Furthermore, More than 1,300 children commit suicide with guns. We should keep children away from guns for their own safety. In conclusion, guns control laws is very important and necessary because the stricter Guns Control laws can reduce the crimes, make our lives safer and protect our children from these massacres. We need stricter gun control laws to prevent more people from perishing in mass shootings. This should no longer be a question of if these laws would infringe on a freedom that Americans
We need to think of others and how they would feel if they lost a loved one of if someone lost you. Firearms had good a bad sides that is hard to tell who is on which side. Gun control debate still going on in congress, because the use of guns can be good in a good way and can save our life and harm it. The unsuccessful gun control policy affect many violence in each year, although there are many programs that help us to use guns in the correct way, people still use it as a4 We should only use it when our life is in danger or is considered as a threat. Some don’t think of it this way they think it’s cool to have a gun, just to see that it’s cool.
To many people are killing themselves with guns. A Little more than half of suicides are done with guns. Making it harder for someone who is not mentally stable to own a gun or someone who will inflict pain on themselves to get a gun. The amount of money that is spent on gun related accidents can decrease if the gun laws were enforced. In theory if the numbers of gun violence drop, taxpayers will be paying less in taxes.
It talks about that even though cars kill many people every year they are not banned, so why should guns be banned. The texts are mainly against banning guns, but the first debater believes that running background checks are important for the safety. Another point of view on this matter is given in text 2 by the third debater, where the writer argues for banning guns. The debater supports this argument by
Guns should be banned in America, with 30,000 deaths yearly in America, we need to do something about it. Many counties have made strict gun control laws or just have banned guns and that seems to be helping them. We have the most gun deaths out of all wealthy countries, which is unacceptable and we need to change it as fast as possible to prevent further deaths. Many people say that guns shouldn't be banned because of how the Second Amendment says, “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.” The Second Amendment was written in 1791, around 225 years ago! Back then there were a lot more uses of guns.
The United States is fast approaching the halfway mark in favor of stricter gun laws; however, the nation still questions the effectiveness of gun control. Republicans support the right to own, use, and carry guns as stated in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution (Kopel). Republicans also believe it is an individual’s right to protect family and property through gun ownership. Gun laws should be left to the individual states
According to ProCon.org “universal background checks could reduce firearm deaths by a projected 56.9%”. As seen in the quote, deaths would decrease substantially since people who are using the gun to hurt would never get them in the first place. Gun control laws would definitely add in background checks in order to get a legal gun. Many gun users also agree with this check on whether or not people should get their background checked before a gun in purchased. People may argue that people can get guns illegally.
Guns are used by millions of police officers every year to protect themselves. Therefore, yes, guns do kill people, but in reality, they also save millions of lives per year. If law enforcement wasn’t allowed to use the tools that they are equipped with, such as firearms, tazers, or pepper spray, there would be tons more cases of cops that were injured trying to protect the people, and do their job. The people that are trying to get rid of guns, don’t understand that if they get rid of guns, the people that are protecting them, won’t be able to protect them anymore, because their main source of protection got taken away. Lots of times, it isn’t even murder, “Estimated 33,636 American’s were killed by firearms in 2013- 63 percent were suicides, and 33.3 percent were homicides.” (Detroit 4) This shows that while people think that every gun death is a murder, that suicides are a huge problem too.
Although some citizens believe that vaccine are harmful and they should get to choose if they get them or not, vaccines can be justified as a safe, effective method to stay immune to diseases. In order to ensure the health of the public and prevent illnesses, it is essential to make vaccines mandatory. When people are not vaccinated, they have a high risk of developing disease, which can lead to sickness and possible death. According to UNICEF, a program providing humanitarian and developmental assistance, 16,000 children die every day from preventable or treatable causes. This statistic shows how many lives we are losing due to the fact that people are not vaccinated.
Here are some facts to take into account. In 2017 alone there have been 2,073 deaths caused by guns, 3,552 injuries, 79 of those children, 34 mass shootings, which is usually defined as four or more people dying. So obviously we have an issue, those numbers are really high compared to most countries that are as developed as us. Which is why I don’t entirely lean to no gun control. Another stat I didn’t mention is defensive use, which has been put at 213.
I feel that gun laws should be made stricter so that crime and violence would decrease because guns usually play a big role in crimes. However, guns shouldn’t be prohibited because it says we have the right to bear arms in the 2nd amendment of the Constitution but the government should be more cautious about guns. “The data shows that strict gun laws reduce violent crimes.” If we have stricter gun laws, the citizens and the environment will be safer. Lives are lost due to gun violence and our community should not have to live in fear over guns. The data “collected by the FBI, show that [guns] were used in 68 percent of murders…” If the government and citizens were more aware of guns, we would not have to witness all these deaths.
“The Actions Taken to Reduce Gun Violence” “Yes, people pull the trigger - but guns are the instrument of death. Gun control is necessary, and delay means more death and horror.” Guns are bringing too much horror to this world. Guns are being used to bring too much harm and they must be controlled. There are new executive actions on gun control. “We’ve created a system in which dangerous people are allowed to play by a different set of rules.” “President Obama introduced a new group of executive actions to reduce gun violence.” Obama is doing all that he can do reduce gun violence.
According to "Reducing Gun Deaths In The USA" (2000:1367), “But the evidence also suggests that, at least in terms of firearm deaths and injuries, efforts to reduce the availability of handguns have had a major effect.” However, to this day it is still easy to obtain a FOID card and a concealed carry permit. With that being said, if more federal gun-control laws went into effect, the outcome may positively influence the amount of gun violence we see today in
