Gun Control Banning of Assault Weaponry Gun violence has greatly affected the community around us. The debate of whether or not guns should have more restrictions is an everyday issue. Each year, there are at least 32,000 incidents involving guns used by citizens. (BBC News) A number of people have died due to the lack of gun security in our homes and even our countries.
The Gun Debate The second Amendment guarantees that “A well-regulated Militia,being necessary to the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” In the article, “The Gun Debate” it states that President Obama thinks the gun laws do not need to be increased. This is what he says, “No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.” I believe that this is true because, murder is already illegal, so there is no point in making more laws for the people that chose not to pay attention to them.
The right to bear arms has been in the constitution as the second amendment since December 5th, 1791. This amendment should be repealed because in modern times all of us do not need guns. ”The rate of death from firearms in the United States is eight times higher than that in its economic counterparts in other parts of the world.” According to Kellermann AL and Waeckerle JF(1998) Nations of our size and power have found solutions to gun violence by making guns illegal and hard to obtain.
The Second Amendment states that one has the right to bear arms. This right can be taken away from one when they do some sort of crime that goes against this and gets their right taken away from them. Around 3 million americans carry a gun with they all the time with a concealed weapons permit. That number is 20% out of the 15 million americans that have a concealed weapons permit. We should not get rid of the right to carry a concealed weapon though there are exceptions depending on the person and their history.
Gun Control: Assault Weapons Should be Banned in America In the past decade there have been many mass shootings which sparked a nationwide debate on the ban on assault weapons. Assault weapons are Semiautomatic weapons that are usually used in the military due to their advanced features. The difference between a Semiautomatic weapon and a regular pistol is that semiautomatic guns reload automatically and can fire consistently (Assault Weapons). Majority of Americans argue that Assault Weapons should be banned nationwide because of the amount of mass shootings caused by Assault weapons.
Gun Control: Identifying Its Opposition And Feasible Solutions The discrepancy between opposing opinions among United States citizens’ views on gun control is a large problem that has faced the nation for several years. Due to recent tragedies related to the issue, many Americans have responded in outrage, demanding more rigorous laws related to firearm control; Others believe it would only be harmful to enact stricter gun laws, under the idea that it would present a lack of self-defense. This essay will review the pros and cons of the opposing views surrounding the controversy, and analyze the individual aspects of both opinions, while discussing possible resolutions to the issue.
Introduction: A complete ban on guns for the common people is in our best interest — no matter what the intent may be of using said weapon. None but those appointed in great authority (police, etc.) shall own firearms, and those who do so illegally are to then be punished by law, according to the laws set in place. Narration & Refutation: Since late 1789, as the Constitution was still being taken into total effect, the American people have held the right to legally keep and bear arms; this right has been altered multiple times already since its existence. The American people at that time lived in a world far from what it is today: no one can deny that.
Have you ever wanted to learn about gun control, there are many arguments that have to do with the arguments. There are many different directions that people want the gun laws to go.

Parents, children and students of America, the American Government is depriving you of your security and well being. Anyone over the age of 18 can own a semi-automatic weapon and use it against you. The number of those affected in the United States, as well as the location where incidents occur continuously change but the weapon remains the same. Enforcing rules regarding semi-automatic weapons and their accessories are the most simplistic option. According to The Washington Post, The United States of America (USA) has 88.8 guns per one hundred people or about seventy million guns overall.
Mass shootings have become a commonality for Americans, and we as a country have become used to the high death toll associated with these tragedies. Killers armed to the teeth seek a highly dense hunting ground to rake in as many kills during their bloodbath. Mass shootings are not uniquely an American problem, but they are uniquely common here. Federal bans, public safety campaigns, and state laws have attempted to attack the mass shooting dilemma. As shootings continue, the issue remains a prevalent debated topic in politics and leaving many dumbfounded on what course of action needs to be taken to save us from the plight we’re in.
The assault rifle ban has critics that believe by banning the weapons, it would make the country a unsafe place. Opponents claim that the Second Amendment reserves the right to own any type of weapon for self-defense. Noel Marino, the Editor and Author of Guns and Crimes, stated "Gun control supporters had argued that the Founding Fathers could not have in envisioned semi-automatic firearms, and thus the Second Amendment only protected firearms such as muskets. However, the court dismissed that notion saying " some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way.
