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
Running Head: SHOULD GUNS BE BANNED IN THE U.S Should Guns Be Banned In The U.S February 25,2013 Charles Vlcek SSE0050 Fundamentals Of English Should Guns Be Banned In The U.S Throughout history gun control has been a controversial issue. Some people argue we have the right to keep guns for personal use while others argue gun violence is out of control, and the only way to stop the violence is to ban guns for all citizens except law enforcement officials. I do not believe banning guns is the answer for the following reasons; the second amendment gives us the right to keep and bear arms, guns do not kill people people do, and banning guns in Australia and the U.K did not work and it will not work here. Our founding fathers wrote the constitution over two hundred years ago and gave us the right to keep and bear arms it is the second amendment to our constitution, and has stood all this time. Banning guns would take this right away from us law abiding citizens “The constitution expressly forbids the government from limiting our second amendment rights in any way” (Debate.org,2013 p10) Guns do not kill people people do, and banning guns would just make things worse.
The authors' main argument, is against individuals that are not trained to carry arms, nor do these individual carry arms to maintain a free state. But they believe it's their right. People who claim to believe in the "Right to Bear Arms," doctrine think that it refers to individuals. However there are a lot of people that misinterpret this document, they believe this document gives the individual the right to keep and carry arms. In today's society guns are not necessary unlike the uncertainties people had of the new frontier, there are no longer hostile forces to contend with, nor are there any fierce animals, therefore unrestricted gun laws are becoming a disaster, in this society.
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
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.
Opponents of the policy, however, argue that this will deny rightful owners of guns a chance to utilize this tool in other activities. As the debate rages on, it is unclear which side of the debate will carry the day. However, it is clear that guns are a major aspect in the lives of Americans. This paper explores gun control and posits that such a policy will not reduce crime. Gun Control refers to the control in ownership of firearms by citizens.
Concealed Weapons The U.S. Government cannot guarantee our safety, protecting ourselves and our families is our personal duty. The government should not affect the ability for responsible citizens to protect and defend themselves and their loved ones. One may feel safer being armed, even if they never need to draw their weapon. I feel we should have the right to carry concealed handguns, because we deserve the right to protect ourselves and our families, especially when the government cannot. According to a report by statistician, William Sturdevant, “A majority of adults who legally carry concealed handguns are law-abiding citizens, who do not misuse their firearms”.
After analyzing three separate articles, I intend to point out specific fallacies in each of them. In Ann Coulter’s article, "Virginia Tech gun ban made campus safe -- for the killer", she discusses her opinion on the need to have armed students and faculty on campuses. She goes on to say that by having the gun free zones armed, it would help reduce the amount of casualties should another shooting like Virgina Tech happen. This falls under the hasty generalization fallacy. There is absolutely no proof that an armed student or staff member could in fact save life, because there is no documentation to prove this claim.
“The right to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” This statement, clearly written, was made by our founding fathers to protect our rights as Americans in the year 1791. Today, our right to keep and bear arms is under attack by liberals and politicians. However clear the second amendment may be, people today still try to contest this constitutional right and assert that Americans should not own guns, or that restraints must be put on those that choose to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms. Gun control is an unnecessary evil because guns provide the American people a means of defending themselves against those who are intent on harming you, the fact that beginning guns will not keep them out of criminal hands, and that guns
