We should be able to have this right but use it for a purpose. Resorting to gun violence instead of the old fashioned fists match is the way of many young folk. Families and friends are left grieving but no lessons are learned it just continues. Below I will show you which area of the city have the most gun violence. If you analyze the photo you will notice that gun violence is not the subject of just one area in Philadelphia, it has taken over the whole city As you see below it is a recurring issue, one hand to the other.
Thus, the problem of criminal gun violence is concentrated within a very small subset of gun owners, indicating that gun control aimed at the general population faces a serious needle-in-the-haystack problem.” The vast majority of citizens buying firearms are only doing it merely for their own protection. Criminals are always going to have access to firearms may it be legally or illegally. So the worst thing we could possibly do is to outlaw guns for the whole population. That would leave crime victims utterly defenseless. Gun ownership plays a big role in personal safety.
16. Increasing gun control laws won’t work as proven here as Alexis was using a shotgun he assembled, and later, a pistol that he took from a downed security guard. His peers knew he had a very bad addiction for violent video games involving guns. The fact that he was an anti-social 35- year-old man increased theories that video games have an influence toward gun violence. Aggression is the reason behind gun-violence and video games bring that aggression out,”(Studies Suggest Complex Link Between Guns, Violent Video Games).
Using this logic, citizens would be denied the ability to drive cars because drunk drivers use them to kill people. Rand completely fails to mention that the right to carry concealed firearms is a fundamental attribute of decentralized US crime-fighting initiatives that have made an unambiguously positive impact on society—not only on gun violence—but also on broader crime categories that include murder, rape, and robbery. These benefits are mostly long-term, as any immediate increase in crime after the passage of concealed carry laws is “dwarfed over time by the decrease in crime associated with the post-law trend” (Moody & Marvell, 2008, p. 270). Furthermore, according to data collected by the Violence Policy Center over the last four years, murders committed by “permit-holders amount to fewer than one of every 200 murders. For every
Shaffer claims that not only will crime not decrease, but will grow resulting in more violence than ever. Publication of the poll, September, 4, showed that 59 percent of the individuals expressing an opinion favored restricting possession of hand guns, such as pistols and revolvers, to the police; only 35 percent of the respondents were opposed fifty-three percent favored making it unlawful to have a loaded gun in one’s home, and 85 percent approved rigid restraints on use of guns by teenagers. The author Shaffer then gets information from a recent Gallup poll found substantial majorities “definitely of a mind to place some kind of restriction on the use of guns” (13). As Shaffer claims, I as well agree on the statistics and her opinion that it would only make matters worst while others tend to think the opposite. In addition, Shaffer effectively defends her idea that banning handguns will have no effect on reduction of violent crime, but may actually increase instances of gun crimes.
Some public opinion on gun control stems from the idea that all guns are evil and serves no other purpose than violence, and the increased violence in the media causes the public to believe certain things (Volokh). In a news caption titled: "Handguns Are Used in Most U.S. Assaults and Robberies," the BBC news reported, "Handguns are used in two-thirds of robberies and assaults...according to statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigations." Yet, according to the Justice Department's National Crime Victimization Survey (2005 data), handguns are used in 5.4 percent of U.S. assaults and 26.3 percent of robberies (Volokh). This misinformation is seen again in the L.A. Times, which reported that "[D.C. Officials] argue handguns are involved in most violent crime."
About 772,500 people in the US alone are involved *in gang* related activity* every year*. * Out of this at least 48% of those involved are under the age of 18. And out of the 48% of teens 20% of them die each year. In 2007 a friend of mine decided to join a gang but he knew he had to have ownership of a gun before he could join. He then remembered his dad had one locked away in his room, he took it then join up with a gang.
If that is so, then why are there so many sensless murders happening every day in this wonderful country we so proudly defend called America. It seems to me that some of the people that have these permits for guns are not as responsible with them as they make it seem. Of course, most of the crimes that are occurring involving guns, the guns are not registered, they are stolen, or they belong to a friend of the person committing the crime. So why has there not been anything done about
As long as we know, most of people can use the gun when they get a license for using it in America. However, we can still see some people who still use it although they do not get a license because using gun is considered something is really popular others countries. Even an international student can use the gun to kill a lot of people as well when he or she gets too much stress. Especially, all of those accidents were done by the young men who were just under 25-years-old. For example, the trend of young gun violence in Boston seemed to be downward for a few years.
How do you feel if the society where people can buy weapons legally or the ones where you could not even own a weapon? That becomes a terrible world for everybody. Guns are not only to protect people but also can kill people. That is why we should have a law for gun control. I agree with gun control because it keeps the society safer, it is less violent, protects
