What if that was one of your family member, wouldn’t you want them to be able to protect themselves? I would think so. Many people don’t think of gun violence this way but, it is very true. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” It’s the person behind the gun that causes the death and deviation known with gun violence. So gun control is not the answer to the problem.
Gun control laws are put into place to protect the American people. Everyday crimes are committed with guns, but everyday guns are also used for protection against crimes, such as home invasions. The NRA is against gun control laws, because it violates some second amendment rights. (Reassessing, 1991.) Then are those who hate guns, are terrified of guns, and think guns should all be illegal.
The Founding Fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the Bill Of Rights for a reason, although some will say that it has no bearing today. Second, allowing teachers to carry handguns would provide better protection for the kids. In the event of an unpredictable school shooting, nobody is prepared to estimate the number of lives that
She also uses the logos when she describes that the statistics has shown that the gun keeping do not guarantee your normal death rather it contributes to the more risk of death by shooting. She says, “Rigorous, peer-reviewed studies have shown that keeping a gun in your home increases the likelihood that you will die there from gun violence. Nancy Lanza’s guns didn’t protect her” (MOSLE). This means that keeping the guns do not give the protections rather it is riskier to keep them. As a teacher she should not have given a baised analyses rather she should have given some positive examples of keeping the
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.
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
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.
Today there is not a more hotly debated issue than gun control. The most recent school shooting event has prompted an “I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it any more” moment just like it did in Sydney Lumet’s 1976 movie, Network. How many more school shootings do there need to be before the government stops talking about it and steps up and does something about it? It all seems to have started on April 20, 1999, when two high school students who were armed with weapons and bombs entered Columbine High School and killed twelve of their fellow classmates, one teacher and injured many more. On December 14, 2012, a lone gunman killed twenty first graders and six school teachers and administrators with an assault style rifle at the Sandy Hook Elementary School just outside of Newtown, Connecticut (Jonson).
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 Control On December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, twenty year old Adam Lanza walked into the elementary school with a gun. He shot and killed 26 people, 20 of which were children, using a semi-automatic fire arm. In 2007 at Virginia Tech, a senior at the school, walked into the school and killed 32 people with a semi-automatic weapon. Both of these tragic events were caused by a single gunman with a gun in an educational facility. Both of these events sparked many debates on the topic of guns and how to stop these events from happening.
