I’m against gun control because I like shooting guns. I wish gun owners weren 't limited to their selection. Because there is a law called 2nd amendment that says that you have the right to bear arms. There are a lot of people that live in america and are scared of guns and don 't like it, I think part of the reason is because the image people bring to when thought of guns, protection and hunting should be the only reason why a gun should be fired. In the United States of America, there is something called second amendment , it gives you the right to own a gun and protect and arm yourself if things went south they would have a chance.
It’s tragic to say that gun violence, such as mass shootings happen so often in today’s society. Compared to countries around the world, the United States has the highest mass shooting rate. In our country we tend to blame our mass shootings and homicides on guns, but without a human behind it guns are harmless. Instead of banning these firearms all together, which may only cause an uprising in illegally owning guns, why don’t we strengthen our gun control laws? By banning people the right to carry and own a gun, we are restricting them of their basic rights.
Many gun advocates question how banning the use of guns for the civilians in U.S. would help protect the civilians when there are so many other forms of weapons that can replace guns (Adcock, “Harvard study reveals gun control counterproductive). In reality,
Having gun control would help lessen the deaths by firearms in the country for a variety of reasons. Solutions can be made to help the problems with death by guns in the United States, this in term may fix the problems with the second amendment. One solution that may help the situation of the second amendment is the accessibility to certain guns .Many mass shootings include military-style weapons ,such as assault rifles, which are more powerful than normal guns and prove to be highly lethal. In an article by Infobase Learning called "Assault Weapons: Should the government restrict access to assault weapons?" done in 2016 it talks about what happened in the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting it states, “...20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children aged 6 and 7, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, before killing himself.
Several Americans think if we get rid of our second amendment there will be less shooting’s and deaths, but that is not true. Some cities in the United States already have strict gun laws, and it’s a fact that those cities have the highest assault and murder rates. If that happens across the whole country imagine all of the crime and shootings we will have. Innocent people will not have the right to protect themselves. Yes, I believe that there should be background checks to purchase a gun, but background checks will not always keep someone from getting a gun.
Pursuing this further sixty-seven to twenty-nine percent support a nationwide ban on assault weapons. Furthermore, eighty-three to fourteen percent want a mandatory wait so if one wants to use a gun for a crime they will have wait and if they already have a criminal past they will not be able to get the firearm. For example, if one wants to buy a gun to commit suicide they will have to wait and maybe when they finally are able to get the firearm they do not want to commit such fatal incident. These laws will be stricter but it will be for the good of the people. Also, foreign invaders would not be able to commit a massacre.
There are many suicides each year from people who carry or know someone who does or has a family member who carries. The ironic thing is that if people didn’t have the right to carry concealed handguns, most crimes, deaths and injuries would not happen because it would just be harder to get ahold of guns. Concealed handguns can easily cause the risk of unnecessary shootings. Disagreements will happen and instead of a possible fist fight a person 's anger can escalate and a gun could be pulled out and that disagreement or fight turns into a deadly shooting accident. Our society today is so lazy that there may be many that would not go through the trouble just to get a gun.
Benefits of Gun Control There are many reasons why Gun Control should be in existence. One of the biggest reasons for passing gun control laws is that generally, the most violent crimes are committed with guns, mainly assault weapon style guns, therefore it is a good idea to attempt to limit firearms that are not needed in civilian lives. Individuals who have been bullied in the past, have issues with co-workers, as well as people who are not in the right state of mind, etc. may be less likely or able to obtain a weapon to inflict a massive amount of damage on another person or institution. Many people argue that since guns are legalized to begin with, there is an easier chance of a gun falling into the wrong hands and being used for the wrong
Less gun, more beautiful life Now, gun ownership is being legalized in many countries, but crimes committed by the people who have guns are likely to imminently endanger the life or property safety of innocent citizens. There has been a mass shootings in the United States recently (Newman & Hartman 2017). As a result, it made the controversial topic “whether the government should control guns more strictly” have more debate value. Gun control is defined as a way that aim for “protecting the safety of citizens through limits on and regulation of firearms” (“GUN CONTROL:A.” 1984). There is an argument that the government may control the number of people can legally posses a gun and the time the people could posses a gun more strictly.
This power and freedom have caused other people to lose their freedom. With the prevalence of mass shootings in our free country, we need to enact tough, strict laws on guns to prevent any of this from happening again. The occurrence of these mass shootings relates on how fast it takes to possess a firearm. Stricter laws may increase the amount of time it takes to buy a gun. Although, 2nd Amendment activists believe that gun control is unconstitutional, thus delaying Congress to enact any laws.
14 People had been killed and 17 had been wounded. Wouldn 't you agree that this is Blasphemy? We have a country cannot go one month without having a major televised mass shooting and rebuke. I know many are are saying that guns help us keep our freedom, guns help us keep a non-corrupt government. Many of you are right and I agree with you that guns do help us in ways but what I am saying is that we should have tighter restrictions on accessing guns.
Most gun owners have guns as protection for themselves and for their families. One of the most prominent arguments for to pro gun ownership side is that guns are protection from a seemingly increasingly violent world. Also “...having guns gives [people] and least a fighting chance in the event of a burglar or home invader manages to get in.”(safewise.com). The second amendment gives people the right to own and use guns and is “...an undeniable personal freedom guaranteed by the constitution.”(openreader.org). People also “...support the rights of hunters, sport shooters, and recreational gunmen.” (openreader.org).Criminals are already breaking the law, so adding more won 't deter them.
