Kenji Morizono Professor Martin Argumentative Essay 11/15/15 Gun Laws: Should they be stricter? The world should not spend anymore time following the fallacy that many people have. where they, instead of providing deterrents for people who want to commit a crime with a firearm. They put restrictions, on citizens who want a gun and leave them vulnerable to criminals who can, and most likely will, procure firearms from other sources.
This delay could cause lives and too much trouble in our country. Stricter gun laws are needed in our free country to prevent the recurrent mass shootings and crimes, this will also impact the time it takes to obtain a gun, but everyday citizens are stopping our government from doing anything because of the interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. Guns do kill
Why Americans Need Guns The right to bear arms helps protect ourselves and our families. It is our constitutional right to bear arms and I believe it should not be taken away. Some people think if we did not have guns there would be less crime in the United States, but that is not true.
I agree with you Dondra, I support the banning these assault weapons, only for military use. I think about younger children who can get to these guns and parents don?t store them properly in the household. Not so much of the person getting permitted to buy the gun I blame the parents as well. There are so many issues dealing with gun control it is ridiculous. The government, gun seller, buy and people getting gun training.
People also “...support the rights of hunters, sport shooters, and recreational gunmen.” (openreader.org).Criminals are already breaking the law, so adding more won 't deter them. “Criminals will get hold of guns – indeed, by definition, if guns are outlawed, one becomes a criminal just by acquiring one – and leave non-criminals more vulnerable than ever.” (bigthink.com). Gun control laws do not help deter, and only slightly inconvenience them.
A few states have decided that gun control needs to be tightened and they found something surprising. Washington D.C. banned handguns and the murder rate rose seventy three percent other states that have done this saw similar results (Gun Control-Just Facts). People argue that by limiting access to weapons and taking away the right to own firearms crime will go down. In places where that has been done it has not worked and most criminals state that they stole or had a family member supply them with their firearm (Gun Control-Procon.org). Crime is a part of our society that we are not going to get rid of but we can lessen the affects of it if we have more people who carry and are properly trained to use a gun.
In order to protect children and their family members, they should be taught the proper way on how to shoot guns. Gun safety needs to be taught to children to promote more respect for firearms while improving education and decreasing gun violence (Foley). Many accidental shootings happened in America in the past two or three years. One example is, a three year old accidentally reach into his pregnant mother’s purse and took out her pistol and shot his mom and dad. Now the child has to live with all that for the rest of his life knowing he shot his mom and dad, in 2015 toddlers in the United State accidently shot one person per week.
Anybody of age can go to a gun show or online to purchase any firearm. 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.
Black on black crime has been a problem since the early 70’s but was not as bad as it is today. Black on black crime has been a big deal because young people are dying everyday because somebody the same age has a gun not to protect but to kill another person because they might not be as good as them or they did something to them that was wrong so they seek revenge on that person. Why can’t we as young people set a good example for our kids and their generation. Why is the police not
No more people need to get shot, we need to fix loopholes but protect the 2nd amendment at the same time. But some people think that in order for no more people to get hurt, the public should be stripped completely of their right to bear arms. And even though that would bring down shooting rates by a lot, that would anger the side of people that strongly believe that we should be able to own guns. So what we should do is make a compromise that allows the people to own guns, but make background checks much stronger. Doing this would please both the people that believe that we should completely abolish the right to bear arms, and the people that strongly believe the public should have the right to own guns.
