Other weapons were used to kill 193 people in California, 136 people in Texas, and 99 people in New York (FBI: UCR, 2016). Guns are dangerous, but so is every weapon. Even if we outlawed every weapon in the United States, there would still be Murder. There was 89 murders in California, 82 murders in Texas, and 32 murders in New York, caused by a person using only their bare hands (FBI: UCR, 2016). We are willing to discuss banning guns for “killing people”.
After the shooting the couple fled in a rented SUV. Four hours later police pursued their vehicle and killed them in a shootout.I saw this on the news this was very sad.

The hitman pulled out automatic tommy guns from under their coats and pumped lead into each of the seven North Side gang members. According to the police report about 200 bullets were scattered on the floor of the warehouse, making this event one of the bloodiest act of gang violence in the 20s. Out of the seven gang members killed, two of them were Moran’s best assassins Frank and Peter Gusenberg. There was only one survivor, Bug Moran. When Moran arrived at the warehouse he saw the four hitmen disguised as police officers enter the building.
Gun Control Lately people have been using guns in a negative way and causing a bad effect on the world. People have been using guns inapropriatly and have been performing mass killings. If guns are being used by people then the people using them should know how to use them correctly, or not being a crazy lunatic. When I was 12 I was playing with a pistol and accidentally shot it, I wasn’t hurt and no one else was hurt but somebody could have been injured badly. Gun laws are the cause to a lot of the violent crimes in the united states and laws need to be changed so people can’t purchase guns as easily that way we aren’t in as much trouble.
Fatal Police Shootings “27 percent of African Americans are killed by the law enforcement” (Cooke 1) most of these are from fatal police shootings. Fatal police shootings have become an epidemic. The majorities of fatal police shootings are justified as homicides or have not been fully investigated. Plenty of cases have been closed due to false accusations. The turning point occurred when Martin Luther King Jr., Rodney King and many more were brutality beaten and or killed by police officers.
Today I want to tell you of the injustice of police brutality, the people it affects, and how just asking the right questions could make sure that police are punished for their crimes. BODY PARAGRAPH 1 Police brutality is a big problem in the United States. Police brutality is a misconduct when police use violence that is not necessary. This includes unjust shootings, which is when whoever was shot did not deserve to be shot because they either did nothing wrong or was complying with orders but was still shot. This is a big problem in the U.S. because it happens all around the states.
“In Las Vegas shooting bullets rained down on helpless crowd 22,000 people” (pg.6). “In 2015 there were more than 36,000 gun related deaths” (pg.8). “In Australia, for example, had 13 mass shooting from 1979 to 1996 “(pg.8). “Wisconsin has eliminated its 48-hour waiting period to buy handguns” (pg.9). “Most of the gun violence that happens in this country is
Additionally, on average there are nearly 13,000 gun homicides a year in the United States.” David Frum, Daily Beast and CNN contributor, stated, “About 200 Americans go to emergency rooms every day with gunshot wounds." This 2018 there was a mass shooting in a school at Parkland, Florida. 17 students and staff died at Stoneman Douglas High School. It was just supposed to be a normal Valentines day, but it turned out being the day that 17 lives were taken. Students all over America have protested, showing bravery
In spite of the fact that the second amendment gives the right to bear, firearms should be controlled and checked by the government since weapons have contributed to a lot of killings in America and will increase crime rates. Studies show that criminals constantly
Body I. First constructive argument: Banning the private ownership of guns will reduce the number of deaths due to gun violence. A. Kleck (2009) argues that the private ownership of guns enables the occurrence of deadly mass shootings at school or in the workplace. 1. The distribution of privately owned firearms provides easy access to firearms and makes deadly mass shootings possible.
In that case, the officers would have been able to enter his home and arrest him. (http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/disturbing-the-peace.html) But in that scenario, they still could have been shot and killed. But if they acted quickly enough, maybe they could have tazed him to where he could not retaliate. Honestly, there is nothing that could have really been done differently in that moment. As no one can tell the
Although one has to show proper licensing to buy an automatic rifle, it does not take away the fact that these automatic weapons are available to people, who plan on using them against the citizens of the U.S. My intent in this letter is to inform you of the effects of these events. Citizens have to think twice before going into public places. Always in fear of a massacre, citizens are scared to exercise their most basic rights because of these events.
During this prohibition, places became dangerous because gangs were at war as a result of trying to remain in control of alcohol smuggling operations. Thus, in an attempt to fix one problem, the US government created a new one. Thereafter, the government had no other choice but to repeal the law enacting the alcohol prohibition. Additionally, this rise in black market sales would occur because imposing a ban would not address the issue. Instead, the government needs to address the people, the root cause, because people kill people, not guns; guns are merely tools.
The confrontation ended with Zimmerman shooting the unarmed teenager in the chest”(Trayvon Martin Biography). His attacker George Zimmerman- a neighborhood watch member- reportedly shot and killed Martin merely yards from his home. Similar to Trayvon Martin, Mike brown was an unarmed teenager who was brutally killed by police. “The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun…”( Mike Brown NY Times Article). Hundreds of community members gathered to peacefully rally for a better investigation of his death, and in response police brought K-9 enforcements and weapons, if that isn 't a despicable representation of police force, I don 't know what
A halt could be put on a lot of this by just tightening up loopholes in the system of buying guns and making stricter background checks when buying guns and clips to go in people’s guns; especially large round magazines or clips. Making stricter background checks will make mass shootings a lot less likely. If the criminal gets someone else to buy the gun for them, the person buying it might not do it for the criminal because he knows he is more likely to get caught now with the stricter background checks. As of now, under Federal Law, you only have to do background checks on people that buy a firearm if they buy it through a dealer. You can buy a gun offline or at a gun show or a private individual without having to get anything.
