Should the United States abolish gun ownership? Introduction: The gun control debate poses the basic question: Who is more trustworthy, the government or the people? Argument A: Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional. Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional because the Second Amendment states that we have right to bear arms, citizens have the democratic ideal of life or justice, and statistics show that states with more gun rights have a lower crime rate.

Running head: Week 8 A Problem That Needs To Be Solved. An issue that seems to be on the rise more and more as time goes by is gun control. A lot of people believe that guns kill people. But I believe that careless people with guns kill people. No one ever said that guns killed Osama Bin Laden.
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.)
Fear drives opposition to gun control By David Frum (CNN) -- There will be no new gun laws after the Aurora shooting for the basic reason that the American people do not want them. Over the past 20 years, support for gun control has collapsed in the United States. Three-quarters of Americans want to keep the right to own handguns, weapons whose only function is to kill human beings at close range. In 1959, 60% of Americans wanted handguns banned outright for all but police officers. Little to gain, lots to lose for Obama and Romney on guns Responding to public opinion, states have loosened gun laws to allow citizens to carry weapons with them almost anywhere they go.
(Jost 907) However, in the recent years, the laws become loose because of too many ammunition smuggling. Such as Mexico, if the gun control is strict enough for it, it won’t available to spread out to others countries. Beside, according to Kenneth Jost, there are many different sounds from the society that talks about this issue for thirty years after the firearms law have set up. (1107) The upholders of gun controls denounce gun abuse and too many gun accidents and self-killed. They think the laws and licensing are loose.
To quote the star of stage and screen Odysseus T. Time 'Man's greatest enemy is complacency with regards to personal and political hygiene.'  This clearly illustrates the primary concern of those involved with guns. Perhaps the word which sums up the importance of guns to politics is 'participation'.

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.
He makes a point to inform viewers that the U.N. nation’s gun-grab agreement is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right-idiotic (2012). He really does have a variety of personal clips of political representatives using them as media propaganda to inform the viewers the pros and cons on gun control.

This shows that even teenagers understand that there is a balance that needs to be achieved in gun control. Many people in our government have tried to make laws to create that balance. For example, a United States senator by the name of Dianne Feinstein is proposing new laws on gun control. Dianna is a proud gun control supporter that is proposing many new laws to restrict on guns even more. Just a few of the laws that Dianne is proposing is: Ban on certain more dangerous firearms, ban on importation of assault weapons and large capacity magazines, and no magazines more than ten rounds.
Gun laws Laws over guns in America have been a well-debated topic over for many years. Should we put complete bans on them, and have a government buy back like many other countries, or do we stay true to the second amendment the “Right to bear arms.” The problem is that congress is too scared to do anything about the gun laws for fear of an outburst by the nation, so the issue sits idle until, one day something will have to change. My belief is that there has been too many crimes, too many tragedies involving guns. Too often do we hear that a man, woman, or child have been shot and killed, sometimes by accident too. On the contrary, I am a firm believer in our bill of rights; I believe that they are a good foundation of our government.
