Do Stricter Gun-Control Laws Help Prevent Gun-Related Injuries/Deaths? Gun control arguments are a hot topic in America and around the world; it is a topic not likely to go away anytime soon. Arguments for and against carry their own merit and can be lengthy and broad by nature, but our intent is to debate the effect of gun-control laws and the effect they have on gun-related injuries/deaths. The argument presented here will get to the crux of why laws should or should not be enacted to prevent social ills. Most agree that gun-related injury or death of innocent citizens should never be tolerated, but there are opinions on the course to take in an effort to discover a solution.
Its importance it literally unparalleled in our governing system and it is just a shame that in the worst case they are not even looking to reform the second amendment, rather destroy it and take all the guns. If the defense of the Constitution is our number one agenda then we as a nation should stop trying to downplay its everlasting
Alas, you are a devout gun control supporter and do not have any means of which to defend yourself from such an attack. How can this be that a criminal is carrying a gun when the new gun control laws are in effect? The answer is quite simple: Criminals do not follow the law! Gun control is not an effective means of curbing gun-related violence. The only people that benefit from gun control are the criminal element.
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 Control I do not believe in gun control. In this paper, I am going to tell you why I believe that gun control is not necessary. I hope that I am able to persuade you in this paper to believe that guns should not be controlled. In my opinion, hunting would be much more difficult because you could not use certain guns, and this is not fair to the hunter. In my research of this topic, I have found a lot of political debates in which many political figures are found saying they are on one side or the other.
A more recent study suggests that changes to Canada’s gun control law have had an effect on accidental firearm death rates, particularly in males. (Boyd, p. 35) Criminologists are sure that gun control must exist and be rather strict to avoid countless victims. Certainly, rate of crime must be regulated through many tools : penalties, fines, confiscation but gun control plays the supreme role. I deem Canadian gun control system should not be changed, for its work is an effecient one. I think that several amendments should be addopted.
Haydn Collyer Topic: Gun Control Writing 122 9/25/12 The topic of gun control is a highly disputed one. I believe that America has more important matters to attend to rather than getting into a dispute over something that has been argued since its creation, firearms. To the average American a “gun” is something that is only made for killing and is only found in the hands of villains, criminals and law enforcement/military. I am here to tell you that that is not the case at all. Millions of honest Americans own guns.
The application of stricter gun control laws will in fact hinder law enforcement agencies across America. During the Brady Band law enforcement agencies, although approved, had complications getting what is considered to be an assault rifle for official duties. Many law enforcement agencies had to settle for a less superior weapon than the combatant they faced. This event is a far too common on street patrol across America. When our trust is put into someone else’s hands do you want these everyday hero’s to be out gunned by superior weaponry.
Jennie Kartchner English 1010 Bryce Dixon Tuesday/Thursday 11/13/2010 Gun Control: Are we violating the Second Amendment? Gun control, as we know it, consists of the government restricting the ability of individual citizens to purchase weapons. The different types of gun control vary from waiting periods between when you purchase the gun and when you actually get it, background checks so that high-risk people can't purchase guns through legal channels, and completely banning certain types of guns. With the Second Amendment giving American citizens the right to bear arms, and approximately fifty percent of Americans owning some form of a firearm, issues involving the ownership and possession of guns
In a country full of violent crime, the United States continues to embody the gun as integral to it's protection and culture. While the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution grants the people the right to bear arms, the people must on the contrary protect themselves from those who bear them. In my view, guns give people a false sense of security and are more of a nuisance than a benefit. Guns are a threat to the peace and safety of society. Therefore, since it is unlikely that all guns will disappear in the United States, legislation must be enacted to ban and cease the further manufacture of the types of firearms involved in more violent crime than all others; handguns and assault-weapons.
