Today, one of our nation’s most frequently brought up issues is gun control. The United States has been relatively split by opinions regarding the topic. The threat of the misuse of guns has been widely debated by both the government and media for years now, and while many think otherwise, measures must be taken to ensure the safety of citizens and to control the amount of gun violence in our current society. By recent statistics, almost three-fourths of all homicides are associated with gunfire. While guns will most likely not be banned from general ownership because of the Second Amendment and the argument centered around it, stricter laws need to be put in place for the safety of gun owners and others alike.
Effects of Gun Control in America People assume that preventing people from buying and owning firearms reduce crimes, when the fact is gun control is not always good for communities and it does not lower the amount of violent crimes caused by firearms and weapons in society. The right to own firearms and weapons as an individual has been an issue for a while, and it dates back all to the creation of the Constitution. As a Second Amendment right, many Americans believe that citizens should have access to firearms, as well as the right to own firearms. Many other Americans disagree due to the amount of suicides, shootings, and other crimes that occur including firearms. People’s ability to gain firearms and weapons can be a concern to society,
Therefore, they are always ready to scoff at anyone trying to control gun ownership. This makes us wonder why people can be so defensive over something like a gun that is so dangerous and has lead to a lot of deaths in the American society. Gun control is essential in our society today because it will help prevent unnecessary shootings and crime rate Gun control will play a major part in the decrease of the crime and murder rate. Therefore, in my point of view, guns should be totally controlled and regulated by the government. If gun ownership is controlled by the government, only a limited number of people will be allowed to own guns.
The president should already have in mind to keep everyone safe from any harm. Gun use is out of control. In addition, many people are willing to mention the 2nd amendment in the bill of rights, when it comes to gun rights. “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Yes, "The right to bear arm" is needed but now it is overlooked and abused. The government may have a part with the bill it still follows the constitution.
Once again America needs to and should enforce gun control and reduce crimes, violence, suicides, and deaths. Guns have been part of America’s history since the beginning.”Some examples of gun control throughout colonial America included criminalizing the transfer of guns to Catholics, slaves, indentured servants, and Native Americans” - Supreme Court of the United States syllabus. Although many people have guns in their household. Many people want stricter gun laws.They want gun control to secure the safety of the families and friends. If the government decides to pass these laws it would include background checks on everyone who tries purchasing a firearm, who can carry them only certain people will be able to carry them.
Recent events leading to the deaths of many American citizens are likely enough for people to strive for the addition of stricter gun control, although such action may really be meaningless and infringe upon the core rights established by the country’s founders themselves. American citizens are currently armed with privately-owned guns to protect their freedom. If used properly, private gun ownership is beneficial to those who want to feel safer personally owning firearms. This stance portrays the fact that some values of gun control may help such as more extensive background checks, but ultimately it is a futile attempt that will lead to a minimal affect on modern society. In theory, the abolishment of guns would not have an effect on the levels of gun-related violence as gun control laws do not deter crime; the improper use of guns and firearms falling into the hands of the mentally-ill and unstable deters crime.
Chances are that there will be a negative outcome, whether it’s death or simply the loss of property. Incidents like these and many more suggest that some form of gun laws need to stay in place in order to protect those who feel threatened. The first reason why the Second Amendment should not be abolished is because we, as citizens have the right to defend ourselves. Word for word, the Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” (Constitute). That means that citizens have the right to own a firearm to defend from the government and/or criminals.
Currently, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution empowers the U.S. citizens to own guns. Most citizens can buy guns in a shop. The buyer needs to pass a certain requirement to be able to buy guns, like their medical proof of no mental illness or no violence history. However, on top of that, strong regulations are needed for the whole U.S. society. The reason is that gun control can protect the safety of the U.S. citizens.
The Second Amendment of the united states give us the right of self-protection and safety, Society is safer when people carry guns because it gives citizens the ability to protect themselves from threats like criminals, such as violent intruders and attackers, as well as violent shooters. First the people
For your protection? You can protect yourself with other items that won’t kill anyone risking your safety. In all honesty I think that only the US battle force should be allowed gun permits because they know what they’re doing, anyone that hunts should be certified and evaluated by the army. The second amendment is not an unlimited right to own guns. The second amendment states that there should and will be no possession of firearms for anyone with a felony and/or a mental illness.
