If the adults cannot buy a gun legally there is always the other option, to get them from selling them illegally When responsible adults buy a gun, they most likely will not use it to murder people. They would use it so they can help themselves. A lot of people are in danger every day and most of them don’t have any protection. Guns aren’t the best way to solve a problem but if you are in need for some help and protection, then a gun can help a lot. 67% of Americans own a gun for protection from crime.
If one was to choose to advocate for gun rights, they would not be advocating that everyone own a gun and run around shooting this very dangerous weapon, they would be advocating for safe gun use and possession. This definition is one that silences one of the few prominent arguments gun control advocates have left, this being that with more guns, comes many more accidental gun deaths and other non-attack related crimes such as suicide, the percentage of suicide with guns is very highly correlated with household gun ownership rates. These are issues that arise because of the lack of gun safety. If guns were to become more readily available, gun safety would obviously have to be very heavily enforced. Multiple courses would be required to be taken before one purchases a gun, safes or cases with heavy locks should also be required to be purchased with the gun, the list of options can continue on for a long time.
Given that the gun control laws will limit the number of people who have guns, but at the same time just like drugs the guns will still find its way into the hands of the criminals. This shows that the people championing for the establishment of a tougher law to control the flow of guns are protecting the criminals while exposing the citizens who law are abiding to danger. . (William eta’l’ 1990 Page 221- 297) The perception that the many people have about violence and guns is not the correct perception. Firearms do not contribute to the increased rates of violence and crime.
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.
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
The Second Amendment was designed to guarantee the ability of law-abiding citizens to own and use firearms for legal purposes (The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, 2010). Even with the current gun control laws and their supporters, there are associations opposing against any and all types of gun control. The opponents of gun control, such as the National Rifle Association, argue that the “right to bear arms” is their guarantee under the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. This association also argues the licensing restrictions
In conclusion, I am currently against gun control because I want to make sure that innocent citizens can have access to guns and be able to protect themselves against criminals when they need to. Until the government can find more effective ways to control criminals’ access to guns, I will be against gun
Fact: Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Granted guns make it easier but no different than a car, a knife, or some other means that is the conscious choice by the decision maker. The key issues for consideration are the legal precedence, the evolution of firearms, society’s perspective and their application in today’s modern American culture. The United States of America was founded on the principal of being a sovereign nation with the ability to protect itself from others and also from within. In order to understand the implications of instituting a nationwide ban on firearms, one must understand the past, consider the actions of the present and predict the outcomes of the future.
However this right has been abused when guns fall in the hands of senseless murders, robbers, mentally unstable individuals, etc. which generates issues of the debate about gun control in recent years. Republicans and Democrats both stand behind our right protected by the Second Amendment nevertheless we need control over the gun laws. Republicans fully stands behind citizens right to guns, just the same as democrats they believe in regulation to keep down violence levels but philosophy they go against anything that inconveniences constitutional right of gun owners. Democrats in no way wish to undermine the right to the second amendment but do wish to establish strong laws to who can and cannot bear a gun for example restricting guns to be issued in the hands of previous criminals, stalkers, person going under mental services, background checks for gun sales, etc.
