The reason is the perceived view that it is the lack of gun control that has resulted in the number of firearms-related deaths in the country. In fact, this is one of the most stated, but wrong, arguments for gun control. The fact of the matter is that if gun control is put into place there are more chances that law-abiding citizens will be victims. Gun control laws to a large extent can have no effect on criminals, as there will always be a thriving black market for trade of guns and firearms. (Nair,
Do Stricter Gun-Control Laws Help Prevent Gun-Related Injuries/Deaths? Gun control arguments are a hot topic in America and around the world; it is a topic not likely to go away anytime soon. Arguments for and against carry their own merit and can be lengthy and broad by nature, but our intent is to debate the effect of gun-control laws and the effect they have on gun-related injuries/deaths. The argument presented here will get to the crux of why laws should or should not be enacted to prevent social ills. Most agree that gun-related injury or death of innocent citizens should never be tolerated, but there are opinions on the course to take in an effort to discover a solution.
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.
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.
The reduction of the crime rates following the reduction of gun-related violence can be used to justify gun control. However, the official statistics does not support this assumption. The reasoning that guns cause crimes arises numerous disputations, as it does not consider that guns are just another mean of committing a crime. Pro-gun advocates usually assert, “Guns do not kill people; people kill people.” The Vice President, Wayne Lapierre argued that the best solution to the Newton Massacre was to allow citizens to own guns. He stated”The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” (Spitzer,
Gun control reform will ensure that there will be further stringent checks to decrease further incidents of violence. Reform may not be the total answer to the problem of mass shootings, but it should be part of any meaningful response to so many tragedies. The bottom line is current gun control laws are inadequate. People have been taken from this earth in the shooting massacres all over the United States. No amount of debating will bring back those
We also need to broaden background checks and analyze more than just criminal history. After Newtown, government must enact legislation to strengthen public safety rather than jeopardize it by violating the Second Amendment. It worries me that people believe in banning assault weapons to solve gun violence, especially when history has told us otherwise. Public security measures and proficient background checks are necessary to ensure the safety of citizens. Merely banning certain firearms will not stop mass
The Gun Debate in America Today The gun control policies in the US need to be stronger. There are more than a few actions that can be taken instead of simply just confiscating all the guns. With politicians trying to take guns out of our hands they are mistakingly disarming plenty of well behaved citizens. There should be heavier efforts on the front line of enforcing the laws already put into place or perhaps putting more laws into place that would protect the general public. Law abiding citizens who are properly armed are a natural crime deterrent by themselves.
Gun control has become a large topic of argument in recent years as politicians have begun using it as a tool to win votes. To me there is no reason why a person should not be allowed to own a gun and have it with them. Especially if they have gone through classes or have gotten a permit for the weapon, but many people see the idea of all people being able to own a gun as a harm to society. Guns have various usages besides the downsides that many gun control supporters capitalize. Many people have guns for the sole purposes of self-defense or hunting.
Banning guns will take away yet another piece of people’s liberty, which is another step to socialism and totalitarians (Messerli). Some individuals say that just because there is a gun control does not mean that criminals will actually not use guns. Carrying a concealed weapon increases the chance of a confrontation escalating and becoming lethal. When afraid, intoxicated, or untrained in conflict resolution is when most firearms are being used
