Although people believe that this new law is protecting schools from more mass shootings, I believe that allowing concealed carry on the college campus is a bad plan of action because people of that age don 't know how to react in a situation where a gun could be needed, people will abuse their "gun-rights" powers, and it has the potential to cause even more outbreaks of school shootings. Imagine you are a 21-year-old in college. You know the very basics of how to handle a firearm, where the trigger is, where the safety is, where to aim, and that 's about it. You just came from your most difficult class and you 've been assigned so much homework you could hardly
The control of weapons on some people is a crime, and for others it is a matter. Gun control is a safety, educational, racial, and political issue. Within these problems, there are those who want more legislation and those who do not want less. Both sides have opinions that range from mediocre to extreme. Authorization to possess weapons must be necessary to eliminate the rising rates of death each year due
Citizens should be well informed about: the argument for gun control and why it is the best way of dealing with the issue, the arguments against gun control, and the new laws being placed by President trump concerning the new age limit of purchasing a firearm, allowing school personnel to be armed with the consent of the board, and seizing weapons from those with mental disabilities. A huge question facing gun owners is now, are they willing to give up the firearms they possess to save another human beings life? Gun Control should be put into action to keep school shootings from happening and protecting the children of America. The significant
Having gun control would help lessen the deaths by firearms in the country for a variety of reasons. Solutions can be made to help the problems with death by guns in the United States, this in term may fix the problems with the second amendment. One solution that may help the situation of the second amendment is the accessibility to certain guns .Many mass shootings include military-style weapons ,such as assault rifles, which are more powerful than normal guns and prove to be highly lethal. In an article by Infobase Learning called "Assault Weapons: Should the government restrict access to assault weapons?" done in 2016 it talks about what happened in the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting it states, “...20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children aged 6 and 7, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, before killing himself.
Gun Laws On Feburary 14, 2018 in Parkland Florida, a 19-year-old gunman who was a former student, opened fire at his old high school. The shooter killed 17 and injured 14. After the incident, many U.S citizens talked about gun control. The phrase “gun laws” trended on Google bringing the intrest rate from 11 to 100 within minutes. While this trend was tipping, this same tendency has been popular before, an example being the Sandy Hook shooting in December of 2012.
The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights. The second amendment (the right to bear arms) was within the first 10 amendments to be put into our Bill of Rights. As the supreme court stated, the right to bear arms belongs completely to those as individuals. The purpose of the second amendment to be made was to make sure that the government couldn’t unarm our militias and make federal standing armies. When argued that the Second Amendment is purely to keep from disarming the state militias can not be entirely true, for it is said in the last half of the Amendment itself “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.
Guns, in many people 's minds, are a very dangerous weapon and a threat, so that 's why gun laws are enforced. In 2017 gun laws in the U.S. are very hotly debated, with nongun owners saying more gun laws should be enforced gun owners saying there should not be more laws enforced, some even argue to rename gun restrictions. Gun owners say that people who are making these laws do not know what they are talking about because they have never owned a gun so they wouldn 't know that most gun owners do not use guns for violence but maybe for hunting and target practicing. But then again this could be argued by non-gun owners that the other percentage of owners that have guns do use their guns for violence. So because of this more gun laws should be enforced because more gun control laws would reduce gun deaths, guns are rarely used in self-defense and hunters and civilians should not own military-grade firearms and accessories.
Bump stocks are another point of interest for gun control supporters. A bump stock is an attachable stock to a firearm that simulates automatic fire by using the recoil of the gun to aid in successively pulling the trigger to increase fire rate. Gun control supporters are trying to get a ban on these attachments because they do not feel like civilians should have the power to own anything like an automatic weapon “He said he wanted the Department of Justice to ‘propose regulations that ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns.’” Another focus is magazine size restriction. Advocates for gun control believe that 30 rounds is high capacity and any firearm should not be allowed to hold more than around 10 rounds. These are only a few of the things the supporters of gun control want to
It prohibits sales to individuals under indictment or convicted of crimes of violence.” This suggests that citizens who want a gun or purchasing a gun will need a license of an interstate gun dealers. Those who are making crimes such as mass shootings, manslaughter, burglary, etc are not allowed to get a gun. Therefore with stricter gun law will show those who are creating mass shooting and committing burglary, etc that they are expecting to do a criminal history/ background checks also that is can not be easy to get a gun. In the month of February there was a mass shooting in the school of Parkland, Florida. Emma Gonzalez spoke out on a rally on Saturday
Banning assault weapons may put many people in danger. Multiple people live in certain environments where they need these types of weapons to protect them. By banning assault weapons this might ruin their entire life. On the “New York Post”, they state banning of assault weapons is nothing but a symbolism and will not be a difference. The article states this because even if assault weapons were to ban, there will still be handguns and all types of firearms out there.
