If guns didn’t exist the planet will be a better place than it is right know. There’s been many mass murders caused by people for selfish reason or because of mental illness. America should have better gun control. Over the years, many of the kills known to history are done by guns.
The general argument made by Shiha Dalmia in her work, “The Case Against Banning Guns” is that guns should not be banned in the United States. Banning guns is not going to stop people from killing other people. There is no possible way to collect every single gun in the U.S. and even if there was, people have other ways and items to hurt others. When something gets banned, everyone seems like they want to do that thing more. Guns should only be used for appropriate activities like hunting, for example, but there is no one to stop people from harming others.
Our president Barack Obama is all for gun control laws, while everywhere he goes, he’s protected by many guns. He knows that having protection of a firearm makes him safer, yet he wants to take away the rights of responsible gun owners. Another reason why gun control is a bad idea is that police officers can’t be on the scene of a crime the moment it happens (Kerryg). If I was being attacked, I’d feel a lot more comfortable with an assault rifle in my hands than nothing.
A stronger focus on gun control in the United States involving restriction or even an outright ban of guns could serve to help the problem greatly. In 2015, 13,286 people were killed by firearms in the United States, with 26,819 suffering from non-lethal injuries (qtd. in “Guns in the US”). Taking away guns, the means that many urban criminals have to commit their crimes, would be very beneficial to cities. Recent studies found that the most effective way of reducing gun crime is to lower the amount of guns available in circulation.
The government must govern, lead, and protect the people of the United States not limit us in ways that overall hurt the population. The government needs to reevaluate the laws that protect our country to the end. Even if they try to ban certain criteria of guns people will always find a way around the
Admittedly, it is true that without people owning guns, criminals can’t obtain a gun by stealing it. However, if you do have a gun you won’t use it for anything wrong, but anyone who steals our gun can. In conclusion, it might be true that it’s will be impossible for a criminal to steal a gun with so few people owning one, it's important to focus on that it's not
A few states have decided that gun control needs to be tightened and they found something surprising. Washington D.C. banned handguns and the murder rate rose seventy three percent other states that have done this saw similar results (Gun Control-Just Facts). People argue that by limiting access to weapons and taking away the right to own firearms crime will go down. In places where that has been done it has not worked and most criminals state that they stole or had a family member supply them with their firearm (Gun Control-Procon.org). Crime is a part of our society that we are not going to get rid of but we can lessen the affects of it if we have more people who carry and are properly trained to use a gun.
Guns control is not strict enough these days. The U.S government does not put down laws strict enough to deal with people purchasing guns without having a license. Some people who are aggressive and have health issues should not be allowed to have guns because they might go out and shoot people in anger. " No legitimate study in the U.S has ever shown that gun control has any positive Impact on crime"?
Increased Gun Control While the Obama Administration is attempting to put restrictions on and do away with some specific guns, criminals are finding them on the black market. Putting restrictions on gun ownership violates the 2nd Amendment right which is, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, and the right to self defense. The key to keep our nation safe is not having armed citizens but experienced and informed citizens. We need to focus on the values of our people, the part media plays in the violence and the huge lack of respect for our law enforcement.
In 2014, with the population up from about 18 million to 23 million, Australia has 238 murders, of which 35 were with guns” (Kaye and Cole). If other countries have already made tighter gun restrictions and they are successful, why wouldn’t we take this data and make our own gun laws. Guns kill hundreds of thousands of people every year. Obviously, this number is way too high, and to decrease this statistic, change needs to occur.
As handguns become more accessible to a larger variety of persons within a limited area the rates will rise due to availability (Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, 2013). Overall guns on campuses will result in the cons heavily outweighing the pros. There are more efficient ways to keep students safe than allowing concealed handguns on college campuses. Allowing firearms will escalate sparse occurrences of school shootings. Suicidal deaths among the student population will also increase as more than half of all college students already consider suicide, the presence of a firearm will only increase the risk more (Neuberger, Joan and Spiro, Ellen, 2015).
Studies done after the sandy hook shooting have found that, “ Contrary to pro-gun lobby claims, research into prevention of gun violence has shown that reasonable reforms could reduce the excessively high rates of firearm deaths in the US while preserving access firearms, possession is not illegal for people proposed do not infringe on law abiding citizens ',” (Vittes 6). This has two main point to it, the first and most clearly is that it is irrelevant on what one 's believes might be, reasonable gun control will save Americans lives. The more subtle meaning behind this study was that gun lobby 's push the agenda that their companies are protected by right. The gun manufacturing business is no small group of occupations. They receive money by having customers purchases firearms, which they donate to political parties to pass different legislation.
