Many states have created have laws preventing any felons from using or owning guns of any type. On top of this there are locations where guns are not allowed. With this there is also a ban on the dangerous assault weapon. Many of the gun enthusiast provide a middle ground. 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.
He mentions the relating between shrinking the stock of legally purchased guns and people self defend. The public opinion in this point is dangerous to shrink that. They believe should not be to reduce the carry of firearms, but put an end to them being carried by criminals. The government and public goal
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
Banning Assault Rifles and High Capacity Magazines Would Be Pointless Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety,” (“Benjamin Franklin”) Today there are US politicians who are in support of gun control legislature in an endeavor to protect citizens from the injuries and death that could hypothetically come from so called assault rifles and high capacity magazines. However, gun control laws are ineffective in preventing from heinous and violent activity, and have never worked. In a negative affect can actually increase gun related crime. Criminals by nature do not respect laws, so it would
Taking Stand for Gun Control The issue of guns and gun control is largely debated topic. Gun crimes are a major issue, yet no one has a solution to the problem. As for me taking stand for gun control is something I believe in. Guns can fall in the wrong hand if the government is not enforcing stricter laws. What I believe is who can have guns which should only be for military and law enforcement.
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
Only the illegalisation of the guns will make people acknowledge that these objects are harmful. In America owning a gun is considered a human right but people without guns also have a right to feel safe. This right is taken away from them when they experience school shooting or other crimes involving arms. Tens of lives wasted, a striking experience for the children that witness the carnage. All this and yet there is no response to the illegalisation of guns.
However, thinking a gun in the hands of an “octogenarian” makes them safe is fooling themselves. The gun does not make them equal to the “gang banger,” it makes them more likely to get shot, because once again the “gang banger” has no qualms about using the gun. Consequently, the “octogenarian” is at a disadvantage as they try to become the police and prevent a
There is no other country that has laws that protect an individual's right to bear arms. Everyone wants a simple answer to the controversy over gun control, but the truth is there is no simple answer. Gun control laws are ineffective at controlling crime because they only control the law abiding citizens, criminals are not concerned with gun laws. so you may ask, what do we do? Everyone thinks that the constitution has our rights protected, but what many people do not realize is that the constitution is constantly being challenged by law makers, states and individuals alike.
No, there are laws and restrictions such as background checks, not letting a convicted felon purchase a firearm, making it so that if someone want to care their gun they have to go through the proper training, these are all good laws and restrictions regarding the ownership of a firearm. Banning high powered rifles, making it illegal to purchase magazines with more than ten rounds, restricting the places a trained gun owner can carry, are all infringements on the constitutional right to bear arms. There are over two-hundred gun laws in the United States, some of them are justified, but a majority of them should have never been passed because they are unconstitutional. It all comes down to two facts; gun control is not constitutional, the second amendment was put in place to protect the citizens against the government. In history the first thing a tyrannical government will do is disarm its
