United States' Gun Control Problem - United States' Gun Control Problem Gun control is hardly a new issue in America, much less in American politics. Ownership of guns is extraordinarily widespread in the United States, and has been for some time. Since the late 1950s, the share of American households reporting at least one firearm has remained fairly constant at just under 50 percent (Gun Control Debate 959). This shift in the character of ownership has taken place against a complicated legal backdrop, the basic feature of which at the federal level is the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Brady Crime Prevention Act passed in 1994 (Cohen)....   [tags: Second Amendment The Right To Bear Arms] 926 words

Effects of Gun Control - It is impossible not to open a newspaper, watch the television, or listen to the radio with out hearing about some type of gun violence. Perhaps the main reason for such high gun violence is that guns are so plentiful in the Unites States. In fact, there are sixty five million handguns in America ("The `facts' about Guns"). These guns contribute to an annual medical cost of fourteen billion dollars, which is spent solely on treating gun victims ("Handguns in America"). Not surprisingly, handguns are the cause of eighty percent of homicides, seventy percent of suicides, and almost every accidental shooting ("Youth and Violence")....   [tags: Second Amendment The Right To Bear Arms] 1724 words

Many recent studies have shown that gun control is needed in a society like ours today and helps to curb all types of gun related fatalities not just homicides. In Canada, over 3000 firearms are stolen annually. Gun control is needed to be able to trace the usage of guns and the hands they fall into.

The numbers seem to sway in the favor of gun control being ineffective against the epidemic of gun violence that is facing this nation today. There is evidence to support that many guns used for illegal activities are obtained by illegal means anyway, making laws to restrict the purchase of said guns ineffective at keeping firearms out of criminals hands. Evidence also supports the statements that guns are used in defense more often than not, that the age old statistic that “13” children die each day by guns is inaccurate, and that there are numbers that show the direct relationship between the loosening of gun...   [tags: Second Amendment The Right To Bear Arms] 1233 words
