Do you have a gun in your household? Should people carry guns with them? Michael Steele once said,”You can have all the gun control laws in the country, but if you don 't enforce them, people are going to find a way to protect themselves. We need to recognize that bad people are doing bad things with these weapons. It 's not the law-abiding citizens, it 's not the person who uses it as a hobby.
Did you know there’s about 30,000 deaths and 70,000 gun injuries a year according to the daily news? So there’s about 40-50 deaths a day in America. I am taking a stand on more gun regulation because people who believe that guns needs to be regulated for the following reasons, guns are one of the leading causes of suicide and deaths according to Wikipedia. Also people that have guns commit mass murders, school shooting etc. There are many reasons why guns need to be regulated.
Roughly 142 school shootings have happened since the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut leaving 30 dead, 53 injured, and hundreds traumatized, and, unfortunately, this butchering seems like it is becoming a bit gray (Staff). Do Americans simply just do not care about our young adults anymore? There are several possibilities that different people can come up with to solve this epidemic, but only one solution will truly decipher this problem. We need to allow guns to be permitted on college campuses.
She states “because of the numerous amounts of loopholes in our countries current gun restrictions, it is pointless to keep enforcing these laws. A whole new set of tighter stricter gun laws should be enacted instead for a real change to occur” (Watkins). She does bring up a valid point here. These loopholes have resulted in some instances where people purchased a gun from a private seller without having to go through the standard waiting period and background checks that would typically occur if a gun was being purchased from a licensed arms dealer; however even with these “loopholes” the seller must report to the government the weapon being sold as well as the intended buyer of said weapon. One big problem people have with guns and gun laws today is gun shows.
If it wasn’t already enough sending soldiers out into the battle field. School should be one of the safest places in which one’s son/daughter can get an education, make long lasting memories and graduating starting the next chapter of their lives. No parent should be worried sending their son/daughter, however it has become a concern. “On April 20, 1999, two teens went on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, killing 13 people and wounding more than 20 others before turning their guns on themselves and committing suicide” (History). If they were able to obtain lethal weapons to harm others then anyone can have access to assault weapons.
Recently, a miserable mass-shooting incident in Las Vegas has caused 58 deaths and approximately 500 injuries which was the fatalist gun-related incident in history of the United States (CBS NEWS, 2017). Besides, the number of gun violence incidents has increased from 51,882 in 2014 to 58,784 in 2016 (Gun Violence Archive, 2017). The stunning incident and the upsurge in gun violence in the recent years provoke much public debate about whether guns should be ban completely in the United States. Waldman (2017), a senior writer of The American Prospect Magazine and a blogger of The Washington Post, suggested only allowing a small group of people who have special need to own their private gun like in other Asian countries in order to stop heavy casualties caused by guns every year. Maltz Bovy (2015), the author of ‘’The Perils of Privilege’’, agreed to ban guns completely with a view to forbid guns from entering the realm of possibility.
