The documentary 30 Days: Gun Nation places a gun control activist from Massachusetts in Leesburg, Ohio to live with a gun enthusiast and his son. The gun control activist, Pia, came in with stereotypical preconceptions about the two. The primary focus of the documentary was Pia’s transition in feelings toward firearms. At times, this transition felt drastic to the point it seemed scripted. During her time, in Leesburg she was exposed to guns on a daily basis, took gun safety classes, and worked in a sporting goods store selling firearms.
Gun control is a law in which determines how firearms are used, sold and who have the right to use them. There are statistics that show how most of the population of a country is in favor of owning a firearm for self-defense. In my opinion, gun control should be enforced because it will make us safer and would reduce crimes. If people use guns as self-defense then they would increase the homicide rate.
Gun Rights in America The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights grants Americans the right to bear arms. Opinions of this vary, but I believe the safety of ourselves and posterity are above all. Criminals throughout the US take advantage of this privilege and use weapons for violence and evil purposes that should be unspeakable to our world, such as murder, robbery, and torture. Owning rifles or pistols ourselves is the only way to counter these treacheries.
Does Gun Control Work? Man has ruled over the earth for centuries. Using spears and swords to kill animals for food or to fight man on the battlefield. Then a new substance and tool was created to change the whole world. There have been reports of the mix of gunpowder creating explosions.
As Americans we are no longer safe. Instead of more gun control, we need to strongly look at concealed carry laws. This law has the potential to reduce crime, and prevent mass shootings. Most importantly, it is our constitutional right. First and most importantly, it is clear that concealed carry laws reduce crime.
Around 80 million americans own about 223 million guns. Therefore Assault Rifles should not be banned from american citizens. Banning assault rifles would interfere with the second amendment of the United States of America. Within the second amendment, it states citizens have the “Right to bear arms.” “It is a constitutional right to bear arms.”
In 1939, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others unable to defend themselves had their lives taken away.  Could this outcome have changed if the Jews were armed with guns? Could thirteen million innocent lives have been saved? Does taking away firearms help someone in a situation like this?
Gun control problems Nowadays, we can hear the crimes related to guns from time to time, and each of them is scarified and influential. For example, the accident happened in Sandy Hook Elementary School leads to 20 deaths for primacy school students and 6 deaths for staffs. It is hard to imagine what degree of sadness in their family may suffer. In this way, many people think the government should have stronger gun control regulations.
The Truth “It’s everywhere. Guns and violence are in every nook and cranny of America. Many children can get a gun quicker than they can get a book out of a library. That puts us all at risk”(Marian Wright Edelman). One should not argue to repeal the second amendment.
Did you know that 80% of people who commit mass shootings are using legally obtained guns? Gun control is a very controversial topic in America. The second amendment states that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Is this saying that each citizen has the right to own arms or that just the militia, or people in the army, have the right to bear arms? This highly debated topic goes two ways.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” (The Constitution of the Untied States, Amendment 2) Whether it’s protecting your family from intruders and criminals, starting a revolution against a tyrant government, or just having casual target practice with some friends, guns have always been the tool of choice since they were first invented. Today, nations across the world constantly debate and argue whether their citizens should be allowed to carry firearms. More specifically, the United States it seems like every day argues about if they should be kept with freedom, with restrictions, or banned completely. No matter what side people are
