Taking Stand for Gun Control The issue of guns and gun control is largely debated topic. Gun crimes are a major issue, yet no one has a solution to the problem. As for me taking stand for gun control is something I believe in. Guns can fall in the wrong hand if the government is not enforcing stricter laws. What I believe is who can have guns which should only be for military and law enforcement.
The say that what is a good idea is not the blanket ban of guns, which is unconstitutional because of new meaning of the second amendment, but rather a continuation of the current limits of guns and gun owners. It may not be “constitutional” for the government to put a complete ban on weapons, but it is proper for it to enact stronger restrictions to keep the rather terrifying weapons away from the people who cannot be trusted with a knife, much less than that of a
Now if we create more gun control laws which make it harder for civilians to get home defense guns then its just putting more people lives in danger. Essentially, making it easy for bad people to do things like that. Not only will gun laws make it less affordable to obtain guns but it will also make the whole process of get them a lot harder. See as of right now guns don't need to be registered you could simply go to a gun show or just over to your neighbor's house and buy a gun! Which is one thing this whole gun control thing might be helpful for, but at the same time it will make it a huge hassle to buy self defense or home defense buyers to get
He mention what is the president and public want from gun control laws even the public think all new government laws will not work to reduce the illegal used of gun. I agree with Wilson criticism of gun control legislation in same time I agree with the public of the effective of the new laws. Wilson tries to propose some solutions of illegal gun and should control and ban the use of these guns. Wilson has some ideas and major actions to solve gun control debate. He mentions the relating between shrinking the stock of legally purchased guns and people self defend.
Having a gun will not help all the time but being defenseless will never help. I do think their should be restrictions but its better to have a weapon for protection and not need it than to need it and not have one. WASHINGTON — Another mass shooting, another drive for gun control. But will the latest shooting -- this time at an elementary school -- change the political calculus in Washington and generate more support for tougher gun laws? "I think the impact of this is going to be inescapable," said Kristen Rand, legislative director of the Violence Policy Center.
This course would give a regular person who wants to carry a concealed weapon the chance to learn about gun safety and how to properly use his gun. This course would be the last step before someone can get their gun, and failure to pass the course would result in not getting the permit or receiving of the person’s gun. Out of all the gun policies there has only been one that has shown to reduce deaths and injuries from public shootings which is to allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns. The opposition believes that this statistics is wrong that there are many other reasons that contribute to the fewer deaths and injuries from public shootings. One reason that might have to do with it is the thought that someone is carrying a gun
(Goldberg, 2012) But will that ensure that crime rates really would go down? It is pretty hard to believe that the criminals would just suddenly stop using guns just because the government would not allow them to. The truth is most of these criminals are smart, smart enough to not get caught, and with the gun control law the criminals would know that we civilians are less
No, there are laws and restrictions such as background checks, not letting a convicted felon purchase a firearm, making it so that if someone want to care their gun they have to go through the proper training, these are all good laws and restrictions regarding the ownership of a firearm. Banning high powered rifles, making it illegal to purchase magazines with more than ten rounds, restricting the places a trained gun owner can carry, are all infringements on the constitutional right to bear arms. There are over two-hundred gun laws in the United States, some of them are justified, but a majority of them should have never been passed because they are unconstitutional. It all comes down to two facts; gun control is not constitutional, the second amendment was put in place to protect the citizens against the government. In history the first thing a tyrannical government will do is disarm its
This seems like a logical assumption; fewer guns equal fewer crimes involving guns. However with a lucrative black market for illegal guns, in place all across America, criminals don’t buy guns from licensed dealers. Admittedly, greater restrictions on legally purchasing guns are just one of many proposed gun control regulations. The reason once again for the inability of these countless regulations to reduce crime is simply that people who intend to use guns for murder or other violent crimes don’t buy guns legally. With criminals buying guns nearly exclusively from the black market, stricter gun control policies might, in fact, encourage crime.
If there were stricter gun laws in place how are people suppose to feel safe in their homes. Criminals are called criminals for a reason they do not live their life with respect to laws, they always find a loop hole to get what they want. “Gun free zones do little to protect law-abiding citizens, law abiding citizens do not carry guns in these areas, but criminals do; this will only make soft targets for criminals and increase the chance of violent crimes” (2010). Everyone has a constitutional right to bear arms, and legislation will only be taking away the rights of people to protect themselves. Everything can be posed as a threat not just gun, “In 2013 there have been killing sprees with knives and bombs at the Boston Marathon; three people were killed and 264 were injured when the Tsarnaev brothers set two bombs and a student in Houston
