Yes, true but if we gun owners are responsible gun owner, and we do the right thing we can stop guns from reaching the streets. In the end, a sensible approach to gun violence would include prohibitions of all assault type weapons, more regulation of handguns, and working to make sure federal, state, and local have the tools to enforce the laws relating to firearms. I don’t know if gun control would have prevented the tragedies that took place in our nation, but I do believe that a fear of gun control will prevent us from understanding them. Gun ownership is a type of culture, and talking about whether gun control is right or wrong requires us to acknowledge this. We have to first admit that gun ownership changes a person.
This bill prohibited 19 different types of firearms from being sold or imported inside the U.S. It also limited certain types of ammunition that could be sold in America. John McCain believes that trying to outlaw certain kinds of ammunition undermines the Second Amendment. However, when McCain ran for president in 2000, he was featured in radio and television ads that supported regulation on gun shows and registered gun buyers. John McCain began pushing for all merchants at gun shows to have to run instant background checks for potential buyers.
I believe that gun control laws are unconstitutional. Gun Control laws are only taking away our rights given to us in the second Amendment of the Constitution which are protected by the fourteenth Amendment. Forcing people to have background checks before purchasing a gun or making assault weapons illegal will not lower the level of crime that is caused by guns. These laws will only affect law abiding citizens of the United States. Why would a criminal follow gun control laws if he or she is already going to break the law to commit a crime?
Do they think that the criminals are going to give up their firearms just because it’s “illegal” to possess them? If current gun control laws put forth by this administration were enacted, law abiding citizens would be the only unarmed population in this country. This would work out well for the criminals who want to take our wallet of rob your home. We as a people need to stand up and let our politicians know that we are more protected when we are allowed to protect ourselves. If the aim of our government is to protect our schools, then why not post an armed serviceman at ever school.
He mentions the relating between shrinking the stock of legally purchased guns and people self defend. The public opinion in this point is dangerous to shrink that. They believe should not be to reduce the carry of firearms, but put an end to them being carried by criminals. The government and public goal
America and the Right to Bear Arms COM323: Persuasion and Argumentation December 3, 2012 The issue of gun control and gun laws is one of great disagreement between political parties, state and federal government, and even between neighbors and family members. There are groups that believe violent crime will decrease with the passing of stricter gun laws, which would prohibit the ownership of dangerous weapons. However, the fact of the matter remains that guns do not kill people; other people are responsible for the guns they use to hurt or kill other people. Responsible gun ownership, just like responsible operation and use of any dangerous equipment, including cars, heavy machinery and even kitchen knives, is the only thing that will limit or contain the danger of using such a weapon. When the founding fathers of our young nation debated certain inalienable rights, one leading figure eloquently stated the following: “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself.
Efforts to fight crime are best served by focusing on the criminal element and not with gun control legislation. Criminals should know that when they break the law there will be swift apprehension, prosecution, and punishment. Research is beginning to prove laws do not reduce the amount of violent crime in our society. Gun laws have only succeeded in disarming the law-abiding and making the criminal's work environment safer (Unfocused 1). Executive Director of the National Rifle Association Neal Knox told the subcommittee on criminal law of the United States Senate, "Gun laws fail because they do not address the issue.
The criminals should be living in fear because they know that their victims have the ability to retaliate when attacked. The fact is that modern gun control laws only protect the criminal and the image of the government’s control over the people. The people of the USA should have the ability to defend themselves, to defend their own freedom, before the country ends up being run by criminals or by an all-powerful and corrupt government like the Hitler
Obama’s Administration and NRA on Gun Control Debate in America Guni K. Bal PR 336 by Jack Saunders Golden Gate University - Spring 2013 White House Chief of staff Denis McDonough said in an appearance on CNN that, “Obama is not giving up on assault weapons ban being added to an amendment. We are going to work on this. We are going to find the votes. It deserves a vote.”1 It’s easy to get a gun in this country. Hence America has the highest rate in gun violence in the world.2 One big enabler is the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Obama’s administration says that guns are weapons of crimes and the NRA says that guns are for safety and protection.
Gun Control Research Project Aarron Locklin Lonestar College System Some Americans are convinced that more federal regulation of firearms is needed to reduce the number of homicides that are committed with guns and to ensure a safer, more civilized society. Others who support ownership of firearms proclaim that the right to bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and that no increase in crime, no mass killing, nor any political murders should lead the nation to violate the Constitution and the individual rights it guarantees. They also say that knives and other instruments are used to kill people as well, and there is no talk of regulating or banning them. Both supporters and opponents of gun control
