Gun control laws are not the thing that can change or prevent gun violence or death. Instead, we could be doing so much more than that to try and protect the people or our fellow countrymen. Whether the government should ban guns or not seems like a big issue to everyone. Our current President Donald Trump response on mass shootings was that he wanted to revive a bill mandating universal background checks for gun buyers, chiding them for being frightened of the National Rifle Association, and saying that, in some situations, he was in favor of taking people’s guns away first, and asking questions
This would save thousands of lives each year and lower the overall crime rate within the country, preventing murders, suicides, and mass shootings. There is a significant relationship between the amount of guns people own and the crime rates of a particular year. Since the 1960s, gun ownership has declined in the US. Which has caused the firearm homicides to drop also.The correlation of these two aspects, creates a compelling result that should raise awareness to the fact of the matter. Gun laws in the United States should be more contained.
Also, high capacity magazines should be reduced because they increase the number of murder and injury rates. According to an investigation, at least 50% of high capacity magazines are used in 62 mass shootings between 1982 and 2012 (procon 2). If there is a gun at home it could be easily be stolen, 1.4 million guns are stolen from US homes between 2005 and 2010 (“Right to Bear Arms” 2). Another way to prevent gun violence is to have background check and ban on assault weapons. 83% of all adults surveyed approve of background checks according to a Pew Research survey.
Topic: Ownership of Guns for non-professional reasons should be illegal in the United States General Purpose: To argue. Specific Purpose: The specific purpose of this speech is to argue for outlawing private gun ownership in the United States. Central Idea/Thesis Statement: Private ownership of guns in the United States should be illegal. Various specific reasons are presented to support this statement: (1) Banning private ownership of firearms, and, their distribution, would save a large number of lives that are lost as the result of gun violence. (2) Banning the private ownership of guns would also save lives that are lost due to successful suicide attempts with firearms.
What is gun control? Gun control is the description that protesters and socialist groups have put on the topic of making laws about guns. Some people want to ban guns, so they are illegal and not the problem. Others want to put limits on what type of guns the people can buy. Then there are the people that want to put a restriction on the amount of some guns sold.
So therefor people believe banning guns will solve the problem of school shootings. Yes the shootings are awful but there are many other solution to stop school shootings like having more officers and locking the doors 24/7. The United states has had a lot of homi cides and yes many of them have been done with guns but that doesn't mean all of them were done with guns. There was around 11,500 homicides done with guns in 2006 and the rates are all over the place nowadays but out of the millions of people in this world that is not that many of people yes it's really say that they had to die like that but there is really not that many people. Most people are either all about banning guns or dont want them banned but everyone has their own opinions and can express them in their own
There is an argument that the government may control the number of people can legally posses a gun and the time the people could posses a gun more strictly. For example, the person who want to posses a gun should have healthy mental state and no criminal record. In order to make sure the citizens have the sense of security, the government may also should know the things that the guns used for. This thesis will be discussed in three aspect: Stricter gun control policy could help to reduce suicide rates. Stricter gun control policy may reduce violence and crime.
So because of this more gun laws should be enforced because more gun control laws would reduce gun deaths, guns are rarely used in self-defense and hunters and civilians should not own military-grade firearms and accessories. First, increased enforcement of gun control laws would reduce gun deaths such as murders and suicides. According to the Lancet, there have been 464,033 total gun deaths between 1999 and 2013, (270,237 suicides, 174,773 homicides, and 9,983 unintentional deaths.) These gun death totals have increased in the last four years, and many are suicides. More gun control laws could make it so anyone couldn 't own a gun without special permission and special rules.
If the stimulation to that kind of violence is take away then less fights with these lethal weapons would take place. Less fights would mean less people would get hurt and reduce death which in return would make people more safer than they would be now. Though it feels that we should implement these laws some people may disagree. They may argue that evidence shows that the U.S is only ranked 28 in international homicide rate and some of those homicides might not have used guns. It does seem like fair argument but that doesn’t mean that these homicides aren 't killing people.
Advertising should also be banned so as not to influence the youth to start smoking. The ban was not something new because there were international precedents. Countries like France, Finland and Norway had already implemented similar bans. The government had the right to intervene as tobacco was the most dangerous consumer product known, which killed when used as the makers intended. Therefore, from an ethical standpoint, the government had to discourage the habit, as it was responsible for the welfare of its citizens.
