Gun control is a law in which determines how firearms are used, sold and who have the right to use them. There are statistics that show how most of the population of a country is in favor of owning a firearm for self-defense. In my opinion, gun control should be enforced because it will make us safer and would reduce crimes. If people use guns as self-defense then they would increase the homicide rate. Therefore, why won’t people agree with gun control if it will help reduce crimes?
It preys on people’s fears that the government will turn into a dictatorship or completely ban guns…The Founders of our country wanted the people to be able to protect themselves from over powerful governments.” - Is it time to pass tough gun control laws? By McClathy Tribune.

One big problem people have with guns and gun laws today is gun shows. A study conducted by HCI recently came out claiming that 25% to 50% of the venders at gun shows were selling merchandise without a license. This statistic is correct; be that as it may, they failed to mention that the vast majority of these venders were not selling weapons at all but rather were selling gun related merchandise such as clothing and magazines. Even so, the private sellers and the venders who are selling guns as well must report to the government before selling a firearm and after selling the firearm in order for the FBI to track the gun and its new
Did you know there’s about 30,000 deaths and 70,000 gun injuries a year according to the daily news? So there’s about 40-50 deaths a day in America. I am taking a stand on more gun regulation because people who believe that guns needs to be regulated for the following reasons, guns are one of the leading causes of suicide and deaths according to Wikipedia. Also people that have guns commit mass murders, school shooting etc. There are many reasons why guns need to be regulated.

There is a need for gun control and the time to do it is now. Gun control will prevent more mass shootings, like it did in Australia and the United Kingdom, reduce murders drastically, as seen in other countries, and kill off donations to politicians, removing the political influence of guns.
If background checks, and polygraph test, then we can decrease gun violence. There may also be ways to make guns less dangerous to store. New technology in "smart guns" recognizes the owners ' fingerprints or hand grip or has other features controlled by the owner, so firearms can 't be stolen or accidentally fired by a child. Those guns are not currently mass-produced in the U.S., a recent "60 Minutes" report found, in part because of fears that they might lead to greater gun control. There are accidental deaths that happen everyday where a child accidentally shoots him or herself or someone else.
Gun Control/The weapon of Choice Gun Control laws have been up for debate lately as to whether they should be regulated or not in the United States. I think it depends on what type of control over guns is being enforced. As many may know handguns are easily concealed, and they are often the weapon of choice for people who choose to use them for self-defense. Sadly they are also the weapon of choice for criminals which makes it harder for the responsible gun owners and this is where the Gun Control facts play a key role in decision making.
