A weapon in the wrongs hands is the maximum danger humanity can face. Nowadays, violence and delinquency in society are viewed as the maximum problem solver. Humanity is full of chaos; hate and envy seize our souls. Guns are the ultimate security for some citizens but for others, these add to a feeling of defenselessness. Throughout history, any topic related to guns means a plethora of problems.
Gun Control Guns have always been a fundamental piece of American life and culture. The Second Amendment of the United States even asserts that firearms are, “necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. In recent times President Obama has put forth a few executive actions in order to try and reduce gun violence.
Passing gun control legislation that creates a universal background check and gun database system as well as passing mental health legislation that improves the health care system’s protocols and policies for assisting people with mental health disorders and that enacts counseling programs in communities and schools will decrease the likelihood of mass shootings in schools. The United States is bitterly divided. Issues of great concern, such as the rise of mass shootings, are partisanized. Both sides of the debate will not comprise or listen to what their opponents have to say. Groups from both sides can only agree that one innocent life taken from gun violence is one too many.
Gun Control Gun control is one of the most talked about issues in America with the many mass shootings in the past years. People are scared and worried for themselves and their families, most of these people want guns to be banned or at least restricted. While the other part of Americans believe that guns are not the issue and feel that banning them would go against their constitution right to bear arms. As of 2013 an estimated 270 million total guns are registered to people in the United States.
Bethany Melton College Composition 1 27 October 2017 My Opinion on Gun Control Gun control; “you often hear those words tossed around, if you look at Mike Lester’s illustration below,”(Lester, 2013) you will see the argument how some people view gun control. The man in the blue represents gun control itself, you will see the wine in his hand represents the relaxedness of the “gun control” situation.
Gun control has always been an issue in the US, simply because we love our guns. The only problem is too many people have been killed for no specific reason. This has caused more mayhem than ever before, with riots, movements and more murder. There has to be a way to stop these events and actually move forward with a valid system for guns that stops all this violence and nonsense. We have come too far in this world to have problems the cowboys should have only
It seems like a daily occurrence. You turn on the TV and the news is reporting another mass shooting. As time passes, more and more mass shootings are happening in the United States. The way to deal with these shootings have caused one of the greatest debates of the 21 century. Gun control has started fights and arguments from the battle room in the capital, to the kitchen table in American’s castles.
In a nation of pioneers and settlers, where we capitalize upon a bear wielding a firearm to represent “our right to bear arms” there has come to be quite a bit of bloodshed because of that right. Fear has been interwoven into the school system, a kind of fear that even the greatest school safety measures cannot prevent. Such instances being the Columbine, Newtown, and the more recent Parkland school shooting. It cannot be controlled who does the killing, but what can be isolated is the weapon those chose as their aid in the slaughtering. So many lives are lost in these devastations a step towards preventing more from being lost is increasing gun control.
Numerous people own firearms and pose no threat to public safety. However, when individuals with a history of violence, substance abuse, and serious mental illness can access firearms due to the existing gun laws, the risk of deadly violence increases greatly. Guns should only be in the battlefield and not in the schools, movie theaters, churches, and communities. To make gun laws make more sense to people, a culture of gun safety should be established.
As of March 5, 2018, there have been 12 school shootings this year alone. That’s about one school shooting every five days, but yet there has been no change made to prevent travesties like this. Gun control is a very controversial subject in the US. There are only two sides to the debate: those who want gun control, and those who don’t. Especially in light of recent events, more people are starting to realize that gun control is necessary now more than ever.
