The say that what is a good idea is not the blanket ban of guns, which is unconstitutional because of new meaning of the second amendment, but rather a continuation of the current limits of guns and gun owners. It may not be “constitutional” for the government to put a complete ban on weapons, but it is proper for it to enact stronger restrictions to keep the rather terrifying weapons away from the people who cannot be trusted with a knife, much less than that of a
“The government's responsibility is to trust, encourage and rely upon We the People. It is not to infringe upon our God-given rights, especially not enforcement of unconstitutional and liberty-killing violations like "gun control" laws (Barnhart 1). With this being said, not all gun legislation is detrimental to our rights, but rather is for our protection from those who would seek to do us harm. “The underlying gun control bill Democrats wrote includes language intended to crack down on gun trafficking and straw purchases, as well as funding for school safety provisions. But it also includes even stiffer background checks” (Sherfinski 1).
Why would a criminal follow gun control laws if he or she is already going to break the law to commit a crime? The gun control laws will be only hurting the law abiding citizens that enjoy using their gun rights for sport such as hunting. Gun control laws will be only taking away a form of protection that some people desperately need. Gun Control laws will only tear this country more apart and create more conflict between Democrats and Republicans. The United States Government needs to allow citizens to keep their rights and protection and live the way Americans have lived for the past two hundred
The opposition believes that allowing regular people to carry conceal weapons would make society and the public unsafe. It would become unsafe because regular people do not know how to safely use their guns. Implimeting a course were a person would learn gun safety and how to properly use a gun will make the average person safer with a gun. To be able to have a concealed permit you would have to pass a course and at the end of the course a person would have to show competency on gun safety and that they can safely use their gun to receive their permit and gun. This course would give a regular person who wants to carry a concealed weapon the chance to learn about gun safety and how to properly use his gun.

Can we allow ourselves to become completely defenseless against someone trying to hurt or kill us? Should we allow everyone to have a gun and know how to use it? Some people believe that we should have more gun control, making it so that only the police and other people of authority carried guns then the world would be a safer place. They believe that making it harder or impossible to purchase guns will result in less crime and less people getting killed. Under this train of thought people would feel safer.
In America they need to create better safety gun controls. They should have a smart gun, which the gun only fires in the hands of its owner which have a companion watch on. If a person doesn’t have the companion watch those guns would not be allowed to fire. As gun control is such a controversial topic that leads to arguments of whether it should be legalized or not, the idea that we would not be able to defend ourselves, should the need arise, is a horrific nightmare and almost a terrible reality. Legalizing gun control will only further the pain caused to our country through the many instances that have occurred in the past and recently.
Some people believe that if no one had guns there would be no crime however, criminals will still find ways to get guns and this will leave everyone else unarmed and vulnerable. The complete banning of guns would not solve the issue of violent crimes it would only remove guns from the hands of individuals who need them for protection.
