Therefore, they are always ready to scoff at anyone trying to control gun ownership. This makes us wonder why people can be so defensive over something like a gun that is so dangerous and has lead to a lot of deaths in the American society. Gun control is essential in our society today because it will help prevent unnecessary shootings and crime rate Gun control will play a major part in the decrease of the crime and murder rate. Therefore, in my point of view, guns should be totally controlled and regulated by the government. If gun ownership is controlled by the government, only a limited number of people will be allowed to own guns.
The biggest issue of banning guns is not only this trivial aspect which I just mentioned, is the entire smuggling network there would be evolving guns. The police also state that robbers would create a huge black market selling people, drugs, and many other objects to eventually buy guns. After all this chaos is established, the government wouldn’t be able to do anything to avoid guns, as they will be all illegal, crime rate percentages would leap, and America's developed nation would slowly lose its
“A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that "legal purchase of a handgun appears to be associated with a long-lasting increased risk of violent death"(-https://gun-control.procon.org/). There is such a thing as an unlicensed dealer selling handguns without a background check and proper documentation and it is legal. Those gun buyers are mainly causing chaos with mass shootings and yet others think the Second Amendment defends the right to own a weapon for “self-defense”. It is time for tougher gun control laws; the safety of the citizens depends on a safe environment free of guns from those using them for villainous purposes such as mass shootings or homicides. The age restrictions on guns is preposterous; any teenager
2. I don 't think that teachers should be armed either. I feel like someone that has a gun should go through an extensive training (that doesn 't just last a couple of days or a background check) and should prove they are capable of handing a gun only when necessary. I lived in one of the most dangerous countries in the world, and I saw how license guns only increased the violence. People used guns to protect their loved ones yet that one person who was harmed also had people that cared about them who wanted revenge.
Introduction: Hello, my fellow students, the gun control debate has gotten “out of control” in terms of recent mass shootings. I am here to speak about the problem of mass shootings in the United States, which has, in recent times, been a growing cause of concern for the safety of the general public. I am concerned; a very concerned citizen that wants to examine the various reasons why gun control needs to be increased in order to stop these national tragedies. My argument consists of three major points: (1) The mental health issues of mass shooters, (2) the increased availability of unregistered fire arms at gun shows, and (3) the increased pattern of military grade automatic and semi-automatic rifles being used to multiple victims. In essence,
5) This means that American’s don 't have something to defend themselves against dangerous things. This would result in immense fear in the U.S. “After the ban was enacted, the homicides trended up until they reached a peak of 18.0 in 2003.” (King, par. 4) This means that the ban didn’t do anything to help the citizens. It is simply doing the opposite. This would result in chaos and, worse, people getting guns
Drugs are illegal, but people still find ways to have them. Many of us own guns because they make us feel safer. We know we can protect ourselves. If they take guns away, how will we protect our families? There would be nothing worse for a man than to have to sit and watch as someone hurt his family, because he had no means of defense.
People tend to get tangled in opinions and quotes on rather semi-automatic weapons should be banned or not, such as if they are protected by the second amendment, halting lawmakers from banning them. However, let there be no mistake that these weapons are a life threat to civilians. The amount of semi-automatic guns in the U.S. puts a shockingly large price on the cost the government would pay to buy all the semi-automatic rifles back. A fairly large amount of guns exist in the United States and of that amount, about a third are assault weapons. “A November 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that, as of 2009, there were approximately 310 million firearms in the United States: ‘114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 million shotguns.’” (Peters).
I can prevent gun violence by helping others realize we must change our culture and our policies to stop this cycle of violence. Many people die from gun violence each day, from school children to victims of domestic violence to people going about their daily lives. This situation is unacceptable, we need to take action and do everything in our power to keep tragedies like this from happening. In my opinion, suicide, the war on drugs, racism and police brutality are the biggest contributors to gun violence in our country. They must be tackled if the problem of gun violence is to be resolved.
But if the Government regulates guns it will violate our rights. For Instance the 2nd Amendment allows us to bear arms. Another reason why not to regulate guns is that guns don’t always cause death. Why regulate guns when a vehicle caused about 34,000 death a year according to Wikipedia which is more that is gun deaths. Also guns don’t kill people, people kill people and gun is a tool which you need
