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”.
Nearly 96 Americans die each day from a gun related death, 62 percent of these deaths are suicides (everytownresearch.org/gun-violence-by-the-numbers/.) Almost 7 children and teens are injured by guns every day, but most instances are due to carelessness or unintentional. Here’s where race plays a part. All lives matter in this world but before I bring race and gender into the statistics I would like to state that these statistics are in no way a game, its horrible how much crime and homicide is committed in the United States. That being said, in big cities like Chicago or D.C., gun control plays a huge effect on consumers of firearms, but in 2015 Chicago reached its record high of homicide crimes in the country.
He had gotten shot in the right arm by an enemy sniper and couldn't use it. All he had left was his revolver. He tricked the snipe into getting above the parapet and fired, as he looked past the smoke he had seen that the enemy was hit and killed. The enemy fell to the ground and the sniper needed to leave before morning. But he had a curiosity of who the enemy sniper was.
Gun is not the only thing that represents the violence in the novel. As Cormac McCarthy has depicted characters masterfully in his novel, the signs representing of violence can be found on some of the characters of the road; with no needed explanation such as a Roadrat "He dove and grabbed the boy and rolled and came up holding him against his chest with the knife at his throat. The man had already dropped to the ground and he swung with him and leveled the pistol and fired from a two-handed position balanced on both knees at a distance of six feet. The man fell back instantly and lay with blood bubbling from the hole in his forehead." (McCarthy,2006, 34).
A gun, like almost every object, has the power to kill. Yet the gun is merely the instrument of death and destruction, only human beings are capable of pulling the trigger. Michael Moore is an inspirational documentarian that created Bowling for Columbine (2002) a contentious documentary that comments on the violence surrounding school shootings and gun laws that devastated America. Documentaries do not simply record the truth in a purely neutral, objectively disinterest manner” (Nowlan R 2010), but provide inspiration for social change by creating world-wide awareness of the gun laws in America and the way the American media creates fear in its people, however, his biased editing and use of film techniques did not reveal the ‘truth’, which is what you are expecting when you sit down to watch a documentary right? Through Moore’s exploration of America’s obsession with guns (would you believe a bank which gives you a free gun when you open up an account!)
Rarely is there discussion of the impact firearms have on our lives, health, and economy. Gun violence in America causes a heavy toll of death and disability and should be treated as a public health crisis instead of a political debate. The Scope of the Problem While mass shootings are sensational and receive most of the news headlines gun violence occurs daily and in a variety of ways. Firearm-related injury and death can be unintentional – a hunting accident or a curious toddler discovering an unsecured handgun, or intentional – assaults, homicides, or suicides. As illustrated in the chart below firearms cause far more injuries than fatalities.
Guns are used for self-defence, resistance, hunting, and law enforcement and also it has its other uses too. The right to bare arms is protected safely in the 2nd constitutional amendment. Therefore, banning or outlawing guns from being owned or purchased is immoral and unconstitutional. Gun control in the United States should be abolished and totally eliminated. It is correct that nearly hundred thousand individuals are injured, hurt or killed by firearms in the United States every year (Scalia n.d).
The citizens are possessing guns in U.S. and this is a huge risk for the government and the safety of society itself. According to [http://www.rulen.com/gunban/], 0.004% of the guns-possessions are used in the crime each year, and it is an enormous number. This included terrorist attacks, school shootings or just simple hatred murders. With guns, it seems that killing people becomes a lot easier to carry out. The recent Las Vegas Strip Shooting is the best example manifests this lack of gun control problem in U.S. On the night of October 1, 2017, the sound of the shooting appeared in a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.
Everyday in the United States, ninety families are changed forever; guns claim an average of ninety lives every day in the United States, 33,000 lives in a single year. Gun control has been a debate in the United States for many years and is constantly thrusted back into the public’s attention by horrific shootings. These shootings constantly cause individuals to petition the government to place stricter and stricter regulations of guns. However, these policies cannot be the solution to this problem. To determine a solution that will be both effective and constitutional, we must look at statistics and research that has been conducted to determine the best course of action.
Isn’t all the mass shooting and gun violence enough to show the government how much America needs more restrictive gun laws? Americans need to help make a change to keep more innocent people from dying. Too many lives are being taken because of violent shootings. According to everytownresearch.org, “On an average day 96 Americans are killed with guns. 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."
Just in In the United States itself has been said that a gun has been the top most violent weapon in violent crimes. Just into 2011, 128,900 of crimes were committed with firearms(Klimas). Also in the year of 2014,8,124 murders were used just by fire-arms(Quadl). Gun control is not only entirely reasonable but also certain to be effective. Some of the society needs to recognize in-state Manning fully that legally owning or selling guns only puts another life at risk.It will decrease the amount of mass crimes that are being committed in the United States.Studies have shown When the government outlawed something that huge, number of people very much want that outlawed item even more.
Gun control is an issue because shootings are too common now there has to more strict rules on guns. Guns are responsible for almost thirty thousand deaths a year in America a little bit more than half of those deaths are suicides. America has a big problem with guns there are about 280 million to 300 million guns in private hands of americans. Gun shops need to do more background checks and see their mental health that could stop and incident like the gunmen who took thirty two lives at Virginia Tech in 2007. There have been more shootings like this one in various schools around the country.
They teach the public about the prevalence of gun violence in the US that results in the tens of thousands of gun homicides, genocides and suicides, and gun connected deaths each year. This cost taxpayers billions of tax dollars each year. The NGVAC shows why gun violence is a complete result of current gun laws. They are against the NRA, they have a tab which shows a NRA puppet of the week. They also have a counterintuitive gun laws tab.
That claim is not true in fact,Jay Wachtel an agent of the ATF said, “ one of the most common ways criminals get guns is through straw purchase sales.” A straw purchase sale is when someone prohibited from buying a firearm uses another person to buy a firearm. Tu fuether support the fact that criminals will get guns even when gun laws are in place comes from bjs.gov where a statistic from 1997 shows that 39.2% of criminals get their guns from illegal sources.Another piece of evidence comes from nevadacarry.org where it has a statistic that 50% of all gun purchases come from straw purchases in
Guns kill hundreds of thousands of people every year. Obviously, this number is way too high, and to decrease this statistic, change needs to occur. Firm gun laws will lower the amount of gun related deaths in the United States and overall make a more safe and secure
