So why shouldn’t law abiding citizens be able to do the same and be able to protect themselves. The deterrent effect of a concealed weapon would benefit the person and the general public that is doing the same. Because the criminals out there wouldn’t know who is armed and who is not. That would in turn get some criminals to think twice about going after someone who is also potentially armed and knowing that their life would also be in danger. I feel some crimes that have taken place in this country could have been stopped or lessened to a degree with a concealed firearm.

A gun control initiative to be focused on would be stricter gun control laws and measures which would help crack down on gun crimes while encouraging responsible gun ownership and the use among civilians. Stricter gun control laws would also limit the ability for individuals with bad intentions from obtaining weapons, but it would allow responsible individuals from obtaining these weapons that others want to
If the fault is not on the police, Slager has to be punished. For now the outcome is unknown, but he will not get away. There more important question here is: “What, if there were not any video, which confirms his fault?” Close to nobody could prove that the shots were fired without any reason. The conclusion of this is: To prevent such shootings from happening more video cameras for police officers are needed. Body-mounted cameras enable the police to police themselves better.
At times I feel as if I am incarcerated, even though I am a free citizen. I think the solution to ridding gun violence is to get rid of all the guns. Since that'll never happen, we need to make guns less accessible by creating federal legislation, applying it uniformly throughout every state. Easy gun accessibility is the reason why there are so many homicides because it is easier to pull a trigger than by attacking with a knife or other foreign object. I feel that handguns and assault weapons should be outlawed altogether because too many people misuse them.
More gun control laws will fix this and make it significantly harder for bad people to obtain guns. Others may think that it is an invasion of privacy to make people undergo background checks before obtaining a gun. Indeed, for a few people, background checks will be considered an invasion of privacy. However, it is very necessary. If there were not any background checks before owning a gun, it is possible for a terrorist or criminal to acquire a gun, like they can now.
Gun Violence Essay I believe if the government started banning guns and other weapons it would not limit gun violence. Just trying to ban a weapon or guns, wouldn’t stop the person from trying to commit the crime he or she is wanting to commit. I believe the only way they could reduce it is if they actually go door to door to every house in the United States and take every gun that that person has, and that still wouldn’t be enough. People will eventually find out that that’s what the government is doing and most likely try to hide their weapons if they wanted to keep them that bad. That’s why I think it would only reduce gun violence, not make it go away completely.
The general ideal of the deterrence method suggest that one punishment is enough to deter other people if the situation is take care of quickly enough. General deterrence basically believes if young people see that society both intends to punish criminal acts, they will be deterred from committing a crime by the factors and awareness. The more severe and swift the punishment is, then the greater of the deterrent effect. An example could be having more police officers on the streets, thus convincing potential delinquents that they will be caught. Specific deterrence method focuses on the fact that if an individual is punished strongly for one crime, then they will not commit this crime again out of fear of punishment.
This is a level of control employed by police officers minus the aid of equipment or weapons. These are two subcategories called soft empty hand techniques and hard empty hand techniques. * If suspect starts swinging on you, you can start using your tools such as baton but don’t be too aggressive. Breaking of the back is permitted because you want to stop the threat. * Deadly Force * If a peace officer has probabl cause to believe that a suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious bodily injury to the officer or others then the use of deadly force is justified.
