Before researching more in depth, I believe bad people do bad things and banning guns will not be effective in stopping it. Australia is a great example of a country banning certain guns and the crime and homicide rate have both
Hours of exhaustive paperwork are required if anyone wants to own even a shotgun or rifle for hunting. The result has been a decline in murders involving firearms”. ( In Other Countries, DEC. 17,
Gun Control: Pros and Cons Guns are the cause of most of America’s violent crime. The topic of gun control has been a main argument for the 2016 presidential election. Republican nominee Donald Trump believes that there should be less if not any restrictions to the second amendment. Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton believes that there should be more restrictions to the second amendment.
Gun control has been a hot topic in the United States for the last several years. With murder counts going up, accidental killings, and mass shootings, it seems that guns have been the enemy lately. With a country divided, it seems we’ll finally come to a conclusion on what we’ll do with guns. Some think we should increase gun control, or even get rid of guns all together. The other side thinks we should leave it how it is, or even reduce gun control.
What these gaps in gun control mean is that purchasers of firearms who commit violent crimes have probably done so legally. Each year more guns are produced and purchased and more individuals go unchecked as they arm themselves for that point in the future where they will decide to use their destructive arms. It is estimated that over 300 million firearms are in possession of private US citizens, that is roughly one firearm per American (Horsley, 2016). This buildup in ownership only increases the probability of more firearms being sold off both legally and illegally to individuals with varying rages of motives, emotional states and situations that can combine into disastrous events such as those at Sandy Hook Elementary, Virginia Tech University
In this context, it is Michael Moore emphasizing that the MPAA were wrong when giving an R rating to his movie “Bowling for Columbine”. Text 3 also uses logos when talking about the rise in mass shootings. He writes “In fact, there have been more mass shootings in the US than days in 2015”. He uses logos to prove that guns really are a big problem in the US and that we have to act to stop the mass
According to the Guardian newspaper (2013), the estimated total number of guns held by civilians in the United States is 270,000,000. Also, gun ownership has increased dramatically in the United States by 88.8 percent per 100 residents, and this is due to many reasons. Firstly, owning a gun by society members shouldn 't be permitted because it damages the society.
This can change America's future by a lot, not in a good way like how caterpillars change into butterflies. Guns should be held by people with experience like police officers or the military and guns should be held by adults at least in their 30’s because, kids and new adults can do crazy things, people can use guns for harmful activities, and a mass shooting occurs because of legal gun selling. First, when kids, young or new adults have guns, they can do crazy things. On the other hand, older people are wiser and lived through life and know what can happen. They have
Gangsters might be gone ,but criminals are still around and they use assault weapons for their preference of mass murdering. Assault weapons should be banned. Assault weapons are far more dangerous than other guns. They shoot nearly a thousand bullets in a few seconds. This makes them more deadly than several handguns or other firearms that are not automatic.
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
Mass shootings have become a commonality for Americans, and we as a country have become used to the high death toll associated with these tragedies. Killers armed to the teeth seek a highly dense hunting ground to rake in as many kills during their bloodbath. Mass shootings are not uniquely an American problem, but they are uniquely common here. Federal bans, public safety campaigns, and state laws have attempted to attack the mass shooting dilemma. As shootings continue, the issue remains a prevalent debated topic in politics and leaving many dumbfounded on what course of action needs to be taken to save us from the plight we’re in.
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.
