Most likely they will have a weapon, and if you call the police, they will already had a chance to kill you and taken all of your possessions by time the cops come. The best solution would be to defend yourself with a gun, but if this gun control law passes, if you shoot the burglar, you will probably be framed rather than the actual criminal because you had a gun and the thief did not. I think that a good solution to this gun problem would be to educate people on guns. In lot of schools, there are no classes teaching about gun safety. Another solution would be to not make guns available for people with certain mental conditions.
Gun Rights in the United States The National Rifle Association is working day after day to make the world with guns in it a safer place. However, many People feel that day will never come. They are working on taking guns away from Americans altogether. Our hope is to find a solution so we can keep guns a part of our history, while, at the same time, protecting the people in the United States. Today in America, forty-six percent of the population would like to see stricter gun laws, while some would like to see handguns banned altogether, except for use by law enforcement.
The general argument made by Shiha Dalmia in her work, “The Case Against Banning Guns” is that guns should not be banned in the United States. Banning guns is not going to stop people from killing other people. There is no possible way to collect every single gun in the U.S. and even if there was, people have other ways and items to hurt others. When something gets banned, everyone seems like they want to do that thing more. Guns should only be used for appropriate activities like hunting, for example, but there is no one to stop people from harming others.
Recently there has been a lot of allocution about guns. Some people want to abolish guns, some people want to consolidate the processes of obtaining them, some people want to make it easier, some believe guns should be obscured, some believe they should be allowed to carry openly. It doesn’t matter what you believe the topic is a never-ending discussion. There is one topic that has the state of Texas going crazy. It’s about whether students should be allowed to carry guns on campus.
Several say that it is the solution to the big problem the United States has with school shootings. It may not stop the shooter but it could prevent a massacre. Others believe that teachers having guns is too much. They think that the children need more loving and caring adults in their lives, not more guns. People also believe that any kind of automatic or semi-automatic gun should be banned in the United States.
I believe that due to recent shootings, we as America should do something to put an end to these shootings. I know that the difference between gun advocates versus gun control activists is that gun advocates have guns and know how to use them properly. Donald Trump has stated that to put an end to the shootings is not only due from obtaining a gun, but mental health. I also believe that it isn’t necessary to own a gun unless you’re using. I am torn between both sides, because half of the people feel more safe when they have a gun on hand, and the others feel more safe knowing that no one is in possession of a weapon.
If there is just one person carrying in that classroom the whole situation could be changed for the better. Those who are against concealed carry say the answer to school violence is prevention, not guns on campus. In a perfect system, the two approaches to safety complement each other. Preventive measures, such as teaching students and faculty to watch for the warning signs of mental illness and providing counseling to disturbed students, can work hand in hand with preparative measures, such as developing campus alert systems, providing additional training to campus police, and allowing the same trained, licensed adults who legally carry concealed handguns when not on college campuses to do so on college
Are these background checks effective in preventing gun violence? Background checks should not only remain in place before the sale of a firearm but also become stricter. Every day in America renting an apartment, applying for a job, or even borrowing money usually involves running a quick background check. Should these backgrounds checks be stricter when putting a dangerous weapon in the hands of a human being? Mental illness does not appear on current background checks.
It preys on people’s fears that the government will turn into a dictatorship or completely ban guns…The Founders of our country wanted the people to be able to protect themselves from over powerful governments.” - Is it time to pass tough gun control laws? By McClathy Tribune. People might think their rights are being taken but in reality we are making the U.S a safer place for all our citizens. “They say that since Congress stopped banning assault rifles in 2004, violent crime in America has fallen significantly, and shootings are also down slightly.” There are positive consequences for having new gun control laws and the safety of the citizens increases with each new law. Those positive consequences are not enough to convince everyone that we need improved gun control
This shows that can people own a gun. In conclusion, this shows that gun control can lead to many harmful events. If we make gun control illegal, there would be no more murders, shootings, and death. Everyone can be safe and not be harmed. This could make the world a safer
Should the right to bears arms be more restricted? The governments primary role is to protect the right 's of law abiding citizens, so when did restricting those rights become so popular? The school and mass shooting 's that have plagued our country over the recent years have been the result of mentally disturbed criminals. The fundamental problem with gun bans or further restricting gun rights is that it only works on citizens that are already predisposed to obey the law in the first place. Criminals, which by definition have no regard for the law, will not be phased by the governments restrictions with such laws.
Name Professor Course Date College shootings The debate on gun regulations is bound to intensify with the recent shootings at a community college in Oregon. The main debate will centre on tightening gun control in the country. Measures to tighten gun control include gun buyback events, tighter gun laws, and stronger background checks. However, these measures are unlikely to be effective because of the large number of gun owners in America and the existing policies on gun ownership. Implementing gun control policies in a nation with a large number of gun ownership is difficult because these policies are bound to be opposed by some citizens.
Many activists for gun control are reaching out try to ban guns in America. During the National Rifle Association (NRA) Press Conference on December 21, 2012, Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre, speaks out against these activists and exclaims “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” After hearing about the tragedy, Lapierre wants every school in America to deploy a protection program to keep its students safe. The NRA faces criticism from all over America, about how they are to blame, but Lapierre puts the blame on video games and violent movies such as, “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.” He questions, “Isn’t fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?” Lapierre is willing to give training to both students and teachers on the proper precautions
The dissent also stated that, while statistically insignificant, concealed carry may not reduce the violent crime rates; however, they do not contribute to more of it. For the dissent, Peruta is not necessarily about just the right to conceal carry but instead the full context of the Second Amendment which states the people have the right to bear
