However, other people see them in a completely different light. To some people a gun has meant the difference between life and death. There have been several instances where homeowners have had to protect themselves from home intruders with their guns. If, these individuals hadn’t have had a gun many of them would have never survived, they would have been killed by their intruders. What if that was one of your family member, wouldn’t you want them to be able to protect themselves?
The debate will go on for however long the existence of guns are intact. The fact of the matter is that criminals do not and will never observe the laws. Regardless of the ceasing of guns or immensely regulated gun laws, there will always be a way to obtain one. So maybe owning a gun is good for the public so that one can defend oneself against criminals, or the absence of guns will reduce gun related crimes, nobody will ever know because things are changing constantly. Of course, society will never go back to swords but it’s one’s choice to keep a gun in the house that your family lives in.
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.
Gun Control On December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, twenty year old Adam Lanza walked into the elementary school with a gun. He shot and killed 26 people, 20 of which were children, using a semi-automatic fire arm. In 2007 at Virginia Tech, a senior at the school, walked into the school and killed 32 people with a semi-automatic weapon. Both of these tragic events were caused by a single gunman with a gun in an educational facility. Both of these events sparked many debates on the topic of guns and how to stop these events from happening.
A bullet that can go through a deer but also be shot 400 rounds per minute such as the AK-47 should not be allowed to own by a citizen. It is not mandatory to go through a safety course to own a weapon so if someone were to buy an assault rifle or to own one so someone who may feel threatened could ultimately kill many innocent lives because of their ignorance towards these powerful guns. These assault rifles which spray multiple bullets at a time would just make the sport of hunting not a sport anymore. Anyone can go out and kill a deer by using a weapon that can shoot multiple rounds a minute but it takes skill and practice to get that one perfect shot and make it count which makes
I am one that is for stricter gun laws in America, as it is scary to think of future generations where gun ownership is just as common as owning a car. On the Whitehouse website, the first thing that popped up when researching about gun laws and violence with weapons was, “Now is the time to do something about gun violence.” Now to me, this sounds like congress has every intention to do “something” about guns and gun violence, but what? After the Sandy Hook shooting, in Barack Obama’s speech he mentioned that it was an “obligation” for America to do something to prevent events like this from occurring again. The site also says, “Most gun owners are responsible and law abiding.” The key word here is “most”. What about the others who are not responsible and law abiding?
Gun Control = Crime Control Jamie Cain Eng/102 10/01/2013 Mary-Angie Salvá-Ramírez, Ph.D. Since the beginning of time in the United States guns have been a part of the American tradition as a means of a protection and for hunting and sport. Today however, the use of guns has significantly changed. Many people feel that these gun control laws violate American citizen’s second amendment “the right to bear arms”. However, controlling the distribution and sales of registered guns and owners is necessary because of the criminals that use for them for violence and the homicide rates we have in this nation today.
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.
Persuasive Essay: Gun Control There is a debate among American politics and U.S. citizens that draws passion among those who feel strongly about the issue; gun control. Gun control is an issue that has affected some individuals personally, and individuals often strongly support it or oppose it. A series of tragic events in the past few decades have raised questions about whether gun control is necessary to stop horrific shootings. Recently there have been questions raised about a possible ban on assault rifles being reinstated. With the election of President Barack Obama, some that oppose that weapons ban are fearful of the impending changes in the law, which has affected gun owners such as me.
The word infringed means to inflict upon a right or privilege. I see it clear that to control what guns we can own and the features they posses is clearly an infringement of our right to own a firearm. Gun control laws in the United States vary from state to state; places like New York and California are notorious for having the tightest grip on gun owners and what they are allowed to do with their guns. These laws have hurt the areas by taking away guns for
