Gun casualties and incidents throughout the country have woken the public up from its ignorance and shown them the danger guns can pose to society (Martinez, 2013). While some people want a complete blanket ban on the ownership of guns, others wants an easier access to guns so that every person may look after their own security. Part of what makes the term gun control a very controversial topic is that it’s used in a ambiguous way that does not explain the details of the issue and the demands, apart from literally controlling guns. The two prominent sides of the debate are the groups who ask for liberal gun laws that make it easier for a person to procure guns and conversely, there are groups who want to repeal the second amendment. I personally am a strong believer that an “ideal society” should have no guns; nevertheless crime is a big problem to the citizens of our society and guns are necessary.
One of the most popular solutions being debated is the addition of armed guards. Parents think this might give them peace of mind during the school day. Some schools already have armed guards, many known as school resource officers. Typically, they are local police who carry their weapons in school. Many of these positions have had to be cut due to school budget cuts over the past several years.
Up to that point, this was the most significant school shooting massacre in American history. This massacre sparked an issue that was lurking in the minds of the American people – gun control. Many people think the issue of gun control just comes down to whether guns are legal or illegal. However, it delves much deeper than that; the argument has many different viewpoints with different objectives and different solutions for problems associated with gun control. The overall question that summarizes the topic may be seen as this – Is the right to bear arms more important than the safety of the general public?
While many states are trying to push for laws to help prevent school shootings from happening like stricter gun laws, more security in schools, and even in some states, the right for some teachers to carry a firearm with them in class have sparked huge debates across America. School shootings have also brought many social issues to the forefront of the attention of Americans such as gun control, violence in the media, ie video games music moves, bullying, and the way parents and teachers interact with young children and teenagers Violence in schools is truly one of the most pressing issues today. While school shootings date back as far as the American Revolution, The University of Texas massacre is widely considered to be the first mass school shooting in modern day America. The Shootings at the University of Texas were committed by Charles Whitman. Whitman was born in Fort Lake Florida to
While these issues become more and more a problem, people are beginning to speak up on each sides. From ordinary people, all the way to US senators, people are proposing new ideas that can impact the laws of gun control. Finding this perfect balance of gun control can be rather difficult, even though many people become outraged when laws are put against their side. Gun control is like many other controversial topics, exploring both sides and taking feedback as well as inputting that feedback to making new laws may be the only way a happy medium can be
Gun Control With the number of recent school shootings across the United States, gun control has been a provocative issue for many years. A large majority of American citizens believe that if gun control is strictly enforced it would rapidly reduce the jeopardy of lives. Many citizens believe they should have the right to carry a gun if not for protection of themself, but for their family as well, not to mention for the great American pastime of hunting. As long as the law is followed, Americans have a constitutional right to own hand guns; stricter laws and licensing requirements will not successfully save lives. The second amendment gives the right to American’s to bear arms; it basically states that with a well regulated military
Gun control laws have become such a huge controversy in the United States due to the fact that citizens believe their Second Amendment right is being taken away from them. In my eyes, I believe that extended gun control measures should be taken to ensure that access to assault weapons should be limited to certain people. I believe one deserve a well rounded background check to see if any mental health issues are visible. I also believe you have the right to own a weapon and the government is not trying to take away your hunting rifles, personal permitted handguns, etc. They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to.
Joe Ma English 98/99 4/20/2015 gun control is needed in America According to the Second Amendment in the Constitution, the citizens have the right to possess and bear arms. But, this has remained an important issue since decades. Issues such as gun control and gun rights have remained a matter of debate and have been lobbying around in the Congress meetings. In my views, gun should not be existing in our society because guns are assault weapons, which have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. In order to keep our society safer, guns should be limited in America.
As a parent of my own two teenagers, being in agreement with their choice of clothing sometimes comes to a battle stand. I do not want my children exposing themselves any more than necessary to the public in general or at school. As a result, Wayne County School District Board is convening soon to again review the dress code policy that is in place for our county. Uniforms and stricter dress codes are ever becoming the more positive choice at hand, both the educators and for parents like me. Much to the chagrin of my teens, I will be voting in favor of uniforms, or the strictest dress code policy options available.
One solution about the problem may be to speak up about the problem. How will anyone know that gun violence is a problem and must be stopped? “Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed” A great quote that support this solution. We need to speak up, adults as well as our young children. Adults can speak to the young children and let them know what’s right from wrong considering our young children are the ones being targeting when it comes to gun play as well as violence.
