They say this and they defend it with the statement that if they are threatened with a gun they can defend themselves if they have a gun themselves. I have the belief that by controlling the use of guns you WILL see a difference in killing due of the use of firearms. Of course guns don’t kill people. A gun can’t just shoot randomly but need a person to fire it. But then again if the gun weren’t there the person who wanted to shoot somebody didn’t have the possibility to do so.
A certain type of gun should only be allowed to a certain person. Such as if your job is in the government or any other trusted position then you can be trusted. The sales representative or manger can also check for criminal back ground or anything suspicious about them. If this becomes a law then people who have committed crimes know not to come to a store and buy a gun or else they could be sent to jail. Less people will have an access to a gun causing fewer deaths to happen by gun violence conflicts.
What if that was one of your family member, wouldn’t you want them to be able to protect themselves? I would think so. Many people don’t think of gun violence this way but, it is very true. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” It’s the person behind the gun that causes the death and deviation known with gun violence. So gun control is not the answer to the problem.
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
Gun casualties and incidents throughout the country have woken the public up from its ignorance and shown them the danger guns can pose to society (Martinez, 2013). While some people want a complete blanket ban on the ownership of guns, others wants an easier access to guns so that every person may look after their own security. Part of what makes the term gun control a very controversial topic is that it’s used in a ambiguous way that does not explain the details of the issue and the demands, apart from literally controlling guns. The two prominent sides of the debate are the groups who ask for liberal gun laws that make it easier for a person to procure guns and conversely, there are groups who want to repeal the second amendment. 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.
One: to own firearm without being connected to the militia. Two: the use of firearm for self-defense within the home. Citizens have the right to protect themselves, but the rights to have guns can and have lead to more fatal crimes. "With guns, unlike knives or hands, rage and recklessness are likely to be translated cleanly and quickly into death" (Isaacson, 162). Guns are not made for anything else but to kill.
The Second Amendment is a law that was formulated to give the citizens of The United States of America the right to own and bear firearms. More gun control laws have been set in place as a deterrent for criminals to purchase firearms. Gun control laws are not the only way to avoid and protect criminals from purchasing firearms. Even with the gun control laws, debates, the Second Amendment and the Tiahrt Amendment, there is a lack of enforcement of these laws which has caused more violence. There also has not been a reduction in the number of criminals with guns.
Therefore, guns cannot be singled out and blamed for all of gun control. Instead of taking guns away from law-abiding citizens, we should take them away from the criminals; and deal with the root of it all that causes crime and violence, such as poverty, discrimination, unemployment, etc. Guns are not the real cause of the problem, the people are. So now we need to find a solution to the problem and let’s figure out what we could do to control gun violence. One solution about the problem may be to speak up about the problem.
More gun control laws will fix this and make it significantly harder for bad people to obtain guns. Others may think that it is an invasion of privacy to make people undergo background checks before obtaining a gun. Indeed, for a few people, background checks will be considered an invasion of privacy. However, it is very necessary. If there were not any background checks before owning a gun, it is possible for a terrorist or criminal to acquire a gun, like they can right now.
Would carrying a concealed weapon make every day citizens feel safer knowing they have something to defend themselves with instead of standing by and watching while criminals break in their homes or even rob them on the streets. What if having that weapon is a matter of life or death for you? The one question people toy around with is if the right to bear arms is unconstitutional. Some say that the second amendment is meant for only a well-regulated militia to have the right to bear arms, or that the fact of being able to carry guns is just silly. 2 Info The right to bear arms is presented in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
