Over the course of history most deaths are caused by guns. 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.
Semi-automatic rifles are a threat to the lives of children and adults, regardless. The United States possesses most of the world’s guns and has the highest gun ownership rate internationally; many of those firearms will find themselves into malicious hands and the people of the U.S. need to seize them before more people die. The recent debate over banning semi-automatic rifles has risen to the nation’s attention; rates of mass shootings are rising and recent shooters have been using assault weapons to increase the rate of how many people they can kill in a given time. It is time that semi-automatic rifles are to be swept off store shelves. People tend to get tangled in opinions and quotes on rather semi-automatic weapons should be banned or not, such as if they are protected by the second amendment, halting lawmakers from banning them.
This law empowers any American citizen to possess a firearm thus, people who have psychological deficiencies can buy a gun as easy as you. This law does not only empower Americans as it causes the death of 30,000 people per year, and half of this substantial number
U.S President Donald trump received $30 million dollars this year from the National Rifle Association (NRA). In the articles, “Famous Speeches: We call BS, Emma Gonzalez 's speech to gun advocates,” and “Issue overview: Guns in America they talk about how there have been so many school shooting across the world due to random people being able to buy any gun they want without having a license or just being under age. President Donald Trump has apologized so many times for the school shooting that have happened, but not even one time have we done anything to stop these outrages on gun violence. There is a website called, “shootingtracker.com,” it lists all the shootings that have happened all around the world at, what time, place, how many citizens
Although he knows that this task is impossible, he thinks that America would be a far better society without them. To support his opinions, he provides research that states “Over 30,000 Americans dead every year, and tens of thousands more maimed and paralyzed.” How does Waldman know that this piece of information is referring to gun usage? There is no evidence provided to prove that over 30,000 Americans die every year due to just guns. Guns are not the only weapon available in America for people to use in harmful ways. Due to new technologies developing daily, it gets easier and easier for people to find new ways to take innocent lives.
America’s mayors have come to a consensus that these weapons of mass destruction are destroying the nation’s communities, cities, and families. Nutter goes on to reveal some surprising information, stating that out of the average 100,000 people that are shot each year, over 30 percent end up dying, while only 10 percent were intentional homicides (Lane 2015). Every year approximately 18,000 children are shot, only further proving the school shooter epidemic our country faces. This sort of violence is nearly exclusive to urban areas, as cities make up 15 percent of the population but account for 39 percent gun related murders and 23 percent total homicides. Nutter is proposing a ban on assault weapons, quite similar to a 1994 ban that decreased total gun murders by 6.7 percent and the types of shootings they were most often used in, specifically ones with multiple victims and police officers as victims.
First, the report states that “states have granted concealed carry permits to domestic abusers, criminals, the mentally ill, and suicidal individuals, among others.” This can be proven false right away, since to own a concealed carry permit, let alone most kinds of firearms in general. An applicant has to pass a background check. So anyone with a criminal record or who is mentally unstable won’t be able to receive a concealed carry permit. Later on, the report claims that in 29 instances, people used their concealed carry permits to carry out mass killings. After looking closer at these claims, all but three were proven that a concealed carry permit, or the lack of one, would 've made any difference, as the person was planning on committing the crimes anyway.
In America, people are allow to use gun, around 93 americans are killed with gun on an average day in America. Thesis: (Tell listeners what action you want them to take—OR—how you want them to think.) Gun caused violent, we must banned gun and stop using them for forever! Qualification: (Tell listeners your personal experience with your topic, making you qualified to affect their opinions about it.) The mass shooting in Paris, November 2015 is one of the most horrible terrorist attacks I had ever knew.
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.
On the left, they argue that some teachers are “crazy” and there shouldn’t be guns put into their hands, there is also a chance that a student may steal the weapon and go on a rampage. The right looks at it from a criminal’s point of view, if a shooter has to pick between 2 schools to shoot up; one with carrying teachers, and one without any guns, which would they pick? In an article published my Matthew Lynch, he stated that over 80 percent of the prisoners in America are high-school dropouts. There is a major correlation between education and success in this country. Guns were probably used in many of these crimes that resulted in the shooter being put into prison.
According to a 2000 report by engineering statistician William Sturdevan, in Texas the general public is 5.3 times more likely to be arrested for violent offenses and 14 times more likely to be arrested for nonviolent offenses than concealed carry weapon permit holders. The Christian Science Monitor reported that “ the number of incidents in which concealed gun carries kill innocent people is a fraction of 1% of all gun related homicides. As one could see, concealed carry is a very important right in the US. This is why I think it important to be able to legally be allowed to conceal and carry a weapon or be able to own one for protection. Whether it’s because it’s a second amendment for people to bare arms or statistics of all assaults that could have been prevented if it would have been legal for people to protect.

In the constitution of the united States, it is written that everyone has the right to live and everyone has the right to pursuit happiness. If someone with a handgun takes those rights away, by killing someone, the results are fatal because citizens have the right to own a gun, as well. Additionally, in the Bill of Rights, it states that the government promises to take care of the general welfare.
There is a problem with gun related violence in the U.S. but there is a perception that it has suddenly worsened, in reality things have been in bad for a while. What the media does not say is that of 30,000 gun deaths 20,000 of those people killed themselves with a gun (Goldberg 2012 pg 70). Some of these facts are shocking to hear. Even though gun control is the first thing
Is Gun control the answer? These type of questions are being asked by lawmakers. Researchers are saying that taking away all guns is not the answer and are looking for other ways to prevent mass shootings. In the U.K almost all handguns were banned from civilian possession in 1977. Morris M. says “The rate for intentional homicide in the UK in 1996—the year of the Dunblane Massacre—was 1.12 per 100,000.
