Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger. These accusations are not true and it’s all based on the place and time. In conclusion, assault weapons should not be banned. Previous bans have not been successful,
Gun Control can do its job with interfering with law abiding gun owners as little as possible. Many people believe that Gun Control laws are not going to stop the rate of murders and deaths go down because they say that it is not the
Regulating the amount of guns in the hands of American citizens, more guns preventing crime and the interpretation of the Second Amendment are all crucial topics in debating gun control. With less guns ownership, there would be a severe drop in homicides and other gun related deaths. Additionally, some contend more guns would associate with a lower crime rate. This is due to bystanders stepping in and stopping any potential crime or crime in progress. Lastly, the true meaning of the Second Amendment very controversial.

I believe their laws are a little extreme, but good for their situation. I also believe that gun laws could probably be enforced better instead of making new laws to protect us that don’t work. If bad people can still get illegal drugs, they will be able to get illegal guns too. That would mean the law abiding citizen wouldn’t have a good way of protecting
In fact, people say it is simply just a distraction. Questions have been asked and many others have been formed due to the debate of whether or not gun control is needed. The argument is that the guns themselves are not the problem. The point being made by these people are that the guns that are used for mass shootings are usually legally bought, therefore, it is not the gun killing people but the people who own the guns. Also, that these mass shootings have happened in places where guns are not
To begin with, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the man most people believe kidnapped and murdered the child, was captured after an employee at a gas station recognized one of the marked bills used to pay for the child’s location (Sifakis 534). In addition, people reported Hauptmann having great woodworking skills and a previous criminal record when he came to the United States (Klein). This claim is imperative because very few people knew of his previous criminal file, and that he was capable of using his personal interests to kidnap the child. Also, many people know that Hauptmann used wood from his attic for the ladder used in the crime and used handwritten notes to get across to the parents. ¨Throughout repeated investigations, the state has concluded that Mr. Hauptmann was linked to the ladder used in the kidnapping, to the hand-written ransom demands and to the ransom money¨ (¨Museum and New Jersey Are at Odds Over Files¨).
However, a stricter regulation on gun control will not ensure people’s safety as gun control not only regulates aspects related to guns, but it also regulates a person’s ability to defend themselves. In a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 49% of the people stated hunting as main purpose for owning a gun while 26% stated protection; however, in 2013 when the survey was re-conducted, the reasons changed as 48% of the people stated protection as the main reason why they would own guns rather than hunting, which was at 32% (“Why Own a Gun? Protection Is Now Top Reason”). Additionally, how can the government regulate the purchase of weapons from illegal trade/black markets, a resource criminal often uses to gain weapons? Therefore, gun-violence prevention must be sought through alternative means such as using metal detectors in schools like those placed in airports.

Even though gun laws prevent deaths, they infringe so many rights in the immutable Bill of Rights, which is one of the foundations of the great United States. Gun laws give too much power to the government and way less from the people, which will lead to government corruption. And, stated by ClearPictureOnline.com,”Guns don 't kill people, people do. We need to concentrate on the values and morals of our citizens and at the role the media plays in glorifying violence and the lack of respect for law.” (Shootout: Do We Need More Gun Control Regulations?) What people don 't understand is that they are taking away their own freedoms with Gun Control.

20 July 2015. In the article Gun Control Laws Will Not save Lives, Wright analyzes various laws, supported by pro gun control advocates such as limitations on handgun purchases, as well as magazine capacity.
