One reason to keep guns in the hands of the people is fairly simple, but its impact is highly underestimated: guns stop criminals and in some cases prevent the crime before it even begins. Criminals are less likely to commit a crime with a gun such as mugging if they believe that there is a chance that they will get shot in the process. In situations a bit more extreme such as mass shootings, guns owners have the ability to take out the shooter and prevent a much greater loss of life from happening. According to an article published in Investors Business Daily, “A major factor in determining how many people are harmed by these killers is the amount of time that elapses between when the attack starts and someone is able to arrive on the scene with a gun” (Lott). Often times civilians with concealed carry permits are on the scene much sooner than possible for law enforcement.
Lastly,guns are not the problem and should not be restricted but the people using them should be restricted from using them. Most mass school shooting the history behind most of the victims is that they usually have some kind of disability or have had a rough life or even depression.That 's why if the government has stricter gun laws there is no point since it 's the people and not the weapon. Therefore since guns are used to protect people,used for hunting,and the guns are not the problem it is the people,guns should not be banned or have stricter gun
The liberalization of the media, television, movies, and on-line games have been defended by their first amendment rights with little or no regard for the after effects they cause. We accept that it is not an infringement of your first amendment rights to yell fire in a crowded theater but showing gratuitous violence is far more dangerous. There are and should be limits on what Hollywood can produce. We also know that the right defends their second amendment rights in justifying weapons like the AR-15. Automatic weapons have long been banned as is owning a bazooka, but the right properly states that the AR-15 is not an
Guns are a cost-benefit ratio along with everything else in this world. Guns don’t fire by themselves, so why do we need to outlaw guns when the gun doesn’t pull its own trigger? Instead, we need to work with the people using them. Gun laws are to keep people that aren’t supposed to have guns from getting guns and they are also in place to protect the people who have guns and give them the right to bear arms. Studies show that gun ownership has increased incredibly while at the same time crime has decreased to historic lows The second amendment says people have the right to bear arms and they can’t be taken away.
Mass Shooting Most people argue that everyone should have a right to bear firearms. However, unlimited access to guns endangers the safety of the society. Guns can fall in the hands of bloodthirsty offenders or of mentally unstable people. Therefore, firearms should be controlled and must be allowed based on certain qualifications. Most mass shooters have no solid reason or any emotional ties with their victims, but they all have access to firearms.
Such as, the non-firearm crime, and the cause is from the owners not the guns. Memorable end/ call for action/ recommendation: There are still many of crimes cases involving non-firearm robbery, human’s behaviour and the sentence never end even the gun has been banned. To put some effort in controlling the crimes, policemen or cops and the prosecutors should work in cooperation to make a big disintegration value of crimes cases in this world. So that, the world can become peaceful and every citizen can enjoy their life without the fear of the
Though gun control may not protect every life, it would save many. To begin, enforcing gun control would lower the rate of gun violence. According to a website named ProCon.org, it states “The presence of a gun makes a conflict more likely to become violent”. Gun control takes the guns away from people that would be doing this also causing less fights. If the stimulation to that kind of violence is take away then less fights with these lethal weapons would take place.
Guns have been with us for centuries whether it be for hunting or defending, we can all agree it’s something in our life now that most think it’s unnecessary and just causes destruction and that it should be banned, but is that the real answer? If guns were to be taken away it would only cause them to be stashed illegally, so it would barely make a difference. And riots would which is kinda counterintuitive if you think about it. Not only that it would cause more violence around places where hunting was acceptable. It all in would cause more damage than letting people own firearms.
The amount of people calling for a full ban are in the vast minority; most people advocating for gun control just want to make sure that average people, not the mentally ill or felons, can own a gun for self-defense, hunting or recreational shooting. There are more guns than people in this country, and while it may be difficult or pointless to regulate the legal, over the table purchase of them, it’s better than doing nothing, or letting teachers carry guns, which would do nothing but cause more chaos, fear, and deaths. Your 2nd amendment rights are not restricted by having to pass a background check or mental health test, in the same way that your 1st amendment rights are not restricted because you cannot say “fire!” in a movie theater or threaten someone’s life. Amendments need to adapt to be applicable, and an amendment written by people 240 years ago should not and will not be applied the same way as it is in the
Personally I believe that some of the laws we have asked for will not help any of our problems, but instead make many legal gun owners become criminals simply because of the weapons they choose for defense, hunting, or sports shooting. The people who wish to see more laws do have some sound logical requests. Due to the blanket type laws that are proposed, many of these views are altered because people have not thought of the aftermath of passing such laws. One item that has been proposed on many levels of state and federal government is to ban assault type weapons. Many Americans that believe we should do this, have a faded vision of what an assault weapon actually is.
