Any weapon can be deadly, but people want guns banned. Another example is that if there were a good guy with a gun the outcome would be different. In the same article, it states, “In this instance, however, we don 't have to ponder how different the outcome would have been had a "good guy with a gun" been present, since there was one: a police officer working extra duty. Despite being armed and exchanging gunfire with the shooter, the officer was unable to prevent him from gaining entrance to the club.” Sometimes a good guy can’t always save the day. Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger.
Gun control is a very controversial topic. A topic which has become more and more debated recently in light of all the school shootings. Many argue that gun control should be enforce. But truly, gun control should not be enforced, because of your rights and many other reasons. First, The Second Amendment protects your rights.
Gun Control On December 15th, 1791 our Second Amendment right was adopted. As stated in our Bill of Rights, "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 right to bear arms is a right that every American deserves to have to protect themselves and to serve their families. However there are many that believe that because of mindless acts of violence that guns are to blame. The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights.
The second amendment protects people 's rights to have them. Although guns have been used for the wrong reasons. People have obtained guns illegally and put many lives in danger. This has caused the debate of rather gun control should be kept or banned. Gun control is a set of laws or system that manage the use, sale, manufacture, and ownership of firearms.
Zack Storvick 1st Period 1 January 2018 Gun Rights and Gun Control In the United States there shouldn 't be a ban on firearms. Guns should not be taken away from the people. Anti-gun viewers also have valid points such as the mass shootings in our country, but taking away guns would not solve the issues. Gun rights are backed up by the Constitution which is the foundation of our country, gun control wouldn 't stop crime, and the use of background checks plays a vital role when purchasing firearms. The second amendment gives citizens of the United States right to own weapons.
Gangs use gun violence as a way to establish territorial control because they feel like their lives aren’t being valued. Some might say gun violence is a heart problem, but it is a value problem. The US Constitution speaks of equality for all. That should be what is addressed instead of a person’s access to firearms. Increase in Crimes Involving Alternative Weapons.
The Bill of Rights is something the American people hold close to them, especially their right to bear arms. Recently there has been a lot of debate over implementing gun regulations without infringing on the rights of the people. While a position of this is expressed in Wayne LaPierre’s “Universal Background Checks Mean Gun Registration, Gun Bans and Confiscation”, Jeffrey Toobin’s “So You Think You Know the Second Amendment” provides a more valid position evaluating the issue of gun control. Universal background checks are a big discussion lately in our country’s current climate. Some see them as a step toward safety, and others see them as a red flag.
In this case, the AR 15 seems to go against the ultimate goal of protecting people. Therefore, Aristotle would ask who should have sole responsibility of the purchased AR 15 gun? Should the person who purchased the gun also be punished for not keeping a close eye on their gun? In weighing these three aspects, I believe that Aristotle would not have been able to make a decision of whether AR 15’s should be banned. Instead, I think he would have tried to figure out what the “mean between extremes.” The AR 15 should be able to shoot far enough where the civilians can protect themselves from a distance, but not so far that the gun can be used to hurt someone on purpose.
For your protection? You can protect yourself with other items that won’t kill anyone risking your safety. In all honesty, I think that only the US battle force should be allowed gun permits because they know what they’re doing, anyone that hunts should be certified and evaluated by the army. The second amendment is not an unlimited right to own guns. The second amendment states that there should and will be no possession of firearms for anyone with a felony and/or a mental illness.
In today 's society, weapon brutality is a sparking debate and controversy on how to control gun violence. Anyone who thinks that we have enough gun control laws is either the NRA, or severely misguided individuals. All across the nation, a large number of laws and directions have been made to help in the control of firearms. Through much research, the gun laws and regulations have very little effect on the number of firearm-related deaths and injuries. More needs to be done to establish an effective way to create stricter gun laws to help reduce violence.
