The general argument made by Paul Waldman in his work, “The Case For Banning Guns,” is that gun control should be put into effect and certain firearms should be banned. More specifically, Waldman argues that abandoning these guns could decrease mass shootings and make America a much safer environment. He writes, “Yes, I’d like to ban guns. Almost all of them, at least the ones in private hands.” In this passage, Paul is suggesting that the United States would be much better off abandoning these weapons that leave communities with so much blood and gore. He believes private gun ownership should be rare and strictly regulated, just like the gun laws in Europe and Asia.
The topic of gun control is becoming a bigger problem everyday in this world, and some people say we should take away all the guns and then we will be safe. Some people are also saying no, we need to hunt or we should be able to protect ourselves from intruders and such. The way guns have been getting distributed around the world, it is almost impossible to collect all the guns in the world. By everyone having a gun to protect themselves I fell will almost be as dangerous as a person who knows how to use a gun have a gun. There are so many different reasons why people want guns in this world.
You don’t want your firearm to not be able to be used to its maximum strength at a time if someone was to try to harm you, you would want it to be able to be used at its maximum strength to be able to protect you from harm. I understand that if everybody had a firearm it would raise the murder rate tremendously, but one must admit should be a little harder to get a gun, just cause you don’t have a criminal background does not mean you are not capable of doing the same actions a criminal. The gun control law should be made to where if you wanted to purchase a firearm, that you
people always thinking if they have a gun, they can protect themselves. However, that is totally wrong. “The personal protection angle, that people own guns for self-defense, is impractical and glamorized. Very few gun-owning individuals have the experience, training, and temperament hard to successfully defend themselves or others in an emergency situation.” Because many people don't know how to shot the gun, it is easy to hurt themselves or others, so no guns are easier to protect themselves. “Guns are not safe.
Firearms is one of America’s most controversial topics, one side argues that guns should be outlawed and only permitted to those in association with the government, while the other side replies that guns should be buyable to law abiding citizens and should not be outlawed. I myself fall on the side that claims why guns should not be outlawed, and why we should be able to possess firearms if we do our duties as a citizen. In the constitution under amendment II, it states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, what this means is that no one should be able to take away our rights to keep and use firearms. But there are still people who think that guns are too dangerous and lead to an excessive amount of casualties, and instead would like to keep guns off the streets.. To that I respond with the phrase that guns don 't kill
Why guns should be legal The NRA has a saying that goes “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” This quote is very powerful because if guns were taken away, then good people wouldn’t be able to stop bad people with guns. Guns are not the ones that are pulling the trigger, it’s the people who are holding them. Furthermore, guns were created in the fourteenth century and they were around a full four centuries before there was ever a school shooting. Even more, the country of Switzerland requires its citizens to own firearms and they have the lowest homicide level in the entire world. Two leaders, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong, took the guns away from their people; they both ended up killing twenty million people.
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. When a person purchases a gun at a store they have to register that gun in their name, unless they buy a used one from someone else. If guns are banned the government will take innocent civilian guns away, because they have them registered in their names.
Those who do not wish to create more violence want to take guns away. They believe that without guns the amount of violence would greatly decrease. This has been shown to work in Australia, after their biggest mass shooting they put more restrictions on guns and saw great results (say fortune.com),The same can be seen in Japan.“If you want to buy a gun in Japan you need patience and determination. You have to attend an all-day class, take a written exam and pass a shooting-range test with a mark of at least 95%,” say BBC news. We should raise gun restrictions rather than adding more guns because lives are being lost, guns only bring harm, and because we have seen the success of other nations who have raised restrictions.
Many say that having fewer guns would lead to fewer suicides and accidental guns deaths. However, neither of those would be an issue with proper parenting and being taught respect for guns at an early age. Anti gun activists also say that an everyday civilian should not be able to own military grade weapons. But who is to say what we can and cannot own as Americans? There is much to be said from the people that are anti gun and for their reasoning, but at the end of the day it still relies on the person behind the gun and how they were
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. Many people oppose or agree for many reasons dealing with the Second with what Gun Control is. Although most people can say they understand what gun control actually is, some people can not. Gun control is an effort to strengthen laws to restrict firearms (Zimring 440). These laws aim to reduce the criminal use of guns (Zimring 440).
