Critical Exchange Argument Outline Is it time for the nation to take steps to have stronger gun control? Stricter gun controls laws are ineffective and offer only false security to the misinformed. The theory that stricter gun control could have prevented tragedy can be refuted on the basis that the two students who went on a rampage in Columbine violated at least 20 gun control laws thus finding loopholes in the regulations. Increasing gun controls laws also infringes on our constitutional rights. The Supreme Court ruled on June 28th 2013, that individual Americans have a constitutional right to own guns- to all cities and states for the first time.
The Second Amendment is a law that was formulated to give the citizens of The United States of America the right to own and bear firearms. More gun control laws have been set in place as a deterrent for criminals to purchase firearms. Gun control laws are not the only way to avoid and protect criminals from purchasing firearms. Even with the gun control laws, debates, the Second Amendment and the Tiahrt Amendment, there is a lack of enforcement of these laws which has caused more violence. There also has not been a reduction in the number of criminals with guns.
Some people feel that the issue of gun control will limit crime and the fact that guns are necessary for self-defense against crime, and that enforcing gun control is a violation against a citizen’s second amendment right to bear arms. Possession of a handgun should be strictly regulated, because they are made solely to kill, and they have even allowed children to easily kill themselves and others, and they have increased the murder rate in the U.S. The reason handguns should be outlawed from citizens is that their main purpose is to kill other human beings. Why would our country allow us to have a right of possessing a deadly weapon? For the most part, our government seems to want to
Recent polls taken by the Pew Research Center and General Social Surveys show that the main reason for support of marijuana is that the American public fails to see marijuana has a major moral issue (Galston, Dionne 1). Compared to gay marriage or abortion, many more Americans are indifferent when it comes to others using marijuana. Those against legalization who consider marijuana to be a gateway drug and a vice argue that legalization will lead an overall increase in consumption of the drug. They argue that legalization will decrease productivity in the workplace, influence children negatively, and increase drug induced automobile crashes. However, the pro-legalization Americans respond in saying increased marijuana use has no lasting health effects, legalization will allow for better regulation of distribution, and marijuana legalization will reduce alcohol consumption in America.
Gun control is a controversial issue in United States. Gun control concerns with the government regulation of the use of guns and ownership by private citizens (Aitkens, 1992). People who think the United States needs gun control are mainly democrats; they believe that gun control would reduce the number of accidents related to the guns as well as the violences. However, some people oppose to gun control, and these people are mainly republicans, believe that gun control will not take guns away from the criminals or gangsters and in addition, it is against the law which gives the right of residents to bear arms. Gun is a very controversial issue in United States, because there are numerous reasons to support both sides on the issue.
Amongst all the stories swirling around in the media following the Sandy Hook tragedy it may surprise one to discover that handguns, not assault weapons, are used in most of the gun murders in the United States. Despite this many in Congress are pushing to bring back the Clinton-era ban with some extra restrictions and requirements. Although I can understand how frustration and grief following such horrific events can push people to call for action, I do not think that banning certain types of semi-automatic rifles or limiting their magazine capacity will do anything to stem the tide of death. The first hurdle that politicians seeking a new assault weapon ban will have to face is defining what exactly an assault weapon is. Most of the time
These to men have similar views on the issue such as a law prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers if someone using their produst comittes a crime. Also they both supports instant criminal background checks on people purchasing guns and believes law should apply to gun sales at gun shows. They both also voted for the child safty laws and such. But this is where they part. Obama voted for the AR band and McCain voted against it.
Gun Control With the number of recent school shootings across the United States, gun control has been a provocative issue for many years. A large majority of American citizens believe that if gun control is strictly enforced it would rapidly reduce the jeopardy of lives. Many citizens believe they should have the right to carry a gun if not for protection of themself, but for their family as well, not to mention for the great American pastime of hunting. As long as the law is followed, Americans have a constitutional right to own hand guns; stricter laws and licensing requirements will not successfully save lives. The second amendment gives the right to American’s to bear arms; it basically states that with a well regulated military
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. this laws are intended to stop unnecessary use of firearms. although these laws may be able to stop the majority of criminals from getting weapons, its impossible to rid all weapons from the hands of criminals. These laws may represent the wrong balance, and could hurt America rather than helping it. Other
Most gun activists stand by the 2nd amendment but does it really make sense to do that lets just think for a second why was the 2nd amendment made? It was made so Americans can protect themselves from danger but do guns really protect us when we are using them to kill other each other and using them to commit acts of terror? The obvious answer is no but lets pause for a moment and just say that people need guns such as hunting rifles to hunt and handguns to protect themselves given certain situations, even with these exceptions there is no need for assault weaponry
