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 responded to one another’s post complaining about their biased decision. Do you parents take gun control and gun violence seriously? The video I selected that best relates to my research topic I found on you tube. It’s called Gun Control: Leads to More Violence. So in this particular video, Judge Andrew Napolitano is giving a speech about as American citizens we have the right to protect ourselves under the Second Amendment.
Gun control laws have become such a huge controversy in the United States due to the fact that citizens believe their Second Amendment right is being taken away from them. In my eyes, I believe that extended gun control measures should be taken to ensure that access to assault weapons should be limited to certain people. I believe one deserve a well rounded background check to see if any mental health issues are visible. I also believe you have the right to own a weapon and the government is not trying to take away your hunting rifles, personal permitted handguns, etc. They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to.
Gun casualties and incidents throughout the country have woken the public up from its ignorance and shown them the danger guns can pose to society (Martinez, 2013). While some people want a complete blanket ban on the ownership of guns, others wants an easier access to guns so that every person may look after their own security. Part of what makes the term gun control a very controversial topic is that it’s used in a ambiguous way that does not explain the details of the issue and the demands, apart from literally controlling guns. The two prominent sides of the debate are the groups who ask for liberal gun laws that make it easier for a person to procure guns and conversely, there are groups who want to repeal the second amendment. I personally am a strong believer that an “ideal society” should have no guns; nevertheless crime is a big problem to the citizens of our society and guns are necessary.
Gun Control Laws in America Firearms should not be restricted, nor should their accessories or capabilities. Placing laws that take away from our right to bear arms would only give negative effect on the safety of the general public and the amount of crimes committed. People need guns to protect themselves from the people who want to corrupt their lives by using guns, regardless of the law. Gun control laws vary from state to state. In the republic of California, some would say we have some of the worst laws and restrictions in the country.
US citizens do not support bans imposed on the ownership of gun, but at the same time control of gun ownership. US citizens are further divided one group supports gun control while another group support the right to gun. Politically democrats and republican do not hold the same view on gun control. Most democrats prefers stricter regulations on gun control but the republicans are usually further divided into two groups some are for softer regulation while
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.
The opponents of these laws say that Americans have the right to bear arms. They believe that the laws would stop individuals from defending their property of themselves. The significant disagreement that opponents argue is that the right to use and own weapons is a personal freedom promised by the Constitution. Individuals against gun control also think that certain people should not be allowed to own guns but also think that stricter laws can stop the needless loss of life. The debate over gun control has been one a main topic since the 20th century.
Opposition to Gun Control The topic I am going to speak on today is a very controversial topic, especially as of late. It is not about abortion, gay marriage or immigration but of gun control. It’s no doubt in my mind that the terrible tragedies that have taken place are nothing less than horrific. So of course it is natural to point the finger at someone at fault, but one must be sure that they are pointing it at the right person. A lot of people state that gun control would be the obvious solution and many would agree with this.
While these issues become more and more a problem, people are beginning to speak up on each sides. From ordinary people, all the way to US senators, people are proposing new ideas that can impact the laws of gun control. Finding this perfect balance of gun control can be rather difficult, even though many people become outraged when laws are put against their side. Gun control is like many other controversial topics, exploring both sides and taking feedback as well as inputting that feedback to making new laws may be the only way a happy medium can be
