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.
The statistics show that the fear of the public having guns makes it hard for criminals to know when to commit their crime. The fact of the matter is, you cannot stop all crime whether you'll low guns or not, but the goal is to lessen the crime rates and keep the public safe. When a citizen knows that a gun is by their side bin case they need to use it for protection it puts their mind at ease. Crime has dropped as the law has raised and there is a definite reason to that, and that is the criminals are just as scared of guns as we are. A crime prevention officer said “When you allow people to carry concealed handguns, you see changes in the behavior of criminals.
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.
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?
Even though the U.S constitution in the second amendment has given the right to citizens to possess weapons, gun control laws should be strengthened to stop the supply of weapons to the wrong hands such as feral criminals, mentally ill people or children to avoid violent incidents, bloodshed and loss of several precious lives. If the state law regulates a background check before handing guns to civilians, it will be easier to stop the
I understand why he feels the need to take away the guns but it may not be the best option. There should be restrictions about who is able to own, buy, or operate a gun, but we also need guns to protect ourselves. Not everyone is trained how to safely use a gun. I do not believe having weapons is the real cause of what has been happening. So I think we need to address the real cause of why people act the way they do because it is people that kill people not the gun that kills
Therefore, gun control should not be enforced, because this country has a constitutional right to bear arms and gun control will not stop the violence in this great nation. This great country was born on trust and certain rights that have been given to the citizens. When the fore fathers wrote the Constitution and then the Bill of Rights, they thought that citizens should be able to protect themselves from criminals and other attacks. The men who founded this nation knew that guns would be important “to preserve liberty; it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms…” (Preface 1). He knew that the right to bear
Some people believe that if no one had guns there would be no crime however, criminals will still find ways to get guns and this will leave everyone else unarmed and vulnerable. The complete banning of guns would not solve the issue of violent crimes it would only remove guns from the hands of individuals who need them for protection. I believe we do need gun control laws in America but not to the extent of banning guns altogether. America needs to concentrate more on ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals instead of taking them away from the ones that need
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
The facts against adapting stronger gun control laws are compelling. Disarming and adding further limitations to the law abiding citizens of America will only give the criminals the upper hand when they take advantage of us as opposed to allowing us to protect ourselves. What is the natural response to prohibitions and restrictions? The answer…CREATIVITY. Criminals will not stop illegally obtaining guns, they will not stop stealing them from people’s homes, robbing gun shops, or simply buying them on the black market.
