Control Gun There are many different opinion of what causes crime. Some people say crimes caused by guns and some say the cause is the people before the guns. In New York Time Magazine on 1994 an argument essay printed by the author James Q Wilson which is “ Just Take Away Their Gun’’. Wilson wrote the opinion of government and public in the first paragraph. He mention what is the president and public want from gun control laws even the public think all new government laws will not work to reduce the illegal used of gun.
Gun Control It seems that frequently after a gun related tragedy get[s] the national attention of the nation, there is an attempt to discuss what, if anything, we can do to address gun related violence in the United States. We citizens must not wait for tragedy to strike for us to take action. Gun Control should have been on the top of the list of things to do to keep our nation safe. We must not continue to point fingers at Washington, or our own local state government, we have to get gun control on the table to find the solution. We need more gun control in our nation because; we will reduce the percentage of violent crime that goes on in our communities.
Even though, since 1968, more than three hundred thousand Americans have been murdered by guns. Today, only cars cause more fatal injury. Recently, the average number of people killed by a handgun per year is twenty-four thousand. The U.S. Congress and state legislatures have debated restrictions on gun ownership for some time. Efforts to fight crime are best served by focusing on the criminal element and not with gun control legislation.
Should Assault Weapons and Large Magazine Clips be banned? Does banning assault weapons, reduce gun violence? The debate on banning assault weapons has increased recently after the recent mass shootings that have occurred over the last few years such as the ones in Aurora Colorado, Newtown, Connecticut. Both pro-gun activist and anti-gun activist have been in heated battle, with the former wanting to safeguard the right to own guns, while the latter wants laws to be enacted banning assault weapons. At the core of this argument is whether if assault weapons are banned the resulting effect will be that gun violence will reduce.
Therefore, there will be a consistent controversy to see who will be responsible the safety of anyone who believes in the Second Amendment. First, many tragedies have occurred in the world and in the United States due to increase of violence. For instance, in July 2012, a gunman opened fire in a Colorado movie theatre, killing twelve. In addition, an even more a horrendous act occurred in December 14, 2012, when a mentally ill twenty year old man attacked a school
There will never be a world with no violence, but guns do there part to contain it. There are only bad things that can come from gun regulation; it can ruin American lives, it can take American lives, and it goes against what our founding fathers thought should be a long lasting American law. Guns have been around for hundreds of years and the technology will keep improving and the fugitives as well as the criminals will continue having guns no matter what kind of law is implemented. We might as well have the ability to protect ourselves and our families from them. As Adolf Hitler once said, "This year will go down in history.
However, tragedies such as Sandy Hook give us even more of a reason why firearms shouldn’t be banned. A lethal criminal gunman sees a school as a weaponless haven full of vulnerable victims, making them the easiest places to perform their psychotic plans. I believe that some of these massacres could be prevented if places, such as schools, have a security guard who is armed and trained for these situations. In 2007, a gunman entered a Colorado church and shot and killed two girls. A former police officer who was volunteering at the church “drew her firearm, shot and wounded the gunman before he could kill anyone else,” as stated in Bennett’s article.
The Need for Stricter Gun Control Laws Nine thousand, four hundred, and eighty four (9,484) people died in handgun incidents in the United States during 2008. This number is drastically higher than gun related deaths in foreign countries such as Germany with two hundred and sixty nine (269), the United Kingdom had just fourteen (14), and Australia had only fifty nine (59). The reason for such a drastic difference in these numbers is because Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia have stricter gun control laws as well as requiring gun safety courses. These laws directly affect the number of deaths related to the misuse of handguns each year. If the United States chooses to adopt some of those foreign laws and regulations the
Gun Control in the United States English 102 “The fact that we can’t prevent every act of violence doesn’t mean we can’t gradually decrease the violence.” These are the words from President Obama as he speaks on all the tragedies that have taken place in the U.S such as; the mass shooting that killed twenty-six people in Connecticut at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the mentally ill soldier from Fort Hood, Texas that killed himself after killing three and wounding sixteen. It is definitely time for people to come to an agreement on what need to be done about all this violence. Stricter gun laws will reduce criminals and the wrong people from having it easy to get a gun. The second amendment can still be respected while keeping people
He and others like Gabrielle Giffords are even bringing the parents of the children who were lost in Sandy Hook to make tearful pleas to pass the amendment. Gabrielle Giffords is yet another example that proves my theory. She was shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner in 2011 in the middle of a constituent meeting she held. Loughner was expelled from college for disruptive behavior and was showing many signs of mental distress prior to the shooting. So much so that his parents disabled his car at night and took his shot gun away from him.
