I believe that the Gun Control Laws should be stricter here around the United States because almost everyday something bad is happening by the use of a gun. Whether its accidental or on purpose something has to be done to make sure guns are being used the way they are suppose to be used. Opening I would like to say that there should be stricter rules when dealing with guns. I’m tired of having to turn on the television and seeing a innocent life taken away by a gun purchased by a teen. For example, the school shootings have been very hard to watch and look at.
When guns are allowed in campus, it adds fear to the life of students and professor. When there is a constant fear, the whole learning environment will change. Allowing guns on campus will “stifle classroom debate- an essential component of learning” (Auyero). In making this statement, Auyero argues that allowing gun on campus take way key component of learning necessary for the students. The freedom of speech and freedom to share one’s opinion is one of the fundamentals rights of a human.
As the lives of seventeen students were taken away this valentine's day, in the most recent school shooting at Douglas High School, great controversy has erupted on the topic of gun control in America. Teens and parents across the world, have come together to protest the broken system that has greatly devastated so many families. As the discussion of gun control spreads, many turn to the NRA and political leaders to blame, but are these the people at fault? In the article, America's Unique Gun Violence Problem Explained in 17 Maps and Charts, German lopez writes, “ America has 4.4 percent of the world’s population, but almost half of the civilian-owned guns around the world.” These statistics explain americas lead in gun ownership well supported by both the NRA and the U.S second amendment. As the shootings increase so do the issues.
According to James Steinberg, a major portion of the problem is coming from the fact that gun control is a major issue in the United States. You would think that a weapon as deadly as an AR-15 would not be so easily obtainable by average US Americans but here we are, letting people with a history of domestic violence get ahold of them. When the weapons get into the hands of destructive monsters such as Nikolas Cruz and Adam Lanza, they hold responsibility for the actions that they choose to commit, even if it puts the people around them that risk. The correlation
Moorehouse analyzes the societal encounters ordinary civilians have with guns on a daily basis and how one’s action can cost the lives of many. On one hand, gun control does reduce crime to an extent because it reduces the possibility for people to obtain weapons or guns. On the other hand, crime increases gun control because due to the terrible use of guns to inflict crime government systems are forcing stricter gun laws on
Students should not know which teacher carries guns because an unstable person could take their gun. Also, not knowing could stop the person before they take action that can harm others because they are afraid they 'll get shot. Arming teachers would mean we are no longer waiting for the first responders and can help take actions before something bad happens. (Merica & Klein,
Death is unexpected but sometimes preventable; would you ever send your loved one to a place where their safety could be compromised? Schooling takes up approximately seventeen years of your life and is a government enforced activity for minors to attend a form of schooling for a certain length of time before permissible for dropping out. Unfortunately, more than five hundred school shootings have been recorded dating back to 1764. When is the right time to take action and stop mass killings in schools? The first step could be placing metal detectors on the outside of school doors to not only physically, but also psychologically help students and faculty by putting an end to school killings.
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.
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.
Metal detectors can protect schools from violence, especially from school shootings. To end the violence, metal detectors should be placed in every public school across America to ensure the safety of the school 's students and staff. Public schools in America have been challenged a lot in the past few years. They have been constantly questioned due to recent school shootings. The most recent tragedy occurred where “seventeen people [were] killed by a gunman [on February 14, 2018] at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida” (Levenson and Sterling).
Future Legislation Our nation has suffered too much at the hands of dangerous people who use guns to commit horrific acts of violence. As President Obama said following the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, “We won’t be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. “Most gun owners are responsible and law-abiding, and they use their guns safely. But to better protect our children and our communities from tragic mass shootings like those in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Tucson, there are common-sense steps we can take right now. While no law or set of laws will end gun violence, it is clear that the American people want action,
