Furthermore, anger and sickness are just some of the many reasons guns should be banned from citizens. If someone has a gun and gets very upset, they may use it and regret it later. According to Harvard University, “Nearly one in 10 U.S. adults have both a history of impulsive anger and access to a firearm…” It shows that the majority of people who use guns to kill one another are either sick or in anger. The Connecticut school shooting is one example of using guns in anger. Adam Lanza shot 20 children and 6 adults that day because he suffered from a mental illness.
Death of a loved one is always a cause for mourning. However, when a baby dies, there is a sadness that goes beyond normal grief. We are programmed to expect that the old outlive the young. When a person who has lived a full life passes away, there is a sense that everything is as it should be. When a baby passes, who has not even has the chance to experience life, his death seems meaningless.
The availability of guns have been seen to increase the risk of lethal violence and endangering numerous of lives, making this environment unsafe. And I would like to do anything to face and challenge this problem in our society
They believe that after the traumatic event that caused them the have this pain that something must be done to ban all firearms regardless of who uses them. Everyone fall on this spectrum and that is the issue no one can be one hundred percent right meaning someone will be unhappy with the result. From constitution being first ratified to today the idea of gun control has still existed. Gun control is the regulation of guns through their purchasing, owning, and use. As such starting with the second amendment of the United States constitution which says, “A well regulated Militia, […and] the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Suddenly, the evidence overwhelmed me: there was no longer any reason to live, any reason to fight.” (Wiesel, 99) Furthermore, he thought of his father as his only reason to keep persevering. At that moment, Elie lost his only reason to continue fighting what was invincible over all, death. Without his father’s love and support, Elie becomes more in danger of death. When fighting death, the most significant necessity is to have
Allowing children to be exposed to this type of scenery caused trauma most people can not recover from, especially at a young age. For instance, in an elementary school in 2012 a shooting occurred, ¨On December 14, 2012….20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children aged 6 and 7, at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, before killing himself¨ (Should the Government Restrict Access to Assault Weapons?). Twenty Young students were killed and the rest traumatized due to the fact that this man could get his hands on military- grade weapons. Furthermore, joyous events and family outings are turned into fears and doubts of leaving home when one can obtain ammunition as such. In Colorado, while families were watching a movie, twelve were killed and
- 33,000 people in the United States died from gunshot injuries and more than 84,000 survived with such injuries” (Malina, Morrissey, Campion, Hamel, Drazen, Paragraph 3, Page 1) To paraphrase, the evidence states that the current checks on the shooter did not make his purchase of a gun unavailable. In a better check, he would not have been able to obtain a gun from dealers. Due to guns, more than thousands of innocent citizens were killed and over and almost a hundred thousand more were injured due to guns in one year. That means that thousands of people die and are wounded just because of guns. This is very unusual, as guns in America are used to protect people, but these guns are more commonly used to kill other people.
I believe that to be ineffective because the only people who would listen to that law are they people who are using their firearms properly. So you would still have people who don’t obey gun laws trying to kill people with their guns. The only way to fix this problem is make purchasing a gun more difficult.
