This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting. Now, I can agree with some of the laws the movement is pushing but most of it can easily be debunked. If the nation wants stricter background checks and mental health checks I completely agree with those statements. But, raising the purchasing limit to 21 for a rifle does not help anything, the child who tried to shoot up a Maryland was a seventeen-year-old student and he had a handgun (which is only permitted until the age of 21). What I am saying, is a criminal can easily get their hands on a firearm if they wanted to.
Cars have been regulated greatly since 1921 and the death toll has gone down to 95 percent for every 100 million miles driven, if we regulate guns the way we do with cars the death toll could also go down greatly and we wouldn't have to worry about these shootings happening. Additionally, we can also have tighter gun laws to help reduce gun violence. According to Nicolas Kristoff in "How to Reduce Shootings", tightening gun laws would
In the United States of America certain regulations are definitely necessary for public safety. The regulations are there to better the nation and not further control it. The government can not get rid of everyone 's right to own and keep a gun but, they can simply control the amount of guns able to be purchased. Therefore, the government is not taking away peoples guns but, simply regulating those who can or cant not own them to better protect the citizens of America. And thus any remarks about the government taking away peoples guns are untrue, the government is doing this for everyone 's well
It’s should be banned and become illegal! (Although it is the first part of your outline, DO NOT begin your speech delivery by stating your exact purpose. The first thing you say should be your attention grabber.) INTRODUCTION Attention Grabber: (Statement to wake the audience up/ make sure they are listening!) In America, people are allow to use gun, around 93 americans are killed with gun on an average day in America.
In District of Columbia et al. v. Heller, The US Supreme Court agrees with me when they say: The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home(gun-control.procon.org). But if gun control is enforced, this will not be true. It will leave lawful
Guns should not be allowed to be used to anyone, this can lead to serious consequences as these may be badly used for assaulting places or shootings. With stricter handgun laws and appropriate licensing, there shall be fewer casualties to save lives for a better society with no fear and safety for all. To start with, guns are risky objects that contradict the lives of people regardless of mental illness. Many
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, “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.” Whether or whether not the United States should implement stricter gun laws has been a controversial issue for a long time. “Gun control" is the popular name for laws that aspire to restrict or regulate guns by choosing who the government deems most suitable to sell, buy, and possess certain firearms in order to reduce the crime rate. Supporters of gun control most oftenly call for laws that restrict law-abiding people, the only people who will obey them. Many pro gun control advocates believe that gun control does not go against the Constitution,
Gun Control Have you ever wondered why gun control is around and why people oppose or agree with it? Well gun control is the attempt to make laws on purchasing, selling, trading, and producing firearms. The Second Amendment is one of the reasons why people oppose or agree with gun control. The U.S. government had made many laws for gun control over the years (Benson). The third reason why people either oppose or side with gun control are the pros and cons in the past, such as how many deaths because of guns and how many deaths for not the use of guns to protect yourself.
The second amendment argument is a favorite topic for both sides of this argument. It can be used to help aid both sides of the gun control debate. Loopholes are another part of this grand argument, used by the side opposed to gun control, saying that loopholes are impossible to close, while the pro gun control side argues that stricter gun control and background checks make these loopholes not an issue. Both sides can be easily argued, but there is only one side that can save countless lives. Stricter gun control will work to pr otect citizens by limiting gun violence, keeping Second Amendment rights, and closing gun loopholes.
GUN CONTROL Gun control will always be a very significant issue in United States as well as any country that has rules allowing citizens to bare arms. There are those who believe that Americans should not possess guns at all—not one single gun of any kind what so ever. They think the nation would be better without them. All guns have the prospective to be dangerous and should be controlled and handled with much care and cautiousness. Firearms have been part of American life for as long as people can recall.
In 1998 the FBI issued the first background check for the purchase of a handgun. Even the briefest of background checks can keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons. More extensive background checks can look into medical records and stop people with extreme personality disorders from getting guns. People with bipolar disorder can suffer from manic highs followed by suicidal lows and if you pair that combination with the possession of a firearm the result will more then likely be catastrophic. A gun background check consists of a mental and criminal check, and the completion of a 16 question form with questions related to a person 's
Where the weapons were obtained in the sandy hook shooting and the Orlando shooting were dramatically different. Lanza took the weapons from his mother who owned them legally, but Lanza was unable to have firearms because of his mental illness. Mateen was cleared by the federal background check even though the FBI did some monitoring on him. His radical beliefs caught the eye of the federal government, but someone 's religion can not be used to stip individuals of their rights. Lastly he explains that, “cultural beliefs are significantly related to people’s opinions about gun control, but the strongest, most consistent predictors of people’s gun control preferences are their political beliefs and affiliations,” (Wozniak 2).
The Gun Debate The second Amendment guarantees that “A well-regulated Militia,being necessary to the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” In the article, “The Gun Debate” it states that President Obama thinks the gun laws do not need to be increased. This is what he says, “No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.” I believe that this is true because, murder is already illegal, so there is no point in making more laws for the people that chose not to pay attention to them. In the article it also says that most killers are dealing with mental problems or illnesses. A gun range owner, Scott Ostrosky says, “A gun did not kill those children. A
Starting with District of Columbia V. Heller, where a man by the name of Alan Gura was tasked with convincing the justices that the second amendment guaranteed individuals the right to own guns. The task at hand for him seemed a little too large for him due to the fact that he was not as experienced as his opponent Walter Dellinger. The National Rifle Association believed that his case would end poorly for their organization. They were also dead set on making sure the Supreme Court did not make a ruling on the meaning of the Second Amendment. So they tried with all of their power to stop Gura from pursuing the case, however Gura was determined to convince the court.
The nation stands divided on this issue with both sides taking a firm position on what they believe. There are two sides to the gun control issue, the people that want some weapons banned because they believe that doing so will help stop mass shootings and other firearm related deaths, and the opposition, which believes that the Second Amendment cannot and should not be infringed,
