Caleb Robbs Mrs. Hodgdon English III 2 May 2013 Gun control What do people think about when they hear gun control? Do thing about overruling or safety? The second amendment allows people the right to bear arms, it also allows people to own guns for self-defense and hunting. The government should not try and change the 2nd Amendment. They should not be able to take away our rights that were given to us long ago.
With the news is filled with murders, assaults, rapes, accidents, and many other crimes, I feel that we as a country have the right to ask for more protection. Thus, I think legalizing firearms would be a good idea in order to uphold, the Second Amendment, offer protection and criminals might feel intimidated.
On the one hand, you have those who believe gun control is an essential thing for security. Others believe it is unfair to abstract a person's liberty to have guns. Those people also believe that firearms control will not aid to prevent offenses either. In any case, firearms have become one of the major reasons of death in many countries. The best example I think is the USA where guns are initial among young Afro-Americans.
Gun Control This is an issue that I would like to address because majority of the people I know and whom I may consider friends and family have been affected by gun violence in one way or the other either directly or indirectly. I would like to propose tougher laws to be put in place for those who would like to get a gun, to those who have violated gun laws and those who are found guilty of using guns to partake in criminal activities. In deciding to deal with this law I understood that firearms cannot be out rightly be banned therefore to encourage fairness, justice and to protect the peoples right, the best option or way forward was to amend and make proposal to the current laws. It should be noted that my recommendations are for federal
Do they possess the appropriate training and education that comes with the responsibility of carrying a handgun as they pass me in the hall or sit in the same classroom? The American Journal of Public Health (AM J PUBLIC HEALTH), 2012 Dec; 102 (12): 2245-7 surveyed student’s attitudes towards concealed handguns on campus at two universities, which resulted in very low levels of comfort. Even though, the option of carrying handguns off and on campus had a different outcome when asked. I believe this suggest the 2nd Amendment of Right to Bear arms is held in high regards and those students believe in that to do so, just not where a school campus environment is concerned. Texas ratio was
Gun control has become a large topic of argument in recent years as politicians have begun using it as a tool to win votes. To me there is no reason why a person should not be allowed to own a gun and have it with them. Especially if they have gone through classes or have gotten a permit for the weapon, but many people see the idea of all people being able to own a gun as a harm to society. Guns have various usages besides the downsides that many gun control supporters capitalize. Many people have guns for the sole purposes of self-defense or hunting.
Those who do not believe in the legalization of concealed carry stand firm in their opposition. We must stand firm in our support of the legalization of concealed carry in all states. Concealed carry of firearms can save lives and give individuals the ability to protect what is rightfully theirs. We must write our legislators encouraging their support to allow the concealed carry of a firearm and give back our Second Amendment right, the Right to Bear
In my opinion, a certain license should have to be carried at all times to show that the offender has the right to be in possession of a firearm whether it is in their vehicle or home. This license should be shown to law officials when approached by one and if you are in possession of a firearm unlicensed you should be detained. If this law were to take place it would not prevent violence with weapons, but it would reduce the amount of criminals on the loose with firearms. The government, in alliance with the NRA, could start by weeding out all of the unregistered firearms. After a good percentage of the illegal firearms have been put into government hands, they could issue a country wide equivalency test to be able to own or use firearms.
The main issue at hand in the midst of all the statistics and arguments is within the people themselves. The saying “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” is a testament to the crimes and violence perpetrated today. Criminals do not commit crimes simply because they have access to firearms, but rather they already have a mindset to commit a certain crime with whatever weapon they find most effective. The two most powerful organizations involved in gun control and gun rights, The Brady Campaign and The National Rifle Association, have contributed heavily in gun politics and will further try to keep the country safe while allowing its citizens the right to bear
Some want it removed entirely, and others want the amendment to be expanded greatly. I am not arguing that the right to bear arms should be taken away. I do, however, strongly believe that the law needs to be restricted and should continuously change over time, the same way that society and technology change. When the right to bear arms was given to the people, it was given for hunting, sporting, and protection purposes. Many of the guns and ammunition of today are far more powerful than anything needed for those reasons.
