In today’s society, one of the most alienating issues in American politics is gun control. More specifically, the issue is whether or not guns should be banned in the United States. Some people would say that guns should be banned because it would reduce crime as a whole and keep citizens safer. These people, enthusiasts of stricter gun laws, fear being safe in their country where there are so many people who have access to guns. Opponents of this argument, however, also fear losing safety.
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
The article states, “Gun control deters violent crime as well as the death penalty” (Hunter). The author uses logos here to point out that gun control is an ineffective as the death penalty when it comes to preventing violence. This supports his argument against strict gun control because, according to Hunter, many Liberals claim to oppose the death penalty because it does little to prevent future crime, yet Liberals are for strict gun control. However, strict gun control isn’t going to prevent criminals from committing crimes, because criminals do not follow the law
Congress needs to find a way to assure that the right to bear arms is protected, but also legally keep guns out of the hands of certain people. Some people believe that felons and individuals considered to be mentally diminished should be prevented from owning any firearms; while others believe in unrestricted rights to bear arms under the Second Amendment.
The Bill of Rights puts limitations on American citizens and are to protect us from harm. The two most important amendments in the Bill rights is amendment one and two. Protecting people’s beliefs and right to protect themselves by carrying an armed weapon are important. Gun control is also an issue that leads to if we should add more restrictions or more freedom. In the Bill of Rights, the first amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” I believe this is the most important to the maintenance
The meaning of the right to bear arms is so that the people have weapons to protect themselves but in the hands of mentally unstable people, others are in danger. I think that if the people’s safety are at risk, the constitution and all the amendments would be completely disregarded, security comes first and foremost for all and I’m afraid that’s the only line that is holding the constitution
Peter Tucci, a free-lance journalist form the Daily Caller, argues against the establishment of more gun-control saying that it is not efficacious, widespread gun ownership protects citizens, and that gun control does not ensure the safety of the public. However, there is extensive research that suggests that the very opposite is true. The implementation of stricter gun control laws is now more important than ever because they are they are an effective means to reduce crimes and widespread gun ownership is deleterious to the safety of the public. The most frequently used argument against gun-control is that these laws simply are not effective. This is far from the truth as gun control has actually been shown to lower crimes rates.
Some believe that this is a terrible amendment to have our country live by, this group supports enforcing gun laws or even abolishing guns all together. This is not the only side of the argument though, there are opposers to enforcing gun laws that believe that there are already enough laws for buying guns and what you can do with them. The opposers also believe that we should focus more of our efforts on the mental health of the people instead of the guns they use. The debate on gun control is a very pressing matter. Some believe that the laws on gun control should be stricter, while others believe the laws should be looser for self-defense and hunting.
Turning the gun around and pointing it at himself. Guns are used as a medium into each characters emotional state. Throughout the story they are used to signify power, dominance, control, and how each character used the weapon and its meaning to achieve (or ultimately fail at achieving) their goal through the narrative. It is Connah’s gun violence that leads to him being detained and questioned, and it is Connah’s loathing towards couples, and his poor grip on control over his own actions that leads to such events. His access to firearms allowed his polluted thoughts to cause harm to others.
As we all know citizens in U.S. have the right to possess guns that should be used as one of the self-defending tools. And this is causing a big problem because people are misusing them. Therefore, I believe the guns should be banned in the U.S. It is no exaggeration to say that guns are the key element to cause the instability in the society of U.S. The citizens are possessing guns in U.S. and this is a huge risk for the government and the safety of society itself.
