Can we allow ourselves to become completely defenseless against someone trying to hurt or kill us? Should we allow everyone to have a gun and know how to use it? Some people believe that we should have more gun control, making it so that only the police and other people of authority carried guns then the world would be a safer place. They believe that making it harder or impossible to purchase guns will result in less crime and less people getting killed. Under this train of thought people would feel safer.
Regulations to help keep this rule organized is fine, but the problem with these bills are that none of them do anything to reduce the crime rate and svae lives. Criminals will not registar their guns because most likely they are stolen and they have no license do to the fact that they are criminals. Ultimately, the only thing that these bill do is keep the honest people honest. John R. Lott did a short survey of 847 criminals that said that they are more concerned robbing a citizen with who is armed with a gun than running into the police. One felon quoted “ If you scare some innocent body with a gun you might not survive, if you get caught and arrested by a cop in America you are sure to survive”.
(Goldberg, 2012) But will that ensure that crime rates really would go down? It is pretty hard to believe that the criminals would just suddenly stop using guns just because the government would not allow them to. The truth is most of these criminals are smart, smart enough to not get caught, and with the gun control law the criminals would know that we civilians are less
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
Instead, it will only take a toll on the innocent Americans who will not be able to protect themselves in case of an attack. It will also be a violation of people’s right and in addition, the citizens will lose their trust towards their elected leaders. The law enforcers should treat people with respect and fulfil their duty to protect and serve instead of using their power to terrorise them because without these people, they would not be enjoying those privileges. Liberalism is slowly going to change the country, and soon people will be under the rule of a few privileged individuals. Taking away people’s right to own firearms, as Dwyer notes, is a calculated move aimed at leaving the people with no free will.
This course would give a regular person who wants to carry a concealed weapon the chance to learn about gun safety and how to properly use his gun. This course would be the last step before someone can get their gun, and failure to pass the course would result in not getting the permit or receiving of the person’s gun. Out of all the gun policies there has only been one that has shown to reduce deaths and injuries from public shootings which is to allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns. The opposition believes that this statistics is wrong that there are many other reasons that contribute to the fewer deaths and injuries from public shootings. One reason that might have to do with it is the thought that someone is carrying a gun
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?
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
He mention what is the president and public want from gun control laws even the public think all new government laws will not work to reduce the illegal used of gun. I agree with Wilson criticism of gun control legislation in same time I agree with the public of the effective of the new laws. Wilson tries to propose some solutions of illegal gun and should control and ban the use of these guns. Wilson has some ideas and major actions to solve gun control debate. He mentions the relating between shrinking the stock of legally purchased guns and people self defend.
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
