If guns didn’t exist the planet will be a better place than it is right know. There’s been many mass murders caused by people for selfish reason or because of mental illness. America should have better gun control. Over the years, many of the kills known to history are done by guns.
The number of incidents of gun violence last year in the United States was about 60,000. In recent years, the number of mass shooting has risen to about one mass shooting per day in the United States. The country is divided with some wanting to reevaluate our gun control laws and either ban or add additional regulations to the purchase of guns. Others say it is our right for Americans to own guns and something the founding fathers considered important to put in the Bill of Rights. The number of firearm sales has risen with the number of mass shooting many Americans question if banning guns or certain guns could help decrease the number of gun violence deaths.
Gun control is a law in which determines how firearms are used, sold and who have the right to use them. There are statistics that show how most of the population of a country is in favor of owning a firearm for self-defense. In my opinion, gun control should be enforced because it will make us safer and would reduce crimes. If people use guns as self-defense then they would increase the homicide rate.
One reason why guns should be regulated is because criminals or anyone can get a gun and cause destruction. For Instance,the sandy hook shooting caused by Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza an autistic boy carried a massacre on the Connecticut School Sandy Hook. This shooting killed around 26 boys and girls including adults of the school according to the dailynews.com. Another Example is
Of all gun deaths, suicide is responsible for more than three quarters of them. Far more people kill themselves with a firearm each year than are murdered with one. Furthermore, suicide rates are higher among children, women and men of all ages in states where more households have guns. One of the most effective and straightforward steps families can take to reduce the risk of suicide would be to remove all firearms from the household. Even a modestly successful program aimed at reducing suicide could see far more lives saved than virtually any other such plan the government could come up with.
A stronger focus on gun control in the United States involving restriction or even an outright ban of guns could serve to help the problem greatly. In 2015, 13,286 people were killed by firearms in the United States, with 26,819 suffering from non-lethal injuries (qtd. in “Guns in the US”). Taking away guns, the means that many urban criminals have to commit their crimes, would be very beneficial to cities. Recent studies found that the most effective way of reducing gun crime is to lower the amount of guns available in circulation.
Martin Luther King Jr and Senator Robert F. Kennedy which led to the creation of the Gun Control Act in 1968. Furthermore, there have recently been some mass shooting incidents that have brought about huge debates on the issue of gun control. These debates emphasize the need to strengthen the gun control laws that are currently in place, which are meant to regulate the buying, selling, and owning of gun. Lastly, even though gun control goes against the right given to individuals by the second amendment, having stricter gun control laws is beneficial for the safety of the nation because gun control can significantly decrease the number of deaths that occur because of mass shootings and gun control can also prevent students from shooting up schools. The enforcement of stricter gun control laws would be extremely beneficial for the safety of the people in the United States.
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. In addition, the regulations will make it difficult for people to access guns unless they have a concrete reason as to why they need the weapon.
One of the main impacts this has on our society is this determines how people will be sentenced, this means that you can be sentenced for more time if you have a gun when committing a crime of buy simply having a gun in general. Second this changes in our world today is this will change the way we look at self defence, since guns will be more restricted, people who are concerned with their and others personal safety will have to take self defense classes. Lastlly and most importantly, this affects the amount of deaths per year on our future This is why I believe that gun control should be reformed and bettered in some aspects, because without guns we don't have safety. Just because we don't have guns doesn't mean that criminals won't have them. We need to start talking about this more and start working things out because this is something that is going to affect the us in major ways.
Argument Outline There are thousands of homicides per year and fewer gun restrictions in Missouri. Guns laws should be stricter. If they were, there would be less gang gun violence, less mass shootings, n less terrorism. If killers cannot access a gun.
According to "Reducing Gun Deaths In The USA" (2000:1367), “But the evidence also suggests that, at least in terms of firearm deaths and injuries, efforts to reduce the availability of handguns have had a major effect.” However, to this day it is still easy to obtain a FOID card and a concealed carry permit. With that being said, if more federal gun-control laws went into effect, the outcome may positively influence the amount of gun violence we see today in
We live in a world that has become completely evolved around technology. Therefore, it is no surprise that police body cameras have become a common recommendation in order to reduce police misconduct. Like everything, the use of police body cameras has its pros and cons. Police body cameras can assure accurate statements made by both civilians and police officers themselves. Instead of listening to “he said, she said” these cameras will allow truthful statements and conversations to divulge what really occurred.
Do Gun Control Laws Lessen Gun Crime? Frederic Lemieux, F. "Effect of Gun Culture and Firearm Laws on Gun Violence and Mass Shootings in the United States." International Journal of Criminal Justice Sciences 9.1 (2014): 74-93. The main purpose of the article is to investigate the value of two statements at the foundation of the common controversy on gun control law in the result of shootings in the United states: (1) firearm violence and extensive shootings are a cultural possibility; (2) gun crime and violence and extensive shootings are more popular due to lenient rules and laws.
