In conclusion we should have better gun control. There are roughly 32,000 gun deaths per year in the United States. That’s a big number of deaths. There should be a law were every gun how has ever been checked out or bought to have a number and if stole they have to report about just in case someone is trying to use it for the something bad. For the better and the sake of our planet we should have better gun control considering it will save a lot of lives.
Since the LA shooting, many American's have cried, many Americans have prayed for the victims, but not many Americans realized what the causation of this and other 300 mass shootings is. People frequently ask themselves whether guns are really beneficial, and how are people able to buy so many guns at once. According to James Q Wilson, Gun Controls laws are vague and ineffective but the reason for this is fairly simple. I blame America ineffectiveness on America's second amendment. This law empowers any American citizen to possess a firearm thus, people who have psychological deficiencies can buy a gun as easy as you.
Creating stronger gun control laws will cause much more harm to the American people than it will good. Gun restrictions are a huge debate in today’s society. It is constantly said that if we had more gun restrictions, then America’s violence and crime rates would go down. When examining statistics between cities with very strict gun laws compared to those whose restrictions are lax, there is a noticeably higher rate of crime found within the cities whose gun restrictions are tighter. In 2012 the CRS released a report showing that the number of privately owned guns has gone up by 56% since 1994; coincidentally gun related homicides have gone down by 49% as well.
Gun Rights in the United States The National Rifle Association is working day after day to make the world with guns in it a safer place. However, many People feel that day will never come. They are working on taking guns away from Americans altogether.
“There’s also the slippery slope argument. It preys on people’s fears that the government will turn into a dictatorship or completely ban guns… The Founders of our country wanted the people to be able to protect themselves from over powerful governments.” - Is it time to pass tough gun control laws? By McClathy Tribune.
While a majority of the statistics reported in the article are horrific, another one sticks out to the reader: “Americans overall are ‘25 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than people in other developed countries’”. In terms of gun violence alone, the United States is 25 times more dangerous than other developed countries. Would you like to be 25 times more likely to be shot and killed? Anyone with a brain would not. The American identity represents a culture revolving around not just guns, but violence in general, and so
In our country we tend to blame our mass shootings and homicides on guns, but without a human behind it guns are harmless. Instead of banning these firearms all together, which may only cause an uprising in illegally owning guns, why don’t we strengthen our gun control laws? By banning people the right to carry and own a gun, we are restricting them of their basic rights. If we increase background checks, insist on mandatory classes and shooting practice, requiring safe and secure gun storage, and engaging in legal and responsible gun dealers.
Not only would it reduce crime, it would make people feel safer. Gun violence has come to the attention of most citizens over the past years because of the disagreement of whether or not firearms should be restricted. There will always be those who oppose gun control but they may not know the mayor consequences’ having a gun implies. You could be the next victim of a shooting by a person who owns a
Most who support the stricter guns laws believe that the Second Amendment should not just be an open blank option for anyone to own a gun. The gun law supporters feel that if there are more restrictions on firearms, such as who can have them, under what conditions it would cut down on the death crimes but in reality gun control laws do not deter crime; gun ownership deters crime. I agree with the statement from “John Stossel (2008), who is a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, as well as a journalist and reporter for Fox News Channel, explains that laws against guns are really laws against self-defense, and mandatory gun-free zones are in actuality free crime zones”. Stricter gun laws won’t do anything except leave law abiding citizens with less defense options. In my opinion a law abiding citizen will less likely not break the law and own a handgun if they are banned, but a criminal will.
Now is the time to pull the trigger on limiting gun control. With the events that have happened in recent years, many look at gun control as the answer. The problem is just as these events polarize the public, and provide an outcry for preventing them; guns have helped stop violence from occurring in schools and shops from Mississippi to Pennsylvania (Wilson). Heading the main argument for not advancing gun control is self-defense, which gins being used for self-defense occurs between 100,000 and two million times a year. As Wilson states in his article, even outright bans and incredibly tough rules do not stop these events from occurring, such as in England, France, and Germany.
a Bloom A prodigious amount of attention has been drawn to gun crime after many mass shootings in 2015. A mass shooting is defined by the FBI as four or more people shot and/or killed in a single event at the same general time and location (Gun Violence Archive). According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, 371 mass shootings took place in 2015 alone-- leaving 1,387 people wounded and 469 dead. Gun control has become an enduring dispute with many proponents for both sides. Congress needs to find a way to assure that the right to bear arms is protected, but also legally keep guns out of the hands of certain people.
