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.
Not, only is it an infringement on peoples Second Amendment rights, it will also punish hunters and sportsman whom us firearms to hunt for enjoyment. It would also limit the ways individuals protect themselves and their families. Gun control is not the answer. Guns to some people are evil, because of the violence and death the can create. However, other people see them in a completely different light.
Gun control laws do help prevent this from happening as often. Not every individual should be allowed to own a gun, especially people who want to cause harm to others. Plenty of people who are law abiding citizens, and follow gun law regulations, feel as though they are punished for people’s violent actions. An example of a group of people who are against gun control laws are the members of the National Rifle Association. (Scalia, 2011) In states like California, the gun violence is one of the biggest problems the citizens and government officials face on a daily basis.
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
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.
The word infringed means to inflict upon a right or privilege. I see it clear that to control what guns we can own and the features they posses is clearly an infringement of our right to own a firearm. Gun control laws in the United States vary from state to state; places like New York and California are notorious for having the tightest grip on gun owners and what they are allowed to do with their guns. These laws have hurt the areas by taking away guns for
Some people think that if we just get rid of guns, violence will lower dramatically. IV. But, criminals would continue finding ways to illegally acquire guns while robbing and attacking law-abiding
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 new laws have provided an avenue to get back to our roots and protect our rights. Gun laws only limit the good guys and the bad guys don’t get their guns from a store, they come from the street and many people will die in the street if they can’t defend themselves.
