Government officials keep creating laws that tend to slow down the process of owning a handgun, but it doesn’t solve the issue that crime still exists in this country. In order to commit a crime, owning a handgun isn’t truly necessary; anyone can commit it with any blunt object. The issue regarding crime will never be resolved no matter how many laws the government throws at it. Banning handguns will be almost like banning
In conclusion, I am currently against gun control because I want to make sure that innocent citizens can have access to guns and be able to protect themselves against criminals when they need to. Until the government can find more effective ways to control criminals’ access to guns, I will be against gun
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.
Democrats in no way wish to undermine the right to the second amendment but do wish to establish strong laws to who can and cannot bear a gun for example restricting guns to be issued in the hands of previous criminals, stalkers, person going under mental services, background checks for gun sales, etc. not that someone doing right in society isn’t capable of doing such harm but that crime may be lessen in society this way the right is not taken away but
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 Violence is a problem in the United States as well as in our community. So now we need to find a way to control gun violence. Guns themselves, however, are not the case of the violence, and gun control will do nothing to decrease violent crimes. People who decide to kill will find a way to kill even if they do not have access to guns. Therefore, guns cannot be singled out and blamed for all of gun control.
In the first article by Paul Waldman about the case for banning guns the author tries to connect with some gun owners by saying that he understands how they feel about one of their most prized possessions being taken from them because he too has a hobby that he enjoys just as they enjoy hunting. In the second article by Shiha Dalmia the author states that banning guns won’t stop people from getting them illegally and continuing to harm people. The real question here is who is wrong and who is right? The answer is no one. Everyone has their own opinion and way of seeing a situation.
Would Gun Prohibition Really Work In America? How do we answer the never ending question of whether firearms should be banned in the United States? Whether we should be allowed to own guns and how much power the government has to give us the right or not, is a core and extremely diverse topic in American Politics today. I feel that stricter laws should be made to control gun related crimes instead of banning the right to own a gun altogether. One side to this ongoing argument is that all guns in the United States need to be banned.
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
“Assault Weapons” are a key focus for gun control. Advocates for gun control state that these types of weapons should not be attainable by civilians. They feel those types of firearms are too dangerous for the common people. No facts are provided as to why these rifles like the AR-15, which has become a hot topic in the gun control community, are more dangerous than any other firearm. Bump stocks are another point of interest for gun control supporters.
