Caleb Robbs Mrs. Hodgdon English III 2 May 2013 Gun control What do people think about when they hear gun control? Do thing about overruling or safety? The second amendment allows people the right to bear arms, it also allows people to own guns for self-defense and hunting. The government should not try and change the 2nd Amendment. They should not be able to take away our rights that were given to us long ago.
Those who support the bill to expand background checks and ban assault weapons in congress are worried about the amendment process of getting through to some states. Due to the Newton school shootings Obama and his administration has picked up momentum of gun
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,
I am not saying they would not get them, but it would be more difficult to find them. Cons for gun control are that if they ban some clips for a .22 rifle, I would not be able to keep my magazine unless they rule that a big clip is smaller than a certain number. Some people would disagree that having any kind of gun control is bad. The big gun enthusiasts think that nothing is going to change except for the temper of the
The second amendment states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” (U.S. Const., amend. II.). Opponents of gun laws say that any laws that are used by the government to control or regulate gun control is infringing on their second amendment right (Issues & Controversies, Online). A gun control initiative to be focused on would be stricter gun control laws and measures which would help crack down on gun crimes while encouraging responsible gun ownership and the use among civilians.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution gives the impression that gun control issues should be very black and white. Unfortunately this is not the case. There are too many standpoints to put a number on it. Ranging from absolutely no one should own a firearm, to citizens should be able to roam the streets with bazookas, and everything in between. There are many viewpoints for those who are in favor of gun control.
The Bill Of Rights was ratified on December 15, 1791. Many wish that that law had been left out, but the Second Amendment was added specifically for protection. If citizens decide to buy and have firearms in there house hold, only if they are willing to us it when necessary, the Constitution has a law to protect then. Otherwise there will be consequences. I believe that not just anyone can buy guns.
Placing a ban on many of the weapons that private citizens own today has stirred an uproar as to what this new ban will do to a nation who takes pride in its amendments. Many people believe that there is no way possible to effectively enforce this new weapons ban and that it does take some of the rights away previously given to American citizens through the Bill of Rights. Determining the effectiveness of the weapons ban of 2013, and exploring the differences between the proposed ban, and the weapons ban of 1994 will prove to be
Provide a story where you can. My topic is on the very sentisitive subject of gun control in America. Ever since the colonial days guns in America have been a subject of debate. With many controversial events involving the use of a firearm it is
They should categorize each crime and let a jury decide if this should be added to the punishment. For example, I do not believe that just any criminal act should revoke this license. The crime would have to pertain to any form of illegal harm to animals or humans such as murder, abuse, armed robbery, and poaching. The NRA, National Rifle Association, has the power to bring such laws to the surface. In my opinion, a certain license should have to be carried at all times to show that the offender has the right to be in possession of a firearm whether it is in their vehicle or home.
