I am not saying they would not get them, but it would be more difficult to find them. Cons for gun control are that if they ban some clips for a .22 rifle, I would not be able to keep my magazine unless they rule that a big clip is smaller than a certain number. Some people would disagree that having any kind of gun control is bad. The big gun enthusiasts think that nothing is going to change except for the temper of the
“Gun Violence in Philadelphia”. In recent years the city of Philadelphia has become a war zone due gun violence. Innocent bystanders and police officers are all becoming the victims. Even though we have the right to bear arms, who will we blame for gun violence in Philadelphia? Innocent people are dying and the guns laws aren't changing.
“Gun Control: Understanding the Misunderstood” It can be overwhelming to turn on the local news station or flip idly into your Sunday morning paper only to be bombarded with, “So-and-so killed this many with this weapon.” Oh, what a travesty America, how could this have happened? When a sadistic sociopath makes their big break in the world of disinformation usually, they bring about the most discussed question of the past few decades with them. Should guns be controlled? This question is interesting for the fact that in every sense of it, all it takes to get the answer you want is a very local interaction involving a firearm. Craig R. Whitney does a fantastic job in looking into the homeland patrol of guns and ammunition but fails to look at the entirety of the situation.
However, Arthur Strang neglecting to keep his gun stored in a safe place is not a good enough reason to take away guns from the millions of responsible gun owners. What happened to the child was unfortunate, a terrible accident. But “They Each Had A Gun” raises a good point; more children by far die by fire than by guns, yet we do not ban or license matches. The same situation with Arthur Strang’s son and Bruce Kammerer could have taken place if you replace the gun with a knife or an accidental swing of a baseball bat, yet we are not in a rush to ban these items because that is not their only purpose. The same applies to a
In the gun control argument, I stand with the side that wants more gun control and less permission to carry a gun. There are many rules that I am against that are for guns, like to buy a gun you only get a background check and that’s it, I think you should get checked every year, and not only should they do a background check, they should also do a psychological test, and you should have to go to a course on guns and gun use every time you want to renew the license. There have been a lot of accidents around the country because of this issue of gun control, people are acquiring guns way too easily and are not using them properly, if you are buying a gun then like it should either be for hunting animals or for self-defense. They shouldn’t use them just because they don’t like the person or because of revenge or other stupid motives like those.
Can The Government Take Away Certain Eights "For our own good"? The United States Government has been trying to take away certain gun rights from citizens for years, such as gun control, gun licensing, and even owning a gun unless working for the government. They say it's for safety, controllment, and even better "Our own good". Even though most people own guns for safety or self-defense, hunting animals, or even just target practice in the back yard, although, some use them for other reasons that are not good. If the government were to do this, do they realize the consequences?
The main reason is media. Think about it, all you ever see on the news is gun violence. You always see a detailed story on the latest mass shooting and you hear of it days later but you never see that story were a man defended his family from an armed assailant. You never see stories that show firearms under a positive light they are shown to the public as devil’s work.

Gun Control “Opponents to gun control laws argue ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people”’(ProQuest Staff). Gun Violence is a major problem in the United States today considering the current gun control regulations are ineffective; however, laws can be made to accommodate for this and still allow the citizens to protect themselves from danger. “The role of guns in violence, and what should be done, are subjects of intense debate in the United States and elsewhere” (Webster). The people who have either seen, heard, or read news stories on gun policies might have come to the conclusion that mass shootings, the mentally ill, and assault weapons are the primary concerns in the debates; gun control laws disarm law-abiding citizens and fail
Gun Laws “Freeze, hands up!” Those are the words thought to be heard most when guns are around. But in reality those are just the words used toward criminals after their crimes are committed. What about the words associated with guns used to save lives in home invasion situations where the man of the house tells the thief their armed? Anti-gun activists believe that concealed carry of guns by normal citizens will end up with blood in the streets. The activists believe people will have gun fights over things as simple as parking spaces.
The United States homicide rate in 25% higher when compared to murder rates in other high-income countries, therefore there is clearly something that other countries are doing that we are not. In Canada, for one to get a gun, he or she must have a license that takes 60 days to obtain. They also must take a gun training course, and then should pass a universal background check that focuses on mental, criminal and addiction history. In the United Kingdom, semi-automatic rifles, pump-action rifles, machine guns, and any firearm that has a barrel less than 30 centimeters in length are banned (Laville et al.). But most importantly, for us to adapt some of the laws that make our fellow high-income country’s homicide rate so low, the Congress needs to discuss this issue, without the interference of bribes or money, but by simply exploring the facts and the results of our gun
