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.
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.
(Emotional arguments) Gun control is based on the faulty notion that ordinary American citizens are too clumsy and ill-tempered to be trusted with weapons. Only through the blatant abrogation of explicit constitutional rights is gun control even possible. “It must be enforced with such violations of individual rights as intrusive search and seizure. It most severely victimizes those who most need weapons for self-defense, such
I’m not even going to go into the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. It’s played out and tired, and ultimately unneeded in my argument. The basic and supposedly strongest argument for “more” gun control can be summed up with the following statement: Guns strengthen, embolden and promote higher crime rates. It has also been argued that the average citizen can simply not be trusted with such a tool. (Yes, they are a tool.)
Gun Control Laws in America Firearms should not be restricted, nor should their accessories or capabilities. Placing laws that take away from our right to bear arms would only give negative effect on the safety of the general public and the amount of crimes committed. People need guns to protect themselves from the people who want to corrupt their lives by using guns, regardless of the law. Gun control laws vary from state to state. In the republic of California, some would say we have some of the worst laws and restrictions in the country.
Joe Ma English 98/99 4/20/2015 gun control is needed in America According to the Second Amendment in the Constitution, the citizens have the right to possess and bear arms. But, this has remained an important issue since decades. Issues such as gun control and gun rights have remained a matter of debate and have been lobbying around in the Congress meetings. In my views, gun should not be existing in our society because guns are assault weapons, which have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. In order to keep our society safer, guns should be limited in America.
The new laws have provided an avenue to get back to our roots and protect our rights. Gun laws only limit the good guys and the bad guys don’t get their guns from a store, they come from the street and many people will die in the street if they can’t defend themselves.
Both sides have very interesting arguments that make them seem more attractive than the technique the other side uses to solve the issue. For example, gun control supporter believe that removing guns or limiting them even more than now, they could stop tragic events from happening. However, gun supporters, also have a persuading arguement. they say that if more of the right people had guns, then if something like this were to ever happen again then people would be prepared and ready to take action. While these issues become more and more a problem, people are beginning to speak up on each sides.
But if we as Americans have no way of protecting ourselves and the ones we love, then what is going to happen if the fight comes to our front door? What I mean is what if another country wants to come over here and take our freedoms away? There is a reason that there is an Amendment to give us the right to carry a gun. Everyone who opposes it, in my opinion isn’t thinking outside the box. Let’s look at the crime rate in our Nation’s Capital as opposed to a state that really has no control laws.
Gun Control There are Gun laws in the United States that regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition. These laws vary by state and are independent of federal firearms laws. There are just as many arguments for gun control as there are against gun control. In an ideal world where gun control was working, only people who will use guns for good will be allowed to possess and carry guns. However, the reality is that criminals will find a way to break gun laws and get guns illegally.
