What if that was one of your family member, wouldn’t you want them to be able to protect themselves? I would think so. Many people don’t think of gun violence this way but, it is very true. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” It’s the person behind the gun that causes the death and deviation known with gun violence. So gun control is not the answer to the problem.
Should people have the right to bear arms? George Washington once said, “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” Americans need to fight to keep the second amendment. Gun ownership is necessary for self defense in your home and on the streets and to decrease crime in communities and neighborhoods; and taking away the Second Amendment will make America less of a free country. Eliminating the second Amendment will make it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves against psychos with guns.
In conclusion, I am currently against gun control because I want to make sure that innocent citizens can have access to guns and be able to protect themselves against criminals when they need to. Until the government can find more effective ways to control criminals’ access to guns, I will be against gun
Gun control ENG/102 8/11/10 Brian Kevin Gun control 1 Introduction: Gun control advocates have cried foul, because of the Supreme Court 2010 ruling they believe will damage the chances gun control laws to reduce crime. While many people consider gun control to be too restrictive, advocates are of the mind that we should remove all the guns, at all cost. The Supreme Court ruling has mandated that state and city governments have no choice but to respect the Second Amendment of their citizens. While the ruling does not completely abolish current gun restrictions, it does weaken the ability of the local government to
Some people feel that the issue of gun control will limit crime and the fact that guns are necessary for self-defense against crime, and that enforcing gun control is a violation against a citizen’s second amendment right to bear arms. Possession of a handgun should be strictly regulated, because they are made solely to kill, and they have even allowed children to easily kill themselves and others, and they have increased the murder rate in the U.S. The reason handguns should be outlawed from citizens is that their main purpose is to kill other human beings. Why would our country allow us to have a right of possessing a deadly weapon? For the most part, our government seems to want to
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. Therefore, it is not recommended that we ban guns completely. The most pragmatic thing to do is to reduce the availability of guns and make it difficult to procure them by making sure that they are given only to people who are mentally capable of handling them. There is a definite need to ban guns since their liberal usage leads to large-scale public massacres, which are suited for the field of war, not civilized society. Weapons like automatic rifles and assault weapons are tools created with the purpose of mass killings.
Gun control laws are put into place to protect the American people. Everyday crimes are committed with guns, but everyday guns are also used for protection against crimes, such as home invasions. The NRA is against gun control laws, because it violates some second amendment rights. (Reassessing, 1991.) Then are those who hate guns, are terrified of guns, and think guns should all be illegal.
Gun shops and outdoor outlets are not the preferred place for criminals to obtain a weapon. Gun shops are sources for law-abiding citizens to make their purchases. Citizens who own and carry a gun are themselves a deterrent to violent crimes. Professors James D. Wright and Peter Rossi of the Social and Demographic Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts were of the opinion that strict gun control deterred
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.
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.
