(Jost 907) However, in the recent years, the laws become loose because of too many ammunition smuggling. Such as Mexico, if the gun control is strict enough for it, it won’t available to spread out to others countries. Beside, according to Kenneth Jost, there are many different sounds from the society that talks about this issue for thirty years after the firearms law have set up. (1107) The upholders of gun controls denounce gun abuse and too many gun accidents and self-killed. They think the laws and licensing are loose.
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.
The federal government has awarded grants to police departments in excess of $34 billion dollars since 2011 to purchase military equipment. The author believes that this military appearance of the police is pushing the citizens away from being able to trust in the police to protect them during events such as the one in Ferguson, Missouri. While I can see the author’s point of view on this, I can’t help but to disagree. I believe that it shouldn’t matter how the police are dressed or what kind of weapons they are carrying. Obeying the law all boils down to one thing.
Majority of the laws that congress is passing are only good for the typical Caucasian male and not for the African American male and or the African American teen male that typically tends to end up in the worst case situation. The reason I say it is typically for the Caucasian male is because the laws that we have on guns are more along the lines for hunting like the NRA law that states that “as long as you are 13 with a hunters license you can buy and or sell a hunters rifle”. If you ask me the NRA doesn’t know how to control themselves let alone a gun. Many people think that since the NRA has been in business since the 1720s they know what they are talking but that’s not the case. A movement to ban handguns began in the 1920s in the Northeastern, led by the conservative business establishment.
For instance, the government has banned certain types of guns from the country. Another gun control law makes a five day wait on the purchase of a handgun so a check can be run on the person’s history. Despite these laws the amount of felonious gun activity has not decreased. Many people are demanding that the government issue stricter gun control laws. One idea being considered is that gun manufacturers should be held responsible
Should the United States abolish gun ownership? Introduction: The gun control debate poses the basic question: Who is more trustworthy, the government or the people? Argument A: Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional. Increases in gun control laws in the United States of America are unconstitutional because the Second Amendment states that we have right to bear arms, citizens have the democratic ideal of life or justice, and statistics show that states with more gun rights have a lower crime rate. (Emotional arguments) Gun control is based on the faulty notion that ordinary American citizens are too clumsy and ill-tempered to be trusted with weapons.
Not only did this study state that the weapons banned were only used in a small percent of crimes even before the ban, but also "found no statistical evidence of post-ban decreases in either the number of victims per gun-homicide incident, the number of gunshot wounds per victim, or the proportion of gunshot victims with multiple wounds. "(Koper, Roth 67) So even if Congress bans these vaguely named assault weapons it will most likely be as ineffective as the last time they did so. Some take issue with the ban not because of its’ functionality problems, but because they feel it violates their rights as
Private Citizens should have handguns and not military weapons. It cannot be denied that if more people are allowed to own and carry guns, deaths and injuries from the weapons will also subsequently increase. However, the solution does not exist alone in any one law. Americans should restore the ban on military style assault weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines and enforce existent gun laws because weapons of war have no place on our streets. No law or set of laws can
Gun laws Laws over guns in America have been a well-debated topic over for many years. Should we put complete bans on them, and have a government buy back like many other countries, or do we stay true to the second amendment the “Right to bear arms.” The problem is that congress is too scared to do anything about the gun laws for fear of an outburst by the nation, so the issue sits idle until, one day something will have to change. My belief is that there has been too many crimes, too many tragedies involving guns. Too often do we hear that a man, woman, or child have been shot and killed, sometimes by accident too. On the contrary, I am a firm believer in our bill of rights; I believe that they are a good foundation of our government.
The Supreme Court ruled that the right to bear arms applies to the to the local and state level. This lifted a gun ban that was around for almost 30 years in Chicago. This decision didn’t determine what kind of gun laws could be applied. The Senate is currently discussing and is in favor of expanding background checks. In the United States, there are over 300 million guns in circulation and this does not take into account the illegal production of guns.
