For example, seventeen students lost their lives and many were injured in a school shooting that happened in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida during valentines day. This event is the recent controversial issue that caused many people to debate and protest more about gun control. The suspect Nikolas Cruz was a high school student who goes to the same high school where the shooting happened. He is apparently suffering from a mental health issue. The family that took him in after his adoptive mother died last November said that they knew he was lonely, depressed and a bit odd but saw no warning signs of a coming massacre (Levenson).
DeGrazia also believes that owning a gun increases the likelihood that a person will be killed in their own home whether accidentally or intentionally (Hsiao and Berstein). The Democratic Party believes that stricter background checks will deter guns from being purchased by the wrong people. That might be true, but will it stop a violent person from committing a
Allowing concealed carry on college campuses would not change the guidelines about who can receive a concealed license or buy a gun. The key to safety is to always be prepared for the worst. We wear safety belts in our cars, place helmets on our children’s heads, and lock our doors at night because we know these safety precautions will reduce the risk of harm to us. So just like we protect ourselves on a daily basis, we will now start to protect ourselves by allowing the same trained, licensed adults who legally carry concealed handguns when not on college campuses to do so on college
“Just in 2018 there has been 18 school shootings, on average per week” (snopes:How many school shootings have taken place so far in 2018). The incidents that have occurred have been a big impact in people 's lives. Yet no one with power has spoken about the problems regarding the recent shooting. See, there are two main sides of gun control, the side that agrees and the side that doesn’t. People who agree believe that no one should be able to own a gun, or that there should simply be stricter gun control laws.
The amount of people calling for a full ban are in the vast minority; most people advocating for gun control just want to make sure that average people, not the mentally ill or felons, can own a gun for self-defense, hunting or recreational shooting. There are more guns than people in this country, and while it may be difficult or pointless to regulate the legal, over the table purchase of them, it’s better than doing nothing, or letting teachers carry guns, which would do nothing but cause more chaos, fear, and deaths. Your 2nd amendment rights are not restricted by having to pass a background check or mental health test, in the same way that your 1st amendment rights are not restricted because you cannot say “fire!” in a movie theater or threaten someone’s life. Amendments need to adapt to be applicable, and an amendment written by people 240 years ago should not and will not be applied the same way as it is in the

Gun control is what restricts people from buying and using guns, but these laws are not strengthened at the extent they need to be strengthened. This leads to many people getting these guns and using them to cause mass shootings all over the U.S. For example, according to the Council on Foreign Relationship, a news article that covers major world issues, in 2017, mass shootings at a music festival in Las Vegas and at a church near San Antonio have rekindled the gun control debate (“U.S. Gun Policy: Global Comparisons”). The fact that gun control is still not tightened is a huge margin and error, and still causes mass shootings as we just covered. Many people have said that we should not allow guns to be purchased, which would seem like the logical option. However, according to the same source, Council on Foreign Relationship, some states, such as Idaho, Alaska, and Kansas, have passed various laws attempting to nullify
has weak gun laws, the background checks are ineffective, and too many mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. Massacres and tragedies keep reoccurring throughout America at the hands of guns. The reason of blame falls on the shoulders of the U.S. because the government is inept to the fact that the gun laws are not strong enough, the backgrounds checks are useless, and that mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. If gun violence is to decrease in America there needs to be immediate action taken by the government to make stronger gun laws, harsher and effective background checks and ban all mentally ill people from owning a gun. These can be the steps taken by the government of the U.S. to create harsher gun control and a safer environment to live
Hundreds of children are forced to put in the army but some kids join on their own and suffer years and when they try to come out they come out worse than when they joined. They come out with broken bones or even missing body pieces, some kids don't even make it back out they die or they kill them before even starting war. Poverty kills children and also eventually kills family because of the children dying, the government doesn't care about children but they do care about winning a war. “Special attention will be given to the young women and girls, who are likely to have suffered sexual abuse, so that they can rejoin their communities without the stigma associated with such abuse.” young women suffer more than male soldiers, females are abused sexually and are thrown back to there
The application for a handgun license begins at the local police department where a background check and fingerprinting will be operated. Once the application approved, then, New York State Police Department requires personal references for consideration. Then, pick Up the License & Purchase Authorization, buy a Gun and at last you are free to use it with permit. Gun control laws sometimes create a direct ban on some types of guns, including Unregistered and illegal guns, hideded weapons, assault guns. There is restriction on owning or possessing guns who are Convicted criminal and aliens who are the people without documents.
Each year three hundred thousand to six hundred thousand children are victims of child abuse. Of those children forty percent of those victims are five years old or younger (Berger, G. ). Not everyone has the same opinions about child discipline. On one side of the debate are those people, mostly parents, who feel that any kind of violence, including a slap on the hand or spanking, is harmful (Berger, G.). Parents on the other side of the debate however feel that strict discipline - up to and including corporal punishment such as beating - is necessary to prevent children from growing up “spoiled” (Berger, G.).
With all of these injuries sports are giving kids, they are having to be taken out of school. So, the injuries are forcing them to go to the doctors and take time off of school or stay at home because of the pain which then is making them miss time. 3.5 million kids 14 and under just in the U.S. are injured by sports a year (according to Stanford Children 's Health). Coaches are also known for making athletes go to the doctors during school so that they don’t miss any time during practice. This means that the parents are putting their child behind in school for sports!
Numerous people own firearms and pose no threat to public safety. However, when individuals with a history of violence, substance abuse, and serious mental illness can access firearms due to the existing gun laws, the risk of deadly violence increases greatly. Guns should only be in the battlefield and not in the schools, movie theaters, churches, and communities. To make gun laws make more sense to people, a culture of gun safety should be established.
Gun control problems Nowadays, we can hear the crimes related to guns from time to time, and each of them is scarified and influential. For example, the accident happened in Sandy Hook Elementary School leads to 20 deaths for primacy school students and 6 deaths for staffs. It is hard to imagine what degree of sadness in their family may suffer. In this way, many people think the government should have stronger gun control regulations.
