The Second Amendment is a law that was formulated to give the citizens of The United States of America the right to own and bear firearms. More gun control laws have been set in place as a deterrent for criminals to purchase firearms. Gun control laws are not the only way to avoid and protect criminals from purchasing firearms. Even with the gun control laws, debates, the Second Amendment and the Tiahrt Amendment, there is a lack of enforcement of these laws which has caused more violence. There also has not been a reduction in the number of criminals with guns.
This plan includes (1) closing background check loopholes; (2) banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; and (3) improving mental health services.  Although the president's plan is well within the confines of the Constitution, the limits imposed by the Court, combined with a fragmented mental health system, mean that no constitutionally permissible plan will be fully effective (citation). Still, the president's plan could reduce the devastating toll of firearm injuries and deaths through a public health strategy. Whether a massacre of grade-school children in a Connecticut town will alter the political dynamics of gun control remains unclear. The nation can only hope that the worst tragedies will inspire the greatest bipartisan
When someone thinks of the word “handgun” their minds will automatically think of something small, concealable, and deadly. What some people do not realize is that it is not handguns that commit the crime, but the hands and actions of the criminal. Allowing handguns to remain legal will allow individuals to feel safer and secure in their homes and it also protects our constitutional right to bear arms. Banning handguns will not only increase crime, but it will create a new situation that is similar to drug trafficking. With rising crime rates, law abiding citizens should be buying handguns to protect themselves.
XXXX XXXXXX Dr. Faust English 1010-52 10 December 2012 Guns Do Not Kill People The Constitution states that we have the right to keep and bare arms, but some people have decided that is not an American right. They will do whatever it takes to change Amendment 2. There is an anonymous quote that is used by the NRA (national rifle association) to this day: “if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.” No more gun laws should be passed because: laws do not keep guns away from criminals, guns are an effective way of self-defense, and guns are safe if taught how to used properly. Gun laws do not keep guns out of the hands of criminals. All they do is leave law abiding citizens completely defenseless against robberies burglaries and any random shooting of a mad man.
Edward Valiente English 120 Professor Taylor 11/20/11 Gun Control The United States is the leader among nations in deaths caused by firearms. According to the Legal Community Against Violence (LCAV), the “gun epidemic” kills more than 30,000 and causes almost 70,000 injuries each year (para 7). Eventually, this leads to an uprising of gun control advocates, who seek to reduce crime and death rates by setting a variety of gun control legislation among the state and federal levels. Although, anti-gun control advocates believe that heavy restrictions on the access of firearms is unfair to American citizens, and a violation of the 2nd amendment in the U.S. constitution. However, evidence shows that a lower restriction on gun control ensures
Gun Control Laws in America Firearms should not be restricted, nor should their accessories or capabilities. Placing laws that take away from our right to bear arms would only give negative effect on the safety of the general public and the amount of crimes committed. People need guns to protect themselves from the people who want to corrupt their lives by using guns, regardless of the law. Gun control laws vary from state to state. In the republic of California, some would say we have some of the worst laws and restrictions in the country.
These gun owners maintain that an unregulated right to bear arms is guaranteed to citizens by the 2nd amendment and this position received support in a Supreme Court decision issued in 2008 which disallowed a Washington D.C. complete ban on handguns. Opponents of gun control argue that gun owners often use their weapons to deter crime and that handguns are most commonly used for this purpose. “Research also shows that many laws do not significantly diminish the number of guns used in violence, although many advocates of gun control assumed they would” (Zimring 48).Some studies have shown that such defensive use of weapons occurs at a much greater rate than the extent to which weapons are used in criminal activity although the validity of these studies is in dispute. Gun control opponents are generally law abiding citizens who put greater trust in individualism than in the government to protect their safety. They are concerned that each step toward greater gun control will lead to the eventual confiscation of all firearms.

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
