Benefits of Gun Control There are many reasons why Gun Control should be in existence. One of the biggest reasons for passing gun control laws is that generally, the most violent crimes are committed with guns, mainly assault weapon style guns, therefore it is a good idea to attempt to limit firearms that are not needed in civilian lives. Individuals who have been bullied in the past, have issues with co-workers, as well as people who are not in the right state of mind, etc. may be less likely or able to obtain a weapon to inflict a massive amount of damage on another person or institution. Many people argue that since guns are legalized to begin with, there is an easier chance of a gun falling into the wrong hands and being used for the wrong
Others believe that guns are the issue to violence and gun laws need to be more strict than what they are now. Guns have played a big part of hunting and safety for us as a country. Having said that, guns are involved in a lot of murders and tragedies. The way I look at each of the sides. They both have the same intentions.
Several Americans think if we get rid of our second amendment there will be less shooting’s and deaths, but that is not true. Some cities in the United States already have strict gun laws, and it’s a fact that those cities have the highest assault and murder rates. If that happens across the whole country imagine all of the crime and shootings we will have. Innocent people will not have the right to protect themselves. Yes, I believe that there should be background checks to purchase a gun, but background checks will not always keep someone from getting a gun.
Today’s politicians have it all wrong when it comes to the gun control battle, and the fight to ban gun access across America. America as a country owns more firearms than any other country in the world. Currently people in the United States feel that their second amendment rights do not hold the weight that they used to . Washington believes the violence comes from the guns; however, it takes a human being to pull the trigger. That is the same as saying the car killed the man and not the drunk driver inside.
The United States constitution states by the 2nd amendment, that all men have the right to bear firearms in order to protect themselves. The gun policy in the US has been widely discussed in broad manners, and after hearing so much from different media outlets, I believe that I am able to make a stand on where I lean towards on this complex subject I do not think fondly of the USA’s gun policy, it has never worked and the whole concept of allowing firearms in a society is a very bad idea. The gun policy fails in every way, and a major problem is that it can be abused by anyone. Without much hesitation, a person can purchase a firearm, which of course is very dangerous. It’s impossible to assess whether or not that person would use the weapon instantly, however, it only takes one bad day, and suddenly that gun could potentially harm countless innocents.
I’m against gun control because I like shooting guns. I wish gun owners weren 't limited to their selection. Because there is a law called 2nd amendment that says that you have the right to bear arms. There are a lot of people that live in america and are scared of guns and don 't like it, I think part of the reason is because the image people bring to when thought of guns, protection and hunting should be the only reason why a gun should be fired. In the United States of America, there is something called second amendment , it gives you the right to own a gun and protect and arm yourself if things went south they would have a chance.
Gun control has been a big factor in today’s society, now days it is often to see people getting their lives taken from them due to guns. Having researched one side of the issue, that gun violence had increased over the last year. Having researched the other side of the issue, more gun owners are feeling their rights are being taken little by little. There is no question this is a complicated issue that will require a complicated answer. Due to the black market on guns, anyone can acquire one without a background check.
(hardy) (cornell) The gun control people of the United States come in every size, color and shape. It is constantly being said that violent crimes need to stop now! They are focused on taking the guns from the criminals and stop all the random acts of violence happening on our streets and small towns. I don’t think all these gun control citizens understand the true meaning of a criminals mind and how it works. I think a criminal is a criminal whether they have a gun or not.
Guns are a cost-benefit ratio along with everything else in this world. Guns don’t fire by themselves, so why do we need to outlaw guns when the gun doesn’t pull its own trigger? Instead, we need to work with the people using them. Gun laws are to keep people that aren’t supposed to have guns from getting guns and they are also in place to protect the people who have guns and give them the right to bear arms. Studies show that gun ownership has increased incredibly while at the same time crime has decreased to historic lows The second amendment says people have the right to bear arms and they can’t be taken away.
America has the right to bear arms and to keep her gun 's, but something needs to be changed when it comes to gun laws. Guns are not the problem, it 's the gun laws that are the issue. Gun laws are weak, there has been more shootings than ever before. And there 's no unity to create a solution. We begin with how most gun control arguments begin with.
On the other side, there are theories that extremely strict legislation and even outlawing firearms completely would be the most effective solution. I disagree with this theory because it would be foolish to take away American citizens main form of protection. When most criminals possess firearms illegally in the first place, then the only ones that are being harmed are the innocent, or those whose intentions are self protection. Also, it is proven that every country who has completely banned firearms has seen an increase
Most gun owners have guns as protection for themselves and for their families. One of the most prominent arguments for to pro gun ownership side is that guns are protection from a seemingly increasingly violent world. Also “...having guns gives [people] and least a fighting chance in the event of a burglar or home invader manages to get in.”(safewise.com). The second amendment gives people the right to own and use guns and is “...an undeniable personal freedom guaranteed by the constitution.”(openreader.org). 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.
An article in the Patriot Talon states that the right-to-carry gun laws have been “linked to an increase in violent crime.” Now this shouldn’t be a surprise; the more cars you have on the street, the more likely there is to be an accident. The same goes for guns. However, unlike driving, carrying a gun is not a necessity and gun extremists in America don’t believe this to be true. An opinion article in The Daily Beast shows that not everyone thinks open carry is a bad thing. CJ Grisham, the writer of this article, states that open carry is a good thing in America.
