Staying one step ahead of its people and shifting towards better things that will benefit their countries. The United States 25 killing is nothing compared to the “36,000 Americans who were victims of firearm-related deaths in 2015 alone”. If these numbers are scary then imagine what they look like today with the increased mass shootings, and easy access to such weapons. If this isn’t waking America up and making them aware that things must change then nothing
Overall comments Recently there have been many debates about gun control, this is because of the rise of gun violence in the US. Many Conservatives and Republicans think that guns are their right, and it is their second amendment to bear arms in order to protect themselves, claiming it is unpatriotic to change it. However, according to Scholastic, the constitution has been amended 27 times since it was written. Some of these people think the solution to gun violence is to arm teachers and fight fire with fire.
This shows the court could waste a lot of money funding gun classes when they could be funding something more important like schools or homes for homeless people. Along with this fact why should mentally unstable citizens own a gun in the first place. Mentally unstable people should not have the right to own a firearm of any kind. With gun control it could lower the rate of suicide with firearms. According to the
The present gun laws in America are not enough to keep people from dying. Other countries, like Switzerland, have restrictive gun laws and their gun violence rates are immensely lower. The American government needs to learn from them. Isn’t all the mass shooting and gun violence enough to show the government how much America needs more restrictive gun laws? Americans need to help make a change to keep more innocent people from dying.
Regulating guns will not stop all of the killings that are occurring in America, and there are better ways to cease the killings than regulating guns. Body Paragraph One: Topic Sentence: Regulating mental health will be more effective in ceasing killings with guns than regulating guns. In an analysis provided, 22 percent of the perpetrators of 235 mass killing, could be considered mentally ill, many of which were carried out with firearms (Qui). Almost 25% of mass shooting killers are being considered mentally ill
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). Gun control decisions
In recent years there has been a big debate when it comes to the topic of gun safety. This issue isn’t just a problem in the Illinois or the U.S. but in many different places around the world. The main arguments revolve around the best way to reduce the high number of gun violence and accidental injuries caused by guns in the United States. The main issue I will discuss is not just gun safety, but more specifically a better solution to keeping kids more safe from guns. The big question people have the most opinions about is, should kids be taught gun safety at a young age, and will that help reduce the number of injuries and deaths in children due to playing with firearms.(ProQuest Staff)
Guns, being a part of our history for so many years have not always been such a problem. There are many adults today that would agree with that statement. Back when these adults were younger and in high school, there would be no problem with them having a gun in their car while they were at school. They would just have it in their car or on a gun rack and there were no problems. Today, it’s against the rules to speak your opinion sometimes.
“There have been fewer than 20 terror-related deaths on American soil since 9/11 and about 364,000 deaths caused by privately owned firearms.” (Burnett, 2015) Using a second amendment is part of an old rule. We have to start changing this. Nowadays, the police are widely spread, which means people are quite safe and there is no need for keeping guns.
School safety is an ongoing debate in America and the question of, are schools safe, will never go away but, what could be done to make it a less prominent or less talked about question. Some say that we need more law enforcement in schools, some say we should get rid of guns, and others may say that we should simply make it harder for the wrong kind of people to get guns. I feel that we should have to take a class (much like a hunting or drivers license) and a test annually in order to own guns. Many people would like a world where guns are completely banned or outlawed.
Future Legislation Our nation has suffered too much at the hands of dangerous people who use guns to commit horrific acts of violence. As President Obama said following the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, “We won’t be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. “Most gun owners are responsible and law-abiding, and they use their guns safely. But to better protect our children and our communities from tragic mass shootings like those in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, and Tucson, there are common-sense steps we can take right now.
Hi, Bobbi I enjoyed reading your post it was very informative. Unfortunately, unintentional shootings are committed by children and teenagers too often. Safety regulation keeps children from accessing legal firearms. The law has been set to ensure the safety of children, By storing ammunition and firearms separately in a locked cabinet, keeping guns unloaded, and ensuring that both are safely out of reach from children. Nearly all firearm accidents in the home can be prevented when gun are stored properly (Kumar 2014).
The USA needs tighter gun laws The United States just last year had 385 mass shooting (that’s defined as a shooting where 4 or more are injured or killed), that’s more mass shootings then there are days in a year. Still, Americans cling on to the idea that an ordinary citizen needs access to a military grade assault rifle, whose sole purpose is to be efficient at killing people. What’s even more frightening is the fact that America’s President, newly into office has made his stance on gun control quite clear by saying “I am against gun control”. In an age of mass education and with the ability to instantaneously communicate, it is time that America, once the centre of change, moves with the times and begins changing laws that are based around
