However, it seems like the criminals will still go their way of getting the guns and ammunition, but people who obey the laws will be the ones who suffer, since it will take them longer to get the guns for protection. At this time, many people who break the law are better armed than the police officers that are supposed to protect the citizens. It is difficult for them to do their job against higher power from the criminals. Those who properly own guns would not be able to defend themselves if a situation came to that point. Making something illegal means that its production will spread into homes of such criminals, thus possibly making weapons less safe.
CJ Grisham, the writer of this article, states that open carry is a good thing in America. He states that if a criminal sees a target with a gun they aren’t as likely to attack them because “Criminals prefer soft targets.” Even though CJ makes a good point here, he is forgetting some key information. What about the criminal? Open carry gives everyone the right to carry their guns out in the open, even the criminal attacking other people.
(Richards, Paragraph 4) With the system being like this it leaves for a lot of loopholes for the criminals and their helpers to get through to purchase a gun. Stricter background checks in gun shows and online websites would make for a safer gun buying experience because a person will know who is getting the gun that is being sold. The people that do not want this, say it is harder for them and takes more time to go through the process of getting a gun, but if they know they have a clean record then what do they have to lose? A stricter background check should not affect anybody but the bad people and criminals that do not have any business with guns anyway. In a separate study, “Webster found that firearm-related homicides in Connecticut dropped 40 percent after the state adopted a 1995 law that required anyone seeking to buy a handgun to apply for a permit with the local police, complete at least eight hours of safety training, and be 21 years old.”
As said by Kelly Sampson, on behalf of the Brady Campaign, allowing concealed carry would force the criminals to get higher damage guns, which would lead to an unnecessary amount of guns. If criminals got higher grade weapons, it would mean more violent crimes and more deaths. Obama once said “There is a gun for roughly every man, woman, and child in America. So how can you, with a straight face, make the argument that more guns will make us safer?” and many people on the pro-gun control side stand by this.
Guns are responsible for almost thirty thousand deaths a year in America a little bit more than half of those deaths are suicides. America has a big problem with guns there are about 280 million to 300 million guns in private hands of americans. Gun shops need to do more background checks and see their mental health that could stop and incident like the gunmen who took thirty two lives at Virginia Tech in 2007. There have been more shootings like this one in various schools around the country.
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
We can save a lot money, just think about it. Since Everyone is going to have their owns guns and make justice as they please we won 't have to pay police officers because everyone is going to make justice as to see what they think it 's right. We can save money and resources by not having jails because rarely there would be crime. Everyone is gonna be scared to break the laws because everyone will
During the National Rifle Association (NRA) Press Conference on December 21, 2012, Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre, speaks out against these activists and exclaims “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” After hearing about the tragedy, Lapierre wants every school in America to deploy a protection program to keep its students safe. The NRA faces criticism from all over America, about how they are to blame, but Lapierre puts the blame on video games and violent movies such as, “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.” He questions, “Isn’t fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?” Lapierre is willing to give training to both students and teachers on the proper precautions
The bottom line is we need to put guns in the hands of the right people and dropping Gun control laws is how we’re going to do that. The more guns on the street the better as it equals more people that can defend themselves as well as the lives of other citizens. Making guns more accessible to our citizens is one thing that maybe harder than it sounds.
Teen violence and teen gang involvement escalated in the 1990s and has remained high. Youth are the most likely group to be victims or perpetrators of teen violence, but the results of teen violence affect everyone. Youth violence statistics show this is a serious problem: •An average of 15 young people are killed each day in the U.S., and over 80 percent of those are killed with guns. •In 2004, violence statistics report 750,000 young people were treated in hospitals for violence-related injuries.
This too, could be dangerous, because people who are not prepared to deal with the responsibility of using a gun could obtain one. It is a scary thought to think that they could even obtain the gun legally. This would also make access to weapons much easier for people who are planning to use them to harm others for whatever the reason. The best possible solution to the problem is to put background checks in place for people buying guns. This will
"Research consistently shows that having a gun is the safest way to respond to any type of criminal attack, especially these multiple victim shootings” says Dr. John Lott, an astute resident at the American Enterprise Institute and author of the famous book “More Guns, Less Crime”. Most criminals don’t want to fight, but in the case that the criminal is bent on leaving no witnesses, I would like to have a gun. America is built on freedom and people have the freedom to not carry a gun, but do not impede my freedom to carry one. If having a gun is the safest way to respond to any type of criminal attack then any reasonable person should come to the conclusion that people should be allowed to concealed carry a firearm in public.
Yes, they might be using a gun, but the gun is not the one that is making the decision to do it. The people are ultimately responsible for it all, not the gun (11). Some other big arguments that gun right advocates talk about are, criminals will always find a way to obtain the guns, so taking away the guns from citizens will leave them without something
Does Gun Control Work? Man has ruled over the earth for centuries. Using spears and swords to kill animals for food or to fight man on the battlefield. Then a new substance and tool was created to change the whole world. There have been reports of the mix of gunpowder creating explosions.
The Columbine shooting took place on April 20, 1999. Two boys from the high school shot and killed many people, including one teacher. They had been planning the attack for months. They took innocent lives. Many questions have been asked about this and the one mostly asked was “Why did they do it?”.
