While a man from the NRA, Brian Calabrese, said self-defense is used in various ways, the thought of a panicked person with a gun during a crime is not beneficial. From my perspective, I don’t want to live in a society where the at any point in time, I should be ready to shoot a gun. The arms race which Kelly Sampson was talking about, also made me think about how different society would be if the arms race ensued. Most of society would have to adapt to the norm of owning a gun, which would force the criminals to get stronger and higher capacity firearms. In this hypothetical society, I believe there would be a much higher death and crime rate.
Gun limitation is an unpopular opinion, and the elimination of guns altogether can be protested with evidence from the Constitution. The Second Amendment gives the citizens the right to bear arms, and there is a section of the document that states that the “pursuit of happiness” is a right that the government is not allowed to remove. Granted, the pursuit of happiness argument is unstable, because the ending of lives due to guns is another violation of the constitution, but the argument is valid for those who use guns responsibly, and do no harm to others with them. Even though eliminating guns is an unpopular opinion, the evidence still point to the fact that mass shooting numbers have increased substantially in the most recent decade. There are however, some people who have a viewpoint on the other end of the spectrum-meaning that they want no restrictions on guns at all.
According to the second amendment of the constitution of the United States of America, the citizens have the right to possess and bear arms. This passage has been used for gun control advocates and gun control opponents alike; both parties agree that not all citizens should be allowed to own guns. People opposed to gun control legislation think that all upcoming legislations should be focused on mental health problems. They acknowledge that there is no gun problem in the U.S, we just have a cultural problem. Americans feel safer having a gun at home, in some homes in the U.S. they own a gun for extra protection.
My personal belief on guns is that they are there to protect us as a society. Whether it be a police officer or a soldier or even your mom, guns can be used for good. I was brought up around guns and I learned how to safely handle them, but others do not have the experience I do and therefore misuse their weapon. We are protected under the second amendment right –the right to bear arms for all citizens—(US constitution) but all citizens includes criminals and mentally insane. Most crimes involving guns, the person is to later be found out to be insane, such as the movie theater killer, he obviously wasn’t in any frame of mind to own a gun.
The gun control crisis in America Since the second amendment states that citizens have the right to bear arms guns should be more accessible to citizens, restrictions relaxed in the process of buying the firearm, and there should be no more new gun laws drafted. The second amendment protects our rights to carry and possess a firearm. The current laws with in our country have put more restrictions on Guns and have made them harder to obtain. These new laws violate our constitutional rights as US citizens and are taking guns away from the people who want to use them correctly and without confrontation. It has also made it more difficult to defend yourself against another person with a gun.
Many groups feel the amendment should be rewritten. That it was written for a different place in history. Anti-gun groups feel guns are too easy to purchase. And requirements are not strict enough for ownership. They believe guns should be outlawed except for law enforcement.
If anything, in the current political climate we are in today, there would be much more social pressure for one not to own a gun than there would be to continue owning one. The stigma around guns still exists today that one only wants a gun to show off and go hunting and promote one's “toxic masculinity” as the article so gracefully puts. Nonetheless, the rhetorical questions the rhetor uses would be effective to someone on the more liberal side of the aisle to continue and promote their specific ideology about who uses guns and
Gun control is not of one issue, it is of many. To some people gun control is a rights issue, to others it is a crime issue. Yes, a United States citizen may have the right to bear arms under the second amendment of the Constitution, but it does not mean that every United States citizen should have the ability to own a firearm. Those that have taken advantage of the right to bear arms should not be allowed to own a firearm. Within each of these issues there are those who want more gun control legislation and those who want less.
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
is our 2nd amendment. Some Americans and political parties believe that the 2nd amendment should be taken away because it endangers the lives of Americans. The American people should be allowed to bear arms because it provides safety of our country and ourselves. In today’s world guns are used more than 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Citizens who abide by the rules use their guns to defend themselves, their
Do you own a gun, do you want a gun, you might not be able to get one as easy any more The topic being explained has or will affect most of America. This topic is gun control which is a rule that makes it harder to buy and use guns. Gun control is a topic and argument being spread across america. The reason this topic was brought up was because in 2015 some bad attacks in different places around the world. This is a good rule but only in some situations, because if this rule is in place and someone is allowed to have a weapon then they couldn’t do anything also if this was in place it would be much harder to do things like hunting and other gun sports.
from obtaining weapons that they could use irresponsibly may help to prevent the loss of innocent lives. The anti-gun control side states that gun control infringes on our second amendment rights thus threatening our freedom. I didn’t understand this defense too well, so I decided to investigate myself. To understand the other side better, I decided to interview a fellow acquaintance who is a gun supporter and who is quite dedicated to the cause, as he is the president of a pro-gun club. I wanted to know how the other side could believe and justify more guns as a way to actually prevent deaths, as more people die from weapon injuries in the United States than any other civilized country in the world.
Paris has some of the strictest gun laws in the world and after the recent attack most citizens want guns, guns to defend themselves because the police can’t get there in time. Either you implement a big brother system that cuts police response time in half or you allow private citizens to carry concealed firearms. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. When a bombing occurs you blame the bomber not the pressure cooker or pipe used in the pipe bomb, when a stabbing happens you blame the stabber not the knife. Why aren’t we pushing for the outlaw of pressure cookers and knives, they can be used to kill people just as well as guns.
He argues that America is in need of more laws in order to ensure gun safety is honest and correct. For example, a lot of innocent people have died by consequence of unregulated gun possession, and more enforcement should lower events like these. However, his analogy to terrorism in this argument is not really stable. Firstly, because he compares mass shootings to terrorism, it makes it seem as if they are not far apart. However, terrorism is when people not from the U.S. try to harm American residents for the sole reason that they are American.
