The Power of a Gun In the United States of America, the First Amendment right is one of the most important, allowing us to our freedom of speech. The Second Amendment is the second most important, allowing the citizens to have the right to bare arms to defend themselves, their family, and their country against any threat. This amendment gives us the right to have power for ourselves for protection, hunting, and sport. Due to the recent gun violence in America, some people view guns as a horrid object and want to revise the second amendment.
ProCon facts have found that “57% people believe that gun control laws give too much power to the government and may result in government tyranny and the government taking away all guns from citizens”. They are those who believe that they have to protect themselves because no one else will do it. Many of whom lack the knowledge of the government and how much power they possess. They are unaware of the three branches of government that secures the rights of citizens. No one can ever gain complete control without the people having a say.
In the United States of America certain regulations are definitely necessary for public safety. The regulations are there to better the nation and not further control it. The government can not get rid of everyone 's right to own and keep a gun but, they can simply control the amount of guns able to be purchased. Therefore, the government is not taking away peoples guns but, simply regulating those who can or cant not own them to better protect the citizens of America. And thus any remarks about the government taking away peoples guns are untrue, the government is doing this for everyone 's well
According to the National Rifle Association, "2.5 million guns are used for the sole purpose of self-defense"(procon.org). So, if gun control is enforced, it will make it more difficult for people to protect themselves. Like stated, it will leave law abiding citizens defenseless, and unable to protect their families when a criminal attacks. This is problematic, people should have the right to defend themselves. Also, when Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association said," That the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun ' ' (Smith).
Consistently, guns have been misused by the citizens there should be law where everyone can keep the rights to firearm but still safe for others. Political and federal needs to come together and agree to set laws and rules on gun control. In today 's news, we have watched mass events occur and don 't have full information, but sadly it was used by guns. In other words, many issues involve guns, such as racisms, safety, mental illness, and not enough knowledge on gun rights. However, gun control is only a concern when some mass shootings happens such as: school shootings, airports, clubs, hotels, churches, malls, etc.
And this is causing a big problem because people are misusing them. Therefore, I believe the guns should be banned in the U.S. It is no exaggeration to say that guns are the key element to cause the instability in the society of U.S. 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.
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Whether or whether not the United States should implement stricter gun laws has been a controversial issue for a long time. “Gun control" is the popular name for laws that aspire to restrict or regulate guns by choosing who the government deems most suitable to sell, buy, and possess certain firearms in order to reduce the crime rate. Supporters of gun control most oftenly call for laws that restrict law-abiding people, the only people who will obey them. Many pro gun control advocates believe that gun control does not go against the Constitution,
Gun Control Have you ever wondered why gun control is around and why people oppose or agree with it? Well gun control is the attempt to make laws on purchasing, selling, trading, and producing firearms. The Second Amendment is one of the reasons why people oppose or agree with gun control. The U.S. government had made many laws for gun control over the years (Benson). The third reason why people either oppose or side with gun control are the pros and cons in the past, such as how many deaths because of guns and how many deaths for not the use of guns to protect yourself.
In order for us to achieve the goal of making America the future it wants to be, we need to reform gun laws and assure that firearms are in safe and legal hands. We need to unite to stop the illegal immigration flowing into this country and slowly bring an end to climate change and global warming. Gun laws in this country are way too lenient and it needs to be stopped. 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.
Therefore there would be less chance of another shooting to occur. The people that don’t agree believe that they shouldn 't lose their right of owning a gun because of one person’s actions and accidents that they couldn’t have prevented. “The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.” America should have stricter gun control . Gun shop owners should be aware of who they are selling a gun to, and what weapons they are able to purchase.
America is one of the most unique and prominent countries in the world, primarily because of it powerful and efficient legal system. With that being said, it is that efficient legal system that provides Americans with the freedoms that they have known and grown accustom to. However, if one of those freedoms were to be stripped from the American people, one would assume that America as we know it, would be drastically changed forever. Yet, if American’s had to give up one of their constitutional rights, it would be safe to assume the right to bear arms would probably result in the least amount of change in American society while simultaneously providing a new level of protection to the American people.
In the world we live in today guns are surrounded throughout society placing harm on people and their lives. Though guns are expected to be limited by the government they are obtainable almost to all people of all ages in which should not be acceptable. In Molly Ivins essay “Get a Knife, Get a Dog, but Get rid of Guns” the author speaks upon the misuse of guns and it's over accessibility to regular people. Therefore I claim that well trained and disciplined individuals who work for the government should only be entitled to firearms in order to destroy the irresponsible use of guns. Ivins essay argues that allowing uncontrollable citizens to have guns is ruining the security of our free state.
America Needs Gun Control Once said by former American politician Eliot Spencer, “Yes, people pull the trigger, but guns are the instrument of death. Gun control is necessary , and delay means more death and horror.” His remarks mean that gun control will reduce tragedies. While gun control will affect law-abiding citizens also, gun control will limit people from getting guns and will lessen mass shootings.
