The gun was made to shoot only 250 rounds so that when reloading it can give time to the weapon to cool down. This gives more soldiers to use rather than being a man who cools down machine guns. This made a large improvement because now there were even more numbers being used to go on the offensive or the defensive position. The last difference in guns is the new type of gun called the sub machine guns. This gun was one of the most effective guns in both wars.
Until about 1900 they were used in small wars and against small threats such as the American Indians. To compete with other machine gun manufacturers, in 1893 Gatling developed an electricity-driven gun that fired 3,000 rounds per minute, later he built an automatic gas-operated gun, however, in 1911 the U.S. Army officially declared his weapon
World War I. America needed an advantage to beat Germany and their allies. So a true patriot created one of the first assault weapon and named it the Thompson submachine gun. The weapon would of made a big difference on the war ,but it was created when the war was over. So gangsters acquired the weapons and killed many lives. New assault weapons came and ended more lives.
In modern society, guns are seen as a form of control. Those who have guns are able to overpower those who do not. This trend was set when guns were first invented and has stayed the same throughout history. The one place where guns are not a symbol of power and control is in literature, specifically “The Old Gun” and Hamilton. In Mo Yan’s short story “The Old Gun”, the protagonist is a hungry boy who does not even know how to use the titular firearm. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical Hamilton ends with the titular character dying from wounds sustained in a pistol duel. Both of these works feature characters that turn to using firearms when they have no other options. Although one could argue that guns are a symbol of control because the characters
Each one consisted of 6 to 10 rotating gun barrels, turned by a hand crank. This new product got the attention of General Horatio Wright. When seeing it he said “I have examined…the invention known as the ‘Gatling gun’ and it seems to me to possess much merit.” . During the war, the machine gun itself was not approved up to 1866 but General Benjamin F. Butler purchased twelve guns at one thousand dollars. Two of these were used at Petersburg in 1864 to defend against the attacks from the
The Profession of Arms is similar to other professions in that it produces expert work, and it requires years of study and practice before individuals within our profession are capable of expert work. However, lethality is inherent in what we do in the Profession of Arms, and we enjoy a significant level of autonomy that others do not. Those uniquely crucial pieces are what distinguish the Profession of Arms from all others. The American People trust us to provide security which society cannot provide for itself, and doing so ethically is what maintains that trust and that of our elected civilian leaders.

Society as a whole has become less and less violent. Since 1991, reported crimes committed has dropped by almost double (Statista.com). Many people blame the AR-15 for most of the mass murders in America, and ask for the “assault” weapon to be banned. However, many details of the gun are skewed. In an article written by Margot Sanger-Katz of The New York Times, she stated that of all the gun deaths in America, 60% were suicides; and even more contrary to belief, nearly double of the mass killings (4 or more deaths) were with handguns instead of rifles (statista.com).
A weapon in the wrongs hands is the maximum danger humanity can face. Nowadays, violence and delinquency in society are viewed as the maximum problem solver. Humanity is full of chaos; hate and envy seize our souls. Guns are the ultimate security for some citizens but for others, these add to a feeling of defenselessness.

A semi-automatic assault rifle can be changed over into a completely automatic firearm with a just a little modifications. A shotgun can turn into a grisly effective weapon by sawing-off the tip of it. Clearly, new procedures for gun control are expected to deliver anticipated results. In the first half of 1991, fifty children less than seventeen years old had been shot to death.
“The UDF existed to protect a world obsessed with creating worthless piles of crap,” said Rita as she played with the small bullet toy. The bullet toy: 25 cents, 9mm, live ammo, painted to match a soldier. Rita couldn't believe it when she was handed a bullet that was based off of her. At first it was dumb to her, but little did she know how big of a role this would play in her life.
