They should not be able to take away our rights that were given to us long ago. The people of the United States of America do not like the government trying to pass this law. People use guns for self-defense and hunting. People are standing up for their rights and showing the government that they can’t walk on us. This gun control is making ammunition prices raise.
The reason that they put this in the constitution was that they weren’t sure if the government would be correct so they put that in if the people we ever being oppressed then they had the right and the duty to overthrow said oppression and put in place the form of government that they saw fit. This is yet another reason why guns are not the problem they are simply a tool. All you here in the news is the negatives about guns, for example how many times have you woken up turned on the news and saw that there was a shooting last night. They don’t tell you that there a millions of Americans that didn’t shoot anybody last night. This is just another example of people putting the blame where it doesn’t belong.
Our current gun control laws are ineffectual with ambiguities that currently allow people to purchase guns with minimal restriction. Lobbyists also hide behind the second amendment saying it is the constitutional right to bear arms; however, the Second Amendment itself talks about “militia”, an army that will protect the “state” and has rights to bear arms for this specific purpose, not individuals claiming their own defense from imagined enemies. The country has progressed since the time when the Second Amendment was needed to consolidate U.S. boundaries and protect itself against foreign aggression. Ultimately, the reality is that a gun is a lethal weapon; its function and design is to kill. Gun control reform will ensure that there will be further stringent checks to decrease further incidents of violence.
Our country is rooted and continues to grow everyday by way of the US Constitution. Our justice system makes decisions on sending people to prison based on our constitution, so why do legislators think its okay to turn their back on it? That is the single most important document in our country and it is constantly belittled by trivial arguments about our right as citizens to own a firearm. The same firearms that were used to create and defend that document. Its importance it literally unparalleled in our governing system and it is just a shame that in the worst case they are not even looking to reform the second amendment, rather destroy it and take all the guns.
Most agree that gun-related injury or death of innocent citizens should never be tolerated, but there are opinions on the course to take in an effort to discover a solution. This paper will offer problems and solutions associated with past and present efforts to manage the issue of gun-related injuries/death. This paper will also render the discoveries and opinions of the above-mentioned group members as it relates to this controversial topic. Stricter gun-control laws do not help prevent gun-related injuries/deaths One method to prevent gun-related injuries/deaths is to make serious efforts to treat depression, mental health issues, and drug abuse in society. A large number of gun-related injuries/deaths are committed by members of society that have untreated disorders and others that simply neglect firearm safety rules and existing gun-control laws.
Throughout history, mankind has waged war against each other various reasons. These reasons are often times proven to be trivial and superfluous thus making wars preventable. The American civil war was a war that was inevitable because of key events leading up to the war divided the country to the point where it made war unpreventable. The first issue that made the civil war unavoidable was the Declaration of Independence (cite). The writer of the Declaration was Thomas Jefferson who wrote it based off the ideals of the enlightenment period.
In the gun control argument, I stand with the side that wants more gun control and less permission to carry a gun. There are many rules that I am against that are for guns, like to buy a gun you only get a background check and that’s it, I think you should get checked every year, and not only should they do a background check, they should also do a psychological test, and you should have to go to a course on guns and gun use every time you want to renew the license. There have been a lot of accidents around the country because of this issue of gun control, people are acquiring guns way too easily and are not using them properly, if you are buying a gun then like it should either be for hunting animals or for self-defense. They shouldn’t use them just because they don’t like the person or because of revenge or other stupid motives like those.
As you can see people have some crazy arguments as to why we need gun control like gun control will lower crime rates, less people will die when involved in criminal attacks, and who needs a gun for protection when we have law enforcement for protection. But, these are all clearly pathetic arguments when it comes to swaying the majority. No matter what way they want to look at it, gun control will not work in any
Gun Control “Opponents to gun control laws argue ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people”’(ProQuest Staff). Gun Violence is a major problem in the United States today considering the current gun control regulations are ineffective; however, laws can be made to accommodate for this and still allow the citizens to protect themselves from danger. “The role of guns in violence, and what should be done, are subjects of intense debate in the United States and elsewhere” (Webster). The people who have either seen, heard, or read news stories on gun policies might have come to the conclusion that mass shootings, the mentally ill, and assault weapons are the primary concerns in the debates; gun control laws disarm law-abiding citizens and fail
Guns have been around for a long time throughout history guns have played a major role. Our founding fathers used guns to defend and take over America. They have placed amendments in the constitution to ensure that we will always have guns. The liberals have been calling on taking away guns and making very strict gun control laws. Gun control doesn't work look at Chicago for instance they have some of the highest crime rates but yet they have some of the strictest gun laws.
