Banning all or some weapons is not the solution to decreasing the increased gun related violence in the United States. Having stricter gun laws and measures could keep weapons out of the hands of criminals, people with mental illness, or individuals with bad intentions. Limiting the number of bullets a magazine can hold will not keep these types of individuals from committing a crime. The solution that will not affect the responsible gun owners would be to have stricter gun control laws, thorough background checks with mental health assessment,
In this article, McGoey starts by talking about the violence that have taken place in our schools in the recent years. He does not feel that the solution to America’s problem is as easy and blunt as banning all guns nor adding more regulation because it would easily increase the black market(2). To stop such horrific violence, it must be pulled out at the roots. Careful look at the past incidents shows that evidence of potential violence is found in different areas of the ones that are committing such acts; home, computer, notebook, and school lockers (7). Video games have become more real than ever before.
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.
He had to come up with a plan to satisfy the House of Representatives and Congress. Some pros for gun control would be that it might bring the number of accidental shootings down. An example would be that a household would not have a lot of guns just sitting around, and the little children could not just shoot it by accident. Also, depending on what guns they would rule out, the gangs would not be able to get a hold of certain guns as easily. I am not saying they would not get them, but it would be more difficult to find them.
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.
Jhalan Jackson English Gun Control Guns can be used to harm people, or can protect the life of millions who have encountered a near death experience to a gun. Most people might be for gun control, which can have its positive, but can also have its negatives. People need to realize this is a world a cruel world we live in and the use of guns can also save the lives of many. So, why not protect yourself with justified actions? There are too many guns in the streets to take control of them all, therefore forget about trying to take control of the gun, and take control of a life or death situation.
In a country full of violent crime, the United States continues to embody the gun as integral to it's protection and culture. While the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution grants the people the right to bear arms, the people must on the contrary protect themselves from those who bear them. In my view, guns give people a false sense of security and are more of a nuisance than a benefit. Guns are a threat to the peace and safety of society. Therefore, since it is unlikely that all guns will disappear in the United States, legislation must be enacted to ban and cease the further manufacture of the types of firearms involved in more violent crime than all others; handguns and assault-weapons.
Some disagree and think stricter laws will not help, like the article titled “The Case Against Banning Guns” by Shiha Dalmai. According to that article we should be “... focusing less on preemptively thwarting prospective attackers and instead boosting the defense capacities of prospective victims.” I disagree. We cannot fight gun violence with more gun violence. Furthermore, just because we have guns does not mean we can use them safely or that we will be safe. The best example of this is the American Sniper Chris Kyle.
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.
Banning or restricting guns does not necessarily mean there would be less crime. There are more factors to increased gun violence than simply accessibility. Furthermore, although outlawing guns could possibly decrease firearm related casualties. One must realize that it is highly probable that this would increase injuries connected to crimes. I absolutely agree with the current laws prohibiting felons from possessing a firearm as well as making sure guns are out of a child’s reach.
