I personally am a strong believer that an “ideal society” should have no guns; nevertheless crime is a big problem to the citizens of our society and guns are necessary. Therefore, it is not recommended that we ban guns completely. The most pragmatic thing to do is to reduce the availability of guns and make it difficult to procure them by making sure that they are given only to people who are mentally capable of handling them. There is a definite need to ban guns since their liberal usage leads to large-scale public massacres, which are suited for the field of war, not civilized society. Weapons like automatic rifles and assault weapons are tools created with the purpose of mass killings.
1 December 2010 A Gun Free World "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." (U.S Constitution) An American citizen's right to own guns is upheld by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. However, many people feel that the amendment is outdated, and that gun control is extremely important in an American society. I believe that Americans do need gun control based on facts. I think that there are too many crimes being committed in the United States because of our right to “bear arms”.
2 Info The right to bear arms is presented in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The amendment states: "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." Many argue that the Second Amendment gives individuals the right to own guns, and that the government should honor this right. Others say that the amendment was meant to apply only to states' rights, instead of individual rights. They argue that gun ownership contributes to high levels of crime and say that the founders of the Constitution did not intend to make
So gun control is not the answer to the problem. Law Enforcement needs to crack down on criminals and the illegal sales of firearms to help elevate the problems with the death or homicide rate. The normal everyday work class people do not need to be punished for the acts of criminals and drug dealers. If gun control were to take effect and guns were outlawed it would still not solve the problem at hand. It wouldn’t solve the problems because only the outlaws
Politicians have stated thy will introduce new laws wanting tougher background checks, forced registration, and outright banning of military looking firearms. All these types of new laws will cut down on crime and make this country a safer place. But I believe the way to protect against a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. First of all on the issue of it will cut down on violent crime, who are they kidding criminals rarely obey laws; studies show most criminals acquire guns through friends or theft. Adam Lanza the shooter at Newtown stole the guns he used from his mother.
Gun control laws have become such a huge controversy in the United States due to the fact that citizens believe their Second Amendment right is being taken away from them. In my eyes, I believe that extended gun control measures should be taken to ensure that access to assault weapons should be limited to certain people. I believe one deserve a well rounded background check to see if any mental health issues are visible. I also believe you have the right to own a weapon and the government is not trying to take away your hunting rifles, personal permitted handguns, etc. They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to.
Jeremy De La Cruz Pre AP English 2B Mrs. Brogan 23 April 2013 Word Count: 500 Will Gun Laws Stop Future School Shootings? The saying “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” has always been said. With recent school shootings, many people are wondering if gun laws will prevent future shootings. Gun laws will only keep guns out of the hands of bystanders who could stop the shooting, and allow criminals to easily kill innocent children. Gun laws pertaining to schools prevent people from saving more lives and stopping shootings in the making.
When you think of gun control, you automatically think of someone trying to take away your right to express the 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms); however, this ideal is wrong due to our lack of knowledge about the term. Gun control refers to the laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms. (In other words, they are the glue that allows us to exercise this right, but in a safe way). The term above does not lead us to do away with our democratic rights, but rather provides a protection to the lives of people in our own land. Every single day someone dies here in America due to guns, whether it is by suicide, school shootings, or just even children playing around at home with an open gun at home.
In conclusion, I am currently against gun control because I want to make sure that innocent citizens can have access to guns and be able to protect themselves against criminals when they need to. Until the government can find more effective ways to control criminals’ access to guns, I will be against gun
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
