You’ve to find out who has the access to those guns, especially when people are irrational, deranged and so forth. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) stated “the worst thing we can do is create a false sense of security. Graham also states that he’s open o establishing a commission to help members understand what they could logically do to prevent mass murder. Sen. Marco Rubio (R. Fla.) said there were “specific ideas” that could be debated, but he is committed to protect what is a constitutional right. Analysis Republicans don’t agree with the assault weapon bans.
We face a problem of full accountability, many owners purchase weapons without thought of receiving training for or how to secure the weapon. It is proven that “cultural orientations condition individuals’ beliefs about risk through culturally partisan forms of trust” and that “The people they trust, naturally enough, tend to be the ones who share their worldviews” (Braman and Kahan 576). Gun owners and gun controllers continually profess to the need/no need of the weapons with the many excuses but when paired down to the most basic reasoning it is “that insufficient gun control will expose to many innocent persons to deliberate of accidental shootings; and that the excessive gun control will render too many law-abiding citizens vulnerable to the violent predations” (Braman and Kahan 577). The opposition to legalized gun owner ship responds to the claims of need with their own reasoning to remove all weapons with the exceptions of government officials by reiterating with the statement that “the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution is targeted towards
It also doesn’t make sense to blame an inanimate object rather than the individual behind it and the reasons why gun violence occurs. A gun is a tool, not unlike a car or knife. When a law-abiding citizen makes the decision to purchase a gun, it is usually for the purpose of self-defense. It evens the playing field between a victim and a potentially dangerous criminal. In the story “They Each Had a Gun,” Hannah LaMarca was robbed and assaulted with no way to defend herself.
It will not stop people from buying guns off of the black market and using them like they always have. The federal government regulations make it very difficult for the common man in crime driven neighborhoods to buy a gun, while the thug, under any garb, continues to procure arms illegally. While a segment of the law guarantees individuals the right to own guns, another amendment makes owning a handgun difficult and many people feel that their constitutional rights are being denied (Borade). There will always be murders and killing in our world but gun control is not the answer. If they take away guns, they might as well ban knives alcohol and other dangerous things, but would also be nearly impossible to achieve.
In addition, Shaffer effectively defends her idea that banning handguns will have no effect on reduction of violent crime, but may actually increase instances of gun crimes. This is due to the fact that civilians would no longer be able to defend themselves effectively. The second article, “Gun control standoff” both sides remain unsolved in bitter debate. Gun control continues to bring out the worst in public opinions. Jost states: “Gun control supporters blame the high rate of violent crime and the large number of gun accidents and suicides on the easy availability of firearms and
Not Needed: Strict Gun Control Laws Many people today think we need to have stricter laws about gun control, and although many crimes are committed in the United States every day, they are committed by using various instruments to carry out these wrongdoings. One such weapon is the firearm, and laws have been enacted to reduce the sale of such weapons to the scofflaws, and protect the law-abiding citizen for some time. Some people believe the laws in effect now don’t do enough to keep the guns out of criminal’s hands. The problem is these people don’t follow the law, so they go behind the scenes to purchase these weapons, and then use them against the law-abiding citizens these laws were passed to protect. The gun control laws in this country
INTRODUCTION The following report is a description and analysis of case Fallas v Mourlas  at Supreme Court of New South Wales- Court of Appeal Decisions. The incident occurred during a spotlighting Shooting recreational activity where Mr. Fallas accidently shot his friend Mr. Mourlas in the leg while trying to unjam a loaded gun. Just like any case in court, the plaintiff and the defendant’s lawyers presented arguments in order to defend their clients. The reason for the arguments was based upon government laws regarding danger in recreational activity, shadowing cases involving similar accidents in the past, facts leading up to the incident and contextual evidence. FACTS * Fallas (the defendant) and Mourlas (the plaintiff) were with two other friends on a nocturnal spotlighting recreational activity.
This is just another example of people putting the blame where it doesn’t belong. In conclusion carrying a gun doesn’t make you a killer it make you a person who can only be persuaded through reason and not through force. And, by banning the sale and position of handguns you are only making people easier targets for mugger and thieves. And only a government that is doing something that its people would not agree with would want to ban an item that the common person uses to protect
If the right people carry guns it would make for a safer community. Gun control, in some places can help a lot by limiting the amount of people that can purchase firearms. “In the fall of 2000, for example, HCI sent a letter to its membership contending that the 1993 Brady Handgun violence prevention act resulted in a drop in gun deaths from 37,776
A jury found Humo guiltless but condemned Garcia. There was no through grounds of an understanding to perpetrate the criminal act which was the declared objective of the understanding, and because the conditions of the shootings did not reinforce the creation of an understanding, implied or expressed, the government relied to a great extent on the gang association of the people to show the beingness of much an agreement. We hold that gang relationship itself can't set up guilt of a crime, and a broad understanding, inexplicit or expressed, to help one some other in gang fights does not supply significant impervious of the specific understanding needed for a final judgment of secret plan to
