According to an article called “The research is clear: gun control saves lives” by German Lopez, it says, “A more recent study from 2013, led by a Boston University School of Public Health researcher, reached multiple conclusions: After controlling for multiple variables, the study found that a 1 percent increase in gun ownership correlated with a roughly 0.9 percent rise in the firearm homicide rate at the state level.” The number of gun deaths increased when more people owned guns. If more gun control laws were enacted, it would be harder to obtain a gun. Therefore, there would be fewer deaths by guns. The claim and quote tie into the thesis, because since there are more gun deaths when more people own guns, enacting more gun control laws will make it so that fewer people have guns. Others may say that even though enacting gun control laws will reduce gun deaths, the general homicide rate will still continue to rise.
Through the past 50 years gun problems have peaked and caused issues through the public and media and even government has gotten involved on the issue. Lately the issue has increased incredibly. Mass shootings have become more frequent in the 2000s. It seems as if terrorism has frequently risen but alongside that so have our defenses to stop these things. Defenses are important for saving human lives.
Recently there has been a drastic increase in the amount of murders by the use of a firearm, most likely because we are making them easy to get. We give these powerful guns to just about anyone and everyone. There have been many incidents of kids bring guns and shooting their schools and people gunning down concerts with hundreds of people there. They are allowed in our country for sport, but are being used for destruction. By allowing powerful guns to our citizens we are allowing them to commit these mass murders.
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.
Gun Control In the world today gun violence has skyrocketed. From tragic massacres like the one in Sandy Hook, and the shooting at the movie theater in Colorado to gun violence used my many cops in the shooting deaths of many unarmed men. Many innocent people are dying because of the obliviousness that America has to this issue. There needs to be stronger gun control throughout the United States, because the U.S. has weak gun laws, the background checks are ineffective, and too many mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. America has weak gun laws and needs to follow in the footsteps of other countries by making harsher gun laws.
While people are arguing that having firearms is a good choice for their own security, others argue that a gun control can be dangerous. So, individuals should not be allowed to own guns because in some cases it can result in a deplorable situation. In addition , The United States of America is one of the most dangerous related about gun control, recent reports had shown that there are 88 guns for every 100 people living there without adding the arms of the black market. They do not have an effective firearm tracker method to make sure that the weapons do not reach with dangerous hands. According to Bonnie Schaefer “ It is not just keeping the guns out of the hands of mentally ill people and criminals ...
For example, in 1995, about 60.3% of homicides involved handguns, and 68 % involved guns; in 1996, about 34500 people unfortunately passed away from gunfire in United States, and of these deaths, approximately 45% resulted from homicides. However, for every death shooting, there are at least three nonfatal shootings (Shay et al, 1999). According to my research, there were about 310 million in the country of United States. There were about 50% of households have gun in 1960s. At the same time, the number of guns had increased to one gun per person.
Many of the victims of shootings demand changes. “Similar laws put guns in the hands of shooters who killed 14 people during an office Christmas party in California in 2015, 49 people in a Florida nightclub in 2016, and 58 people at a country music festival in Las Vegas in 2017,” (Text 1, Lines 34-36). For three consecutive years there has at least been one headlining public mass shooting on innocent civilians. The people wants change, and they want it now. Victims and some of the public want people who buy guns to pass mental evaluations, background checks, and to be a certain age to buy a firearm.
This makes it easy for mass shootings to occur similar to the shooting in Las Vegas. Banning assault weapons would make the world much safer by saving many lives. The production, sale, and possession of assault weapons for private citizens should be banned in the US. Assault-style rifles are very dangerous weapons that can be used for very massive shootings, resulting in a very large death toll. In the two
Some might argue that the US is one of the greatest countries in the world, but compared to others, it's one of the worst when it comes to gun control. It has become apparent that the gun control policies aren't as strict as they should be, as everyday in the US, an average of 36 people are killed at the hands of guns and more than 32,000 people are killed annually. Guns violence impacts society in many ways. Statistics show more people have been killed by guns than all the American wars since 1968 and it's estimated that 280 million people currently own a gun in the US. A country where 280 million people running around with firearms that cause fatal harm is incredibly alarming.
