Gun control Gun restriction legislation is currently in progress to stop the sale of automatic rifles, and clip size. These new proposed legislations would not stop the mass killings that caused this new kind of fear. While nothing is going to happen like the gun laws in England, where private ownership of a assault rifle is non existent, the government is trying to stop these killings that have struck fear into the American public, alternatively no one is proposing the laws in Switzerland that state it is not right for guns laws to be restricted in any way. The current gun restrictions on a nation-wide basis differs from state to state, however, one law is clear throughout the whole nation “the right of the people to keep and
They should not be able to take away our rights that were given to us long ago. The people of the United States of America do not like the government trying to pass this law. People use guns for self-defense and hunting. People are standing up for their rights and showing the government that they can’t walk on us. This gun control is making ammunition prices raise.
and Robert Kennedy the 1960’s were two foundational instances when the government knew they had to act and strengthen gun control laws. Gun control laws have always been an issue for every state. One of the biggest issues is that we don’t have enough people that are willing to speak up for stricter gun control laws. According to an Associated Press poll in December, “only half of Americans thought that gun laws should be stricter and 15% actually said they should be less strict.” I think we can all agree that gun control laws should be stricter. There are people who are mentally ill that are able to purchase guns with the intent of killing people.
One thing thought to create this mess is the gun laws in the city and country itself. The Right to Bear Arms was not meant to be taken for granted. But this is not the case in Philadelphia. Who would’ve thought one of our constitutional rights would have an effect on the life of today. We should be able to have this right but use it for a purpose.
Haydn Collyer Topic: Gun Control Writing 122 9/25/12 The topic of gun control is a highly disputed one. I believe that America has more important matters to attend to rather than getting into a dispute over something that has been argued since its creation, firearms. To the average American a “gun” is something that is only made for killing and is only found in the hands of villains, criminals and law enforcement/military. I am here to tell you that that is not the case at all. Millions of honest Americans own guns.
Gun Control Does gun control decrease crime, or does it change anything at all. Criminals will have guns regardless of if they’re legal. If we make guns illegal, only the criminals will have guns. Law abiding citizens will have no way of defending themselves against said criminals. No matter what kind of gun control we have, criminals will always be able to obtain guns through the black market.
In a country full of violent crime, the United States continues to embody the gun as integral to it's protection and culture. While the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution grants the people the right to bear arms, the people must on the contrary protect themselves from those who bear them. In my view, guns give people a false sense of security and are more of a nuisance than a benefit. Guns are a threat to the peace and safety of society. Therefore, since it is unlikely that all guns will disappear in the United States, legislation must be enacted to ban and cease the further manufacture of the types of firearms involved in more violent crime than all others; handguns and assault-weapons.
It also doesn’t make sense to blame an inanimate object rather than the individual behind it and the reasons why gun violence occurs. A gun is a tool, not unlike a car or knife. When a law-abiding citizen makes the decision to purchase a gun, it is usually for the purpose of self-defense. It evens the playing field between a victim and a potentially dangerous criminal. In the story “They Each Had a Gun,” Hannah LaMarca was robbed and assaulted with no way to defend herself.
Gun Control There is a terrifying, indisputable lack of firearms control in America. This is one of the most debated issues today, however the way American people approaches this problem is as negligent as criminals. The aberration that surrounds this issue is misuse and misinterpretation of the Second Amendment. Often enough, the argument boils down to the Second Amendment which states citizens have the right to bear arms which has resulted in the crime rates and murders to skyrocketing because the people who commit these crimes have control of firearms. Could the Founding Fathers of this powerful country have remotely come close to envision our society in which teenagers could normally walk into a class room, pull out a loaded gun and murder
Evoking an individual’s right to own a gun(s) has not been proven to decrease acts of violence. In fact, the illegal distribution of firearms will only increase criminal profits and clog up court systems as a result. History only shows that taking away this right only leads to uprising of government and citizens. One of the most basic and sacred rights given to Americans by our ancestors is the right to bear arms. The founding fathers staged a revolt against the government in order to start a new land, with new laws and rights given to all.
