Gun Control Gun control over the years has been a controversial subject, with people arguing for both sides. The 2nd amendment states that everyone in the U.S. has a right to bear arms. Mass shootings and suicides by firearm have been a growing concern for many people living in the U.S. Numerous people making the argument that there should be more gun control. Having gun control would help lessen the deaths by firearms in the country for a variety of reasons.
If college students were armed with firearms, this would dramatically decrease the crime rate and the likelihood of a mass shooting occurring on a college campus. The evidence remains undeniable; nevertheless, others just need a bit extra
According to the article, the author suggested that passing more laws is not the useful solution of decreasing criminal rate. That is true the existence of estimate 260 million guns in the country raised the shooting death rate. We might build some places gun-free, but we cannot destroy all the guns. The killer can still bring guns to the gun-free zones from other places. In addition, the author suggested we should focus on dealing with dangerous and unstable personalities.
The mass shooting tragedies in Florida schools created a ripple about the popular and controversial debate about gun control. America should have more gun control laws, as they can help save dozens, hundreds, maybe even thousands of victims. Advantages of these gun restrictions are the decrease of gun-related murders, more thorough background checks to prevent giving guns to criminals or people with mental illnesses and the prohibition of high-capacity magazines. Nonetheless, the other side of the coin is education about guns should have a higher priority rather than actual gun control, as they do not prevent illegal possession of guns or one 's lower feeling of security. There should be additional gun control in America.
Although arming teachers would allow for an immediate response against a terrorist, “Armed staff on-site could respond to a shooter before police”, according to Matthew Santoni, it would be ineffective because of the additional background checks teachers will have to go through to be assigned a gun, and will put the kids at risk of being shot. There are more solutions to this dilemma, and gun control is one of them. By securing the weapons and regulating them, people are less likely to kill someone with said weapon. Australia, for example, took the right steps into regulating gun violence by purchasing weapons from people after a deadly shooting. The United States can do the same thing and protect the lives of
There should be more security guards or policemen at schools because of the fact that someone can carry out a deadly assault. Maybe not using so much technology, but using more security guards that can patrol in and outside the school. With the use of security guards the chances of a shooting happening is slim, not only that, but with armed policemen it also helps stop people from thinking about doing something bad. Using technology doesn’t stop an active shooter because it can’t do anything but catch or alert that there is a shooter, even with students’ help they can throw things and give enough time to catch the shooter. But with security guards and police they are the ones that can stop a shooter.
This is where it is believed gun control would have a good effect in the long run, if its harder to get a gun then these guns will not make it in the hands of a school shooter. A gun becomes dangerous when it is in the hands of a dangerous unsafe person. It is proven that most U.S. deaths are caused by gun violence.
The presence of a gun makes an act of domestic violence much more likely to end in death. We need to ensure that college are a sanctuary untainted by gun violence. We believe gun do not make place safer people do. Students can be protected in campus in some other ways than being allow to carry gun. College should have more police officer to keep things safe.
In recent years there has been a big debate when it comes to the topic of gun safety. This issue isn’t just a problem in the Illinois or the U.S. but in many different places around the world. The main arguments revolve around the best way to reduce the high number of gun violence and accidental injuries caused by guns in the United States. The main issue I will discuss is not just gun safety, but more specifically a better solution to keeping kids more safe from guns. The big question people have the most opinions about is, should kids be taught gun safety at a young age, and will that help reduce the number of injuries and deaths in children due to playing with firearms.
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.
Since mass shootings in crime rates increase throughout the US, many Americans have long debated over federal regulations of firearms with one party again And again. Another supporting in gun-control should be enforced and many innocent citizens and children are being killed and families are losing their loved ones each and every day. These crimes are being committed due to the laws not being oversee king or enforcing the gun control laws so that these suspects of the mentally ill groups are no longer committing horrific crimes. It puts not only the victims lives in danger but the sick
Many are against concealed carry because it would lead to an arms race. As said by Kelly Sampson, on behalf of the Brady Campaign, allowing concealed carry would force the criminals to get higher damage guns, which would lead to an unnecessary amount of guns. If criminals got higher grade weapons, it would mean more violent crimes and more deaths. Obama once said “There is a gun for roughly every man, woman, and child in America. So how can you, with a straight face, make the argument that more guns will make us safer?” and many people on the pro-gun control side stand by this.
They conclude that “gun safety has proven to be effective against gun homicide” (NRA 2013). By educating the public, gun responsibility and safety will increase and lower gun crime without compromising gun ownership. Implementing mandatory gun safety courses for first time buyers and a safety test for current owners, Americans can buy guns and also be educated in the responsibility that comes with gun ownership. This measure could potentially save local governments money as well since law enforcement would not need to spend time prosecuting gun violators due to negligence. In addition, gun education would also reform the way people think of guns, from the stereotypical gun toting violent individual to the educated, informed gun owner.
The media makes it seem as if they praise things like this. Constantly seeing things on the level of mass school shootings can be dangerous. It can cause more shootings and bad situations. “I use to feel bad for the ones who were killed, but now Eric Harris and Seung Hui Cho became my idols” (“Aaron Ybarra” Herz). The shooter of the Seattle Pacific University shooting was inspired by other people that engaged in the same activity.
It has also made it more difficult to defend yourself against another person with a gun. The bottom line is we need to put guns in the hands of the right people and dropping Gun control laws is how we’re going to do that. The more guns on the street the better as it equals more people that can defend themselves as well as the lives of other citizens. Making guns more accessible to our citizens is one thing that maybe harder than it sounds.
