Gun control endangers American’s constitutional right to bear arms. Politicians and civilians alike mistakenly think that revoking our constitutional right to keep and bear arms will ensure the end of gun violence in our country. Taking away our guns by criminalizing the purchase or ownership of guns will not keep weapons out of the hands of violent criminals. If we criminalize guns the violent gun-slinging criminals we worry about would continue to purchase them illegally through the black market. Marginalizing our right to bear arms endangers civilians due to the fact that those laws only affect law abiding citizens, rendering them defenseless.
Guns don 't kill people, people kill people. One of the biggest problems in the United States is that politicians blame guns for all the problems in the country so they want to ban them, but more gun laws and regulations will not help. Guns have existed since before the American Revolution they will not be going anywhere anytime soon. Though guns are used in many bad confrontations they are also used for good such a the military, hunting, the police force, and even in some countries guns are still used to execute the most dangerous people alive. Though many people would argue those points by saying the military shouldn 't use guns we should fight our wars with wars with words and more peaceful ways of handling other countries.
Many people promoting gun laws are not educated on some of the statistics and ways that guns save and protect innocent people. Gun laws should not be in place because guns are essential for people’s safety, guns prevent mass shootings and terrorism, and banning guns goes against the second amendment. Many people that are pro-gun control want laws because of the fear of robbery or home invasion when in reality if a burglar knows that there is a gun in the house they are targeting, chances are they will not try to rob or invade the home. In Switzerland where crime and homicide rates are some of the lowest in the world, there is a gun in nearly every house in the country. Switzerland’s citizens are
You had great counterarguments about gun control such as, taking away the right to bare arms is putting more people at risk than if we were to just keep the guns. This really spoke out to me because your had a valid point by explaining not once but several times of how taking away guns does affect the innocent people. Just be clear about the information you are
In the year 2014 much debate began on gun laws and whether they should be authorized. This political fight became a disputable issue among Americans. A source at the Smithsonian said, “More Americans thought it was important to protect the right of Americans to own guns than to control gun ownership.” Most Americans believe that their gun ownership is unrelated to someone else 's gun use in crimes. Many people want strict gun control but that won 't help because mass shooters don 't follow the law; strict gun laws won 't reduce violence and the removal of guns would leave people defenseless, especially in a time where terrorism is rampant. Making gun control more strict won 't really make it harder for mass shooters.
Fewer gun safety laws. Does anybody really believe that? There are scores of responsible gun owners in this country --they know that 's not true. We know because of the polling that says the majority of Americans understand we should be changing these laws -- including the majority of responsible, law-abiding gun owners.” I find that this perspective is what is most important to stop the gun violence. Yes our society’s view of masculinity is skewed and unrealistic, but to actively stop shootings from happening, we should be focusing on the guns.
Alexis Clarke Professor Frank English 110 29 October 2015 Gun Control Will Not Eliminate Crime The big issue of gun control in the United States, is that many people believe that it takes away the 2nd Amendment rights, which is the right to bear arms. Citizens of the United States are promised the the right to bear arms in the Constitution, and by applying gun control laws takes away that same right. Crime is high enough in cities with very few laws pertaining to gun control, but taking guns away from people who are registered with license will not solve the problem either. Placing more limitations on gun owners, particularly responsible gun owners, will not reduce gun violence. Although there are rules and regulations already in place there still is a lot of crime occurring, because laws on gun
“ If a person is going to buy a gun and they say they do not care what kind of gun they buy or that they do not care what kind of bullets they get then the worker should not sell them the gun.” If this were to happen then the person buying the gun is probably going to use the gun and ditch it. They could also not know anything about guns and just want to cause harm to some people. “He said there have been break-ins in the area and he’s found people sleeping in the entryway to his business.” (Williams, 24) This explains how you never know what could happen. These people could decide to invade this person’s property and nobody is doing anything about it. “ Some residents for years have urged the city to add more police and increase patrol in the north main street area.” (Williams, 24) This can show that there is more than increasing gun control that will stop this problem if you increase cops in the places we need it then some things can
But, because of those irresponsible gun owners, though, guns cannot be trusted in the hands of some adults. This is the main reason why the ban on guns is proposed. As Patrick Henry once said, “Give me liberty or give me death!” But in this case, he would be saying “give me life or give me
For instance, if the government does not control the people, people will commit more crimes and there will always be chaos. Therefore, one way to reduce the number of crimes, the government must set laws for gun control. Even though our founding fathers set the second amendment, which is “the right to bear arms”, they did not intent for people to use guns in an uneducated
During this prohibition, places became dangerous because gangs were at war as a result of trying to remain in control of alcohol smuggling operations. Thus, in an attempt to fix one problem, the US government created a new one. Thereafter, the government had no other choice but to repeal the law enacting the alcohol prohibition. Additionally, this rise in black market sales would occur because imposing a ban would not address the issue. Instead, the government needs to address the people, the root cause, because people kill people, not guns; guns are merely tools.
Choosing to remove our weapons will only make our America a more hostile environment to live. Taking away that freedom would infuriate a large number of our population, and keeping those individuals peaceful would be a chore in itself. Johnson, Fawn. "Why Gun Control Can’t Eliminate Gun Violence." 18 Sept. 2013.
Although one has to show proper licensing to buy an automatic rifle, it does not take away the fact that these automatic weapons are available to people, who plan on using them against the citizens of the U.S. My intent in this letter is to inform you of the effects of these events. Citizens have to think twice before going into public places. Always in fear of a massacre, citizens are scared to exercise their most basic rights because of these events.
many people in our nation have different views and can easily argue on wither or not Gun Control is being implemented or not. the question is if gun control nonsensical. in my opinion, it is not but that facts that there are people who believe that the supreme courts need to take away our right to guns from every individual is out rages. the reason why the passing of elimination guns will never happen is because, if the government were to take away the citizens guns it would be violating our Second Amendment which is defined as, 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. It also states that the right to bare arms allows us to protect ourselves
Taking away the firearms industry would do more harm than good to the American citizens. Is this what our politicians want? As it is shown, taking away the right to possess firearms and ammunition is not the right answer to solving the problems of the U.S. The purpose in the foundation of this country was to have a free nation, in which the people would govern themselves. The question to be left with is this; will we, the people of the United States, allow our corrupt government to once again put an end to a right that our forefathers graciously bestowed to
