be used to justify gun control. However, the official statistics does not support this assumption. The reasoning that guns cause crimes arises numerous disputations, as it does not consider that guns are just another mean of committing a crime. Pro-gun advocates usually assert, “Guns do not kill people; people kill people.” The Vice President, Wayne Lapierre argued that the best solution to the Newton Massacre was to allow citizens to own guns. He stated”The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” (Spitzer,
