Less gun, more beautiful life Now, gun ownership is being legalized in many countries, but crimes committed by the people who have guns are likely to imminently endanger the life or property safety of innocent citizens. There has been a mass shootings in the United States recently (Newman & Hartman 2017). As a result, it made the controversial topic “whether the government should control guns more strictly” have more debate value. Gun control is defined as a way that aim for “protecting the safety of citizens through limits on and regulation of firearms” (“GUN CONTROL:A.” 1984). There is an argument that the government may control the number of people can legally posses a gun and the time the people could posses a gun more strictly.
Recent events leading to the deaths of many American citizens are likely enough for people to strive for the addition of stricter gun control, although such action may really be meaningless and infringe upon the core rights established by the country’s founders themselves. American citizens are currently armed with privately-owned guns to protect their freedom. If used properly, private gun ownership is beneficial to those who want to feel safer personally owning firearms. This stance portrays the fact that some values of gun control may help such as more extensive background checks, but ultimately it is a futile attempt that will lead to a minimal affect on modern society. In theory, the abolishment of guns would not have an effect on the levels of gun-related violence as gun control laws do not deter crime; the improper use of guns and firearms falling into the hands of the mentally-ill and unstable deters crime.
Why Americans Need Guns The right to bear arms helps protect ourselves and our families. It is our constitutional right to bear arms and I believe it should not be taken away. Some people think if we did not have guns there would be less crime in the United States, but that is not true. When a person purchases a gun at a store they have to register that gun in their name, unless they buy a used one from someone else. If guns are banned the government will take innocent civilian guns away, because they have them registered in their names.
Everyone deserves the right to own their own guns, and should have the right to carry them wherever they go. If we were to do that then maybe all the shootings would no 't have happened, and more people would be protected rather than injured. All general topics have people for or against it, so is gun control as important as everybody thinks it is or is it overrated? The United States Constituion says this in Amendment 2:- “ 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.” The Second Amendment should in no way be changed or banned. Changing the aAmendment would just cause more confusion and frustration for the people changing it, and for the people .
The way an officer approach person need to be changed because most suspects are killed instantly due to suspicion of them having a gun or an officer feeling threatened. Officers have killed men, children, women innocent victims everyone is not a suspect. If there is harsher punishment enforced upon officers they will make officers more rational before making a decision and not so quickly and pulling out a gun. Average citizens usually considered the law before commits a crime know the risk fact may lead to jail. Police should consider the same fact that they could go to jail too, police are not above the law.
Some do not feel comfortable with the government's leniency on handgun ownership. An example of this is Agusto, an Irvington resident, who feels he needs a gun for self defense. According to a publication on gun control, Agusto is recorded as stating, “Either I'm going to kill them or they're going to kill me,...I didn't like doing that. I didn't have any choice.” People feel as though it is necessary to have a gun because hey feel as though they are in danger. Like this man they feel that they need to protect themselves before others decide to kill.
There are many suicides each year from people who carry or know someone who does or has a family member who carries. The ironic thing is that if people didn’t have the right to carry concealed handguns, most crimes, deaths and injuries would not happen because it would just be harder to get ahold of guns. Concealed handguns can easily cause the risk of unnecessary shootings. Disagreements will happen and instead of a possible fist fight a person 's anger can escalate and a gun could be pulled out and that disagreement or fight turns into a deadly shooting accident. Our society today is so lazy that there may be many that would not go through the trouble just to get a gun.
The enforcement of stricter gun control laws would be extremely beneficial for the safety of the people in the United States. Stricter gun control laws would ensure guns do not fall in the hands of people who would misuse them. For example, individuals who are 21-years-old and below should not be given the right to own or be around guns. For if they are not allowed to legally drink alcohol, how can they be trusted with a weapon that can easily take a life within seconds.
Conservative gun-rights advocates should acknowledge that if more states had a stringent universal background check, or if a federal law put these in place, more guns would be kept out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable (Goldberg). Even though Americans who are qualified to possess firearms shouldn't be denied the right to participate in their own defense. Guns can be used to do evil, but guns can also be used to do good (Goldberg). It’s important that people know this concept and how guns should be
The date is February 16th, 2018. The world has only reached its 46th day of the year and yet we have already bore witness to over 30 mass shootings in the United States. While politicians and our own President refuse to accept the real problem with the situation, citizens across the USA are fighting to rid the undeserving of their deadly assault weapons. In a New York Times article titled "Mass Shootings Don 't Have To Be Inevitable", James Steinberg addresses questions we are left to ask when the tragedy strikes and we are desperate for answers. Why is destructive ammunition so easy to obtain?
Different parts of the country have separate views regarding gun control laws. Such as, Americans from the south may say current gun control laws are fine, and Americans in the north may say they need to be stricter. Some would even say guns need to be banned all together. If an individual’s ultimate goal is to commit bodily harm to someone, they are going to do it whether they have a gun or not. However, normal procedures for purchasing a gun such as waiting periods, gun registrations, and background checks are sufficient for keeping guns from those who mean to do harm.
