When argued that the Second Amendment is purely to keep from disarming the state militias can not be entirely true, for it is said in the last half of the Amendment itself “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. Meaning that we the “people” still have the right to keep and bear arms. The Bill of rights were set in place for American citizens, abolishing the second Amendment right would cause an uproar throughout our country. As is said everyone wants what they cannot have. For an example, in December of 1920 the
Citizens should be well informed about: the argument for gun control and why it is the best way of dealing with the issue, the arguments against gun control, and the new laws being placed by President trump concerning the new age limit of purchasing a firearm, allowing school personnel to be armed with the consent of the board, and seizing weapons from those with mental disabilities. A huge question facing gun owners is now, are they willing to give up the firearms they possess to save another human beings life? Gun Control should be put into action to keep school shootings from happening and protecting the children of America. The significant
Gun Laws On Feburary 14, 2018 in Parkland Florida, a 19-year-old gunman who was a former student, opened fire at his old high school. The shooter killed 17 and injured 14. After the incident, many U.S citizens talked about gun control. The phrase “gun laws” trended on Google bringing the intrest rate from 11 to 100 within minutes. While this trend was tipping, this same tendency has been popular before, an example being the Sandy Hook shooting in December of 2012.
However, when in the wrong hands, guns can be used to do terrible things like mass shootings. Many people argue that we need more mental health services or that it is a safety issue and therefore we should have more armed security at schools, concerts, large events. However, I argue that in order to prevent a mass shooting from happening we need stricter gun control laws. A very recent mass shooting was the Florida school shooting. A 19-year-old male killed 17 people including 14 students and 3 staffs working at the high school and leaving many people injured.
Owning a firearm is a big responsibility and we need to keep that responsibility in the hands of the people that can handle it. (Farago) Gun control is one of the most debated topics in America, but we need to understand they are not the problem. The Second Amendment is a crucial point in the debate for gun control laws. It clearly states “the people 's right to keep and bear arms shall not
Following the aftermath of the Parkland school-shooting in Florida , many advocates, including high school students, are pushing people nationwide to participate in a ‘walkout’. Now what is a school walkout? A school walkout is a chance for students to protest gun violence for seventeen minutes by leaving their classrooms. This would include students using signs and chants to stand against gun violence, as well as to push reform on gun laws. I believe the idea of K-12 students participating in this walkout is inappropriate.
The guns laws in this country must, absolutely must be reformed. I am an eighth grade student at Woodlawn Beach Middle School in Gulf Breeze. In the past couple of weeks, I have been told about multiple shooting threats to schools in our area. I was also informed of a recent shooting in Pensacola. Then, there was the school shooting in south Florida.
Congress immediately begun to spur and feed of the masses going to social media calling for action to bring about more laws regulating gun sales and ownership. Denying culpability of violence to guns would be an irresponsible action regardless of which side of the argument you stood on. Anti-gun sentiments point to stricter laws on banning "certain" types of guns, however there are sects that believe that banning any and all guns is the only answer to our dilemma. "It doesn 't take specialized expertise in constitutional law to understand that current U.S.
There have been many innocents of where demonic people choose to walk into a school full of loving people and just shoot them. Recently there was a massive shooting in Florida, resulting in 17 people dead. Students, teachers and family members that witnessed this tragic situation happen or just the parents who will not be able to hug their children(s) bye before school in the morning spoke out to this country and to the President that they have had enough, and they want something done now. Many people argue that they should ban guns just like other countries have to prevent any shootings of any kind, but President Trump has an idea stated in “Trump suggests arming teachers as a solution to increase school safety” by Dan Mercia. That teacher should carry guns on them for the school’s safety, but states that there is already plenty of teachers who are licensed to carry firearms and we should have them raise their hands to volunteer for the training.
The Second Amendment of The United States Constitution states that "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." The topic of the editorial, "Let The Teachers Teach" by The New York Times Editorial Board, is about gun control and why it is important that guns are out of schools. A few weeks ago there was another school shooting in the United States, twelve school shootings to be exact in just nine weeks. In Parkland, Florida a 19-year old man walked into a school with an AR-15 and shot and killed 17 students. The editorial states that in response President Trump is suggesting that we should arm 20% of the teachers in primary and secondary schools which would equal around 700,000 teachers in the United States would be carrying around guns.
