GUN CONTROL Gun control will always be a very significant issue in United States as well as any country that has rules allowing citizens to bare arms. There are those who believe that Americans should not possess guns at all—not one single gun of any kind what so ever. They think the nation would be better without them. All guns have the prospective to be dangerous and should be controlled and handled with much care and cautiousness. Firearms have been part of American life for as long as people can recall.
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
Gun Control Lately people have been using guns in a negative way and causing a bad effect on the world. People have been using guns inapropriatly and have been performing mass killings. If guns are being used by people then the people using them should know how to use them correctly, or not being a crazy lunatic. When I was 12 I was playing with a pistol and accidentally shot it, I wasn’t hurt and no one else was hurt but somebody could have been injured badly. Gun laws are the cause to a lot of the violent crimes in the united states and laws need to be changed so people can’t purchase guns as easily that way we aren’t in as much trouble.
Guns have been the weapon of decision for probably the most severe massacres on American soil. Since early history, firearms have been utilized mainly for militia and defense purposes. However, the development of new gun technology has made guns more accessible and deadly. In spite of the fact that the second amendment gives the right to bear, firearms should be controlled and checked by the government since weapons have contributed to a lot of killings in America and will increase crime rates.
“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.
“Gun control (or firearms regulation) is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians. ’’(Wikipedia, gun control). There are few countries that have law about gun policy categorised as permissive with most countries have a restrictive firearm legislation , (www.gunpolicy.org) Gun violence in the USA is an example of huge international crisis that turn to higher number of deaths and injuries yearly (National Research Council, 2004). In 2013, record shows that 73,505 nonfatal firearm injuries and 33,636 deaths because of injury by firearms or a 10.6 deaths per 100,000 USA civilians. (The National Academies Press, 2013).
Guns have dramatically changed peoples lives for the better. Without guns people would have nothing to defend themselves against criminals; especially the police, they wouldn’t be able to fight certain crimes without guns. Despite the necessity, many other people believe guns should not be used at all in society. Guns can be used for self defense,reduce crime, and relieve your stress.
The sound of a gun shooting is probably the worst and most terrifying sound that people want to hear. However, nowadays people in the United States are attacking by this sound more often due to the lack of gun control. The function of the guns is very limited. They are meant to be used as weapons in military operations such as defending their own countries. As we all know citizens in U.S. have the right to possess guns that should be used as one of the self-defending tools.
The thought of a society without a militia is sickening with terrorists being able to attack any helpless citizen. Sure, the alternative weapons are useful, yet they don 't have any range upon the enemy and some people can not acquire the physical force or tactical skill needed to fortify. Gun control makes it so only the fittest of the fittest survive, which means even more deaths when terrorists attack. To add, gun laws do not prove any use. Even though gun laws prevent deaths, they infringe so many rights in the immutable Bill of Rights, which is one of the foundations of the great United States.
The thing that people don 't understand is that, yes gun owners want to take advantage of this open carry law, but most people that have their license will still conceal their weapons as they don 't want the attention. Most say that when the heat, calms down on all the law changing that they might be more comfortable with open carrying so it’s more of a usual thing to be around. Now gun carriers know all the risk of having their guns visible. Most of the instructors that teach the classes tell them that showing your gun can possibly make you the first target in a situation. Having an open carry they know that it could backfire on them.
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.
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).
America is one of the most unique and prominent countries in the world, primarily because of it powerful and efficient legal system. With that being said, it is that efficient legal system that provides Americans with the freedoms that they have known and grown accustom to. However, if one of those freedoms were to be stripped from the American people, one would assume that America as we know it, would be drastically changed forever. Yet, if American’s had to give up one of their constitutional rights, it would be safe to assume the right to bear arms would probably result in the least amount of change in American society while simultaneously providing a new level of protection to the American people.
