Mass shootings are a huge problem in the United States, but for some reason, political figures or government officials tend to handle these situations as if it’s just a regular crime. There have been 97 mass shootings since 1982, which in total have had 806 fatalities due to these mass shootings. Instead of treating, a mass shooting like it is a casual thing and coming up with all types of different excuses to control how people should feel and see the situation they should be working to make stronger and better gun control laws in order to regulate who can get a hold of these weapons. In the article, “Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms,” written by Jonathan M. Metzl and Kenneth T. MacLeish explain the assumptions
It’s tragic to say that gun violence, such as mass shootings happen so often in today’s society. Compared to countries around the world, the United States has the highest mass shooting rate. In our country we tend to blame our mass shootings and homicides on guns, but without a human behind it guns are harmless. Instead of banning these firearms all together, which may only cause an uprising in illegally owning guns, why don’t we strengthen our gun control laws? By banning people the right to carry and own a gun, we are restricting them of their basic rights.
Semi-automatic rifles are a threat to the lives of children and adults, regardless. The United States possesses most of the world’s guns and has the highest gun ownership rate internationally; many of those firearms will find themselves into malicious hands and the people of the U.S. need to seize them before more people die. The recent debate over banning semi-automatic rifles has risen to the nation’s attention; rates of mass shootings are rising and recent shooters have been using assault weapons to increase the rate of how many people they can kill in a given time. It is time that semi-automatic rifles are to be swept off store shelves. 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.
After all the arguing, the ratification process was in full force. The responsive argument, according to Vandercoy, widely made was that Congress might be able to confine the existing militia force, all armed citizens, to a select militia made up of a small segment of the population. The delegates were trying to eliminate the possibility that game laws, used effectively in England at different points to disarm the population, would not produce a similar result in America. He summarizes the state ratification process; three states ratified while expressing their understanding that the people had a right to bear arms, and two states refused to ratify until individual rights were recognized as amendments. English history made two things clear to the American
Debates on gun control are often frayed with heavy emotions and personal opinions. Not for lack of good reasoning, especially when statistics show that 40 percent of Americans know someone who was either fatally shot or committed suicide with a firearm (The Trace, 2017). However, before you form an opinion on statistics alone, try using simple logic and common sense. Imagine you’re out walking through the shopping mall or even perhaps the local neighborhood Walmart and you see an overly obese person. Someone so overweight that you must move out of their path because you both can’t fit side by side walking down the aisle at the same time.
Complete gun control for rifles is irrational, unconstitutional and hard to implement. The restriction of rifles in the united states is irrational due to crime statistics from the FBI. The FBI homicide statistics state that in 2016 there were 11,004 firearm homicide but only 374 of those were performed with rifles vs the 7,105 performed handguns. These statistics show that the handguns were used in 64% of homicides vs rifles being used in 3% yet rifles get more negative news coverage. The fact of complete gun control for rifles is unconstitutional because the 2nd amendment is intended for the american people to be able to defend themselves from a tyrannical government.
dollars. Twenty percent of that goes to the Middle East, which should be an exceptionally great deal for them, but . In 2014, it was reported that all 3.1 billion U.S. dollars that were donated to Israel all went into military spending. The funding was used not to help build a better tomorrow, but to help the Israliens beat the unfunded palestinians. Is this why many people fear white man's burden?
The United States has more than 3 million population, accounting for about 6 percent of the world’s population. But the U.S. shooting rampage accounts for nearly 31 percent. Although many people try to carry out some policies about gun control, such as Obama and Clinton, but neither of them is successful. Many people may think why gun control is such a controversial issue in America. I think there is a wide array of obstacles and the NRA (National Rifle Association of America) plays a vital role in these obstacles.
He was very excited and eager about it. However, Marlin -paranoid over the events that happened years ago- became overprotective and was hesitant and nervous about letting his son go to school. After Marlin sends off Nemo off to class with his teacher Mr. Ray the stingray, one of the dads of the kids going to school with Nemo, Bill, a longnose butterfly, slipped out that the Mr. Ray was bringing his class to the drop off. Marlin instantly panicked and rushed to get Nemo. Meanwhile, Nemo followed Sheldon, Tad and Pearl to skip class to the edge of the drop off where they saw a boat.
In search of compensation for their aid and losses, the humans of Lake Town and elves march to the Lonely Mountain for a share in the treasure but are denied by Thorin and they end up besieging the Front Gate. Bilbo attempts to make peace by joining the humans but fails. At this moment, an army of goblins and Wargs storm the mountain, and this forces the humans, elves and dwarves to join together to defeat a common enemy. They almost lose, but the arrival of Beorn and the eagles secures the win. After the battle, all peace between the different parties is restored and Bilbo and Gandalf return to Bag End, where Bilbo continues to live today.
Although their beliefs are completely illegitimate and borne out of anti-Semitic racism, they are a disruptive and growing force within The United States. In 2010, two police officers were shot and killed by "sovereign citizens" in Arkansas during a routine traffic stop. In most cases, sovereign citizens tend to be more than a nuisance than a deadly threat. They claim that the United States law does not apply to them, and refuse to pay traffic tickets and taxes. However, a 2014 survey of law enforcement officers found that sovereign citizens were the number one threat in the U.S., more so than even Islamic extremists or neo-Nazis.
They say the more guns we have, the more gun violence there is, but in fact it does the complete opposite and solves gun violence. After the tragic and cold-hearted school killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Connecticut, 20 children and 6 adult staff members were fatally shot. The number of school shootings within the past few decades has risen dramatically, which is just not acceptable. How can anyone accept the thoughtless cruelty with these young precious lives being treated like they are replaceable?
Since the begining of America, the Founding Fathers wrote the strong-standing Bill of Rights with amendments to protect the country that had just recently won their freedom, but one amendment has been the top theme of controversies for centuries. Gun laws offend the Bill of Rights in so many ways and they prove ineffective. Gun Laws are relevant due to thousands of deaths and self-protection. The argument goes on but without guns there is militia, one of the main intents of the Second Amendment. These simple rules can reduce deaths, proven by millions of influential people.
Mark Malkowski, the CEO of Stag Arms, mentioned that he had gotten “about one hundred offers” about repositioning. It is not shocking to see that gun control laws don’t recognize the impact they have on businesses and people. These laws seem to care more about taking away the rights of Americans than protecting their jobs. Luckily, our federalist system
