I am sick and tired of hearing all the talk about guns and how their use should be controlled. Why do guns have to be registered? Why do people that desire to have a gun have to pass a background check in order to obtain one? So what if the person desiring a gun is an ex con convicted of armed robbery, out on parole. Is that really any one's business?
If more people know the pros and cons of the facts about firearms, they will reconsider their opinion on not only the possession of a firearm, but its usage as well. This brings up the topic of concealed carry. The official definition of “concealed carry” is the practice of carrying a weapon in public in a concealed manner. (Either on one’s person or in close proximity.) Although this does pose a security threat, it would be the solution to many of the crimes that are committed.
The Development of Policing Taneka Lewis AJS/502 Timothy Cariker April 7, 2014 The Development of Policing Policing has been a major part of society for decades. Men and women across the United States risk their lives to ensure that people they know and do not know remain safe. The police and their place in government is a vital key in society. Our modern day law enforcement has continued to change as the demand for more peace rises. Thanks to a man named Sir Robert Peel we have today what is known as police departments, police officers, and police uniforms.
The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.  With the second amendment allowing the common citizen the right to bear guns, one can legally apply and obtain a license to carry with them these weapons. Thus, the common people are armed awarding them with the ability of fighting chance against possible tyranny. Of Course, the idea of our American government committing such horrible, imposing, and unwanted acts on its people and the people actually forming a militia and treason to fight back sounds ridiculous in today’s reality; it does not mean it will never happened. After all, where would the United States be today without the original colonies arming themselves, forming militia, and performing a bit of treason.
One can do many things to you with a gun in their hand, from a robbery to a murder. Simply, most Americans are afraid of one another. Besides, are guns really the best protection against others? It is always possible to have a decent alarm system for robberies, to have a dog when outside in the neighborhood or simply learn martial arts for self-protection. Martial arts are created for self defense so why don’t people spend more time learning them instead of wasting their money on a gun which can break or be used against their own will?
The criminal who is predisposed to carrying a gun will not hesitate to use it at a moments notice. However, the law-abiding citizen is governed by a higher set of values. The criminal points a gun at you and says give me your money has come to the situation fully intending to rob you and shoot you if needed. The victim on the other hand cannot simply think he is going to be robbed and pull his weapon. The police are trained in “shoot” and “do not shoot” situations.
Not Needed: Strict Gun Control Laws Many people today think we need to have stricter laws about gun control, and although many crimes are committed in the United States every day, they are committed by using various instruments to carry out these wrongdoings. One such weapon is the firearm, and laws have been enacted to reduce the sale of such weapons to the scofflaws, and protect the law-abiding citizen for some time. Some people believe the laws in effect now don’t do enough to keep the guns out of criminal’s hands. The problem is these people don’t follow the law, so they go behind the scenes to purchase these weapons, and then use them against the law-abiding citizens these laws were passed to protect. The gun control laws in this country
But guns change how people kill people, and they change how people view killing. When someone has a gun the question of how they respond to a situation changes, for better or worse, because they have an option that they didn’t have before. These changes are what we need to be discussing if we want to be able to advocate effectively for or against gun control. We need to ask ourselves questions like whether guns make individuals more or less inclined towards confrontation. The Sandy Hook shooting has led to more discussion about gun policy on social media than previous rampages.
(McGovern, 212, p. 496) Fundamental or not there is a need for regulations for gun control without infringing on citizens right to bear arms. More attention needs to be focused on the individual committing the crimes and not necessarily on the tools they used to commit the crime. Yes the gun may have been behind the mass tragedies but it did not act on its own. There had to be some party behind the gun and that is who needs to be looked at. With all the laws, rules, and regulations already in place in regards to firearm, these heinous crimes are still being committed and those that should not have access to or should not be purchasing firearms still do.
Gun control People are afraid of leaving their places after dark; unfortunaly, there are no supper heroes to save the world from evil like the movies. Then, it difficult to survive and protect the family because the goverment can't guarantee complete security for everbody. That is the reason people need weapons to feel safe. But it be asserted that the problem is solved? How do you feel if the society where people can buy weapons legally or the ones where you could not even own a weapon?
