Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger. These accusations are not true and it’s all based on the place and time. In conclusion, assault weapons should not be banned. Previous bans have not been successful,
Gun Control: Assault Weapons Should be Banned in America In the past decade there have been many mass shootings which sparked a nationwide debate on the ban on assault weapons. Assault weapons are Semiautomatic weapons that are usually used in the military due to their advanced features. The difference between a Semiautomatic weapon and a regular pistol is that semiautomatic guns reload automatically and can fire consistently (Assault Weapons). Majority of Americans argue that Assault Weapons should be banned nationwide because of the amount of mass shootings caused by Assault weapons. The public does not need a military level weapon for protection.
It does not take long for a debate to arise after a school shooting to argue which side is to blame. However, the debate has done nothing but made it worse for the trend of school shootings as it typically results in nothing. With two opposing sides, they barely consider any reasonable solutions since they are more focused on worrying if the gun or the shooter is to blame for the death of hundreds of people. In an article written by the Gallups’ Lida Saad concluded, “According to two recent Gallup polls, from 2011 and 2013, more people believe that mass shootings result from a failure of the mental-health system than from easy access to guns.” Gun advocates are in favor of this reasoning because they believe that the system is failing to identify mental health patients in regards to gun violence. However, in the book, Gun Violence and Mental Illness, published by the American Psychiatric Association they found, “Overall, mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent 1 percent of all gun homicides each year.” State governments have already imposed bills that restrict any mental health patient to purchase a gun.
Equipping teachers with guns, who are little more than civilians, is absurd. This would not help prevent the type of deadly mass shooting we 've been seeing lately. All that would do is increase the possibility of innocent people getting caught in the crossfire. Instead of training for how to use guns teachers should be taught self defense and how to use items around them as weapons. It would also help if every teacher learned self defense and not just a
However, a lot of individuals think teachers should not have guns because it puts students in more danger, it's unnecessary and the teacher could also have mental health issues. For example a teacher, named Randal Davidson (53) shot a gun at Dalton high school in Georgia, critics went on how “Everybody is already tense about the debate around guns in school because of the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, two weeks ago” This infers that teachers shouldn't have guns. In
The reason why murders are brought down by that percent,is because crime is deterred by concealed handguns because most of the time a murderer would use a knife, a pipe, a hammer, or even their own car. “Rapes can be brought down by 5%” (Should adults have…) as well. The reason why, is because a rapist is going to have a hard time trying to rape someone, that means they’re going to be careful with who they pick and 9 times out of 10 when someone draws their gun, the rapist is going to get shot. “From 1977 to 1992”, nearly 120,000
The average person does not need a semi-automatic rifle to defend themselves. As our guns have changed, our laws regarding who can carry and what sort of gun they can carry should change as well. In Florida there was a shooting at Majority Douglas High School. The laws in Florida did nothing to protect the students and faculty from this tragedy. Therefore, improved gun control laws could have prevented this from occurring.
This maddest bring’s a lot of pain to families that have lost loved ones to gun violence. We as people are not perfect but killing somebody is not the way in life to make peace with our enemy. Let us take time as people to stop killing and make peace because when judgement day comes a lot of people that have killed somebody and not ask for forgiveness will go to hell. Black on black crime has been a problem since the early 70’s but was not as bad as it is today. Black on black crime has been a big deal because young people are dying everyday because somebody the same age has a gun not to protect but to kill another person because they might not be as good as them or they did something to them that was wrong so they seek revenge on that person.
Many student leaders have risen from this tragic event such as emma gonzalez in the movemoent towards gun reform. Sadly enough, only after this tragic event occured did people stand up and deal with the problem of gun violence.The AR-15 and similar assault style rifles should be banned from the public and mental health evalluations should rregulaly be implemented. Many political leaders arise and argue that people such as emma gonazalez should not be able to propse or argue for gun laws with little knowledge of the system and openly because of their young age, but as Noah Trevor put it, If kids are old enough to be shot they’re old enough to have an opinion about being shot. Gun violence is growing and without these regulations and differences put aside so will the
If gun control were to be stricter, there still wouldn't be any control over a persons decisions, unless firearms would be completly out of reach for citizens. Gun control laws should be reinforced and practiced in all states regardless of how many shootings take place. Furthermore, suicide rates have increased, and in general there is no actual control over suicide with gun
While on the other hand, there are many more articles that go along with Adam Winkler 's side for the negative views of having a gun in a school area. Gun violence in college and universities does not happen as often as killings in a home or on the street happen on a daily. Guns in a learning environment wouldn 't help out as much as if there were none. In countless articles and many places on the media scene, it is out there that having a gun is not as safe as having no guns. The are many negative views for those who believe in no guns.
Today many people are against gun ownership because they have never needed to use them or can afford body guards so that they won’t need to own guns themselves. Many claim that gun violence is on the rise and is the next plague on American society, while this couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are about two hundred million gun owners in this country and only a tiny fraction of gun owners commit crimes. Gun violence is only a major issue on television because of all the
