For example, there is an age limit that differs in some states, those age limits are eighteen years old in some states and twenty-one in other states. However, that is now becoming a problem, especially with how guns are being used. With the past and recent mass shootings, that has taken place in schools and churches, it should strongly be considered to increase the age limit for owning firearms. By, increasing the age limit for handguns and assault rifles
Additionally, although there would be control on firearms, how well would they be enforced? If the laws are not going to be enforced well, others will still possess guns and use them. One last thought on the topic, when there is a mass shooting in the United States, sales of guns go up the next day, this is because citizens feel the need to protect themselves and those around them. American gun culture is very well known as firearms are loved and cherished very much in the history rich United States. Here’s a thought, is the American culture to blame for the need of gun
Gun control has long been a controversial topic in the U.S. The U.S. government need to strengthen the gun control regulations to a level that no one has gun, with only a few exceptions. The government will then still need to have supervision on these exceptions. These can protect her citizens and future. Currently, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution empowers the U.S. citizens to own guns.
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.
Gun Laws According to the Second Amendment in the Constitution, the citizens have the right to possess and bear arms. But, this has remained an important issue since decades. Issues such as gun control and gun rights have remained a matter of debate and have been lobbying around in the Congress meetings. This has resulted in the immense debate about the mass shooting that have become a frequent crime in the United States. In 2015 alone there have been 351 mass shootings.
The second Amendment of the U.S constitution states “The Right the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." Are forefathers believed we should be able to protect ourselves? The United States Supreme court has also established many rulings pertaining to guns. In 2008 and 2010 the court made many decisions in favor of guns. Cases like (District of Columbia et al.
Although regional differences are not as distinct these days, many issues are currently causing division among the states and people of our country. These issues lead to what our history describes as “modern sectionalism.” One such issue is gun control. The article I have read and based my argument off of, is about the ways that the government can implement safe, reliable, and efficient gun control laws on semi automatic rifles, that everyone can support. A very big factor is to establish an affordable, high quality, and dependable system of mental health treatment that is accessible by anyone at anytime. This is important to ensure that, people who may pose a threat to our society will be recognised and helped before they can hurt anyone.
I strongly believe, that firearms can be dangerous in the wrong hands that is why I believe firearms training is important. The best training consists of parents passing on our firearms heritage, respect for people and property, and some common sense safety rules to their children. Although for many people this training will be enough. Formal firearms training courses, like Hunter Safety Courses and the course required to obtain a concealed carry permit, are also very useful. Therefore, these courses reinforce the basic safety rules that everyone who handles firearms should know.
The government doesn 't have to completely ban them, but just making it harder to get them, having deeper background checks, drug and mental test, like in Japan, would help a lot. The dream of being free from the fear that guns inflict can become a reality if we work towards it. Vote in upcoming elections for people who also believe in the more gun control and join in on peaceful protests no matter how big or small. Eventually we will gain the government 's
Different parts of the country have separate views regarding gun control laws. Such as, Americans from the south may say current gun control laws are fine, and Americans in the north may say they need to be stricter. Some would even say guns need to be banned all together. If an individual’s ultimate goal is to commit bodily harm to someone, they are going to do it whether they have a gun or not. However, normal procedures for purchasing a gun such as waiting periods, gun registrations, and background checks are sufficient for keeping guns from those who mean to do harm.
There would be a huge debate about the Second Amendment and opponents will argue about how the Second Amendment also referred to individuals in America and how the amendment protects individual gun ownership. Chairperson of Revolution PAC, Lawrence Hunter, stated, "The Founders understood that the right to bear laws is as primary and as essential to maintaining liberty. The rights of free speech, a free press, freedom of religion and the other protections against government encroachments on liberty described in the Bill of Rights.” Supporters might argue and state how its original meaning was intended to protect the militia, but opponents believe otherwise. Opponents of more female protection might say that Gun control laws do not deter crime; gun ownership deters crime. A survey ran in December of the year 2014 resulted that American males were owning a gun protect them from being victimized.
