Sitting in a cold, damp theatre in Cleveland, Ohio, surrounded on all sides by grey walls, dim lights light the stairway to the only exit. The movie begins, abruptly halted by a crackle of gunfire and the wails of those who stand in the paths of the bullets. Suddenly, the lone door to the theatre swings open, and five men armed to the teeth burst into the theatre, huddling the mass of people into one corner of the room. The men plan to execute every last person in the theatre one by one. Three of the trapped men draw their own weapons overpowering the attackers. Three people died in this shooting. If these heroes did not possess their weapons, every last person would have been slaughtered. Gun control defies personal freedom, implementation, and increases crime.
Should only the criminals be allowed to own guns that they buy from the Black-market? Ask yourself this question next time you vote. A coalition of gun control groups and some politicians are trying to get the Second Amendment changed so that millions of Americans can’t and won’t be able to own guns legally in the United States. The Second Amendment reads: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. The number of well-publicized public shootings during the past few years, especially the tragedy at Columbine High School, has re-energized the gun control movement. As a show of strength coalition of gun control groups have organized many protests. These types of events are designed to stir up emotions rather than promote rational thought.
In America guns have been a part of the country since its birth. Throughout history, people of the US have used guns to protect our nation, their families, to hunt for food. The issue of guns and gun control takes on a fraction of problems in the world. Weighing the rights and liberties of individuals against the welfare and safety of the public has always been a risky balancing act. In the United States, gun control is one of these issues that has both sides firmly stated in their positions.
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. To many people gun control is a crime issue, to others it is a rights issue. The US should not adopt stricter gun control laws because, it 's the best source of protection, laws will not control criminals, and it takes away your Second Amendment rights. The majority of U.S. gun owners does not represent a threat to society ( Gun Control Reform par. 1). The other part is either mentally ill or a criminal.
Research shows that guns are used much more often to prevent crimes then they are used to aid crimes. Therefore, laws that hinder the ordinary citizens right to self-defense with a fire arm tend to cause a net increase in crime. (Connell, Shaun) Gun control advocates want to take the most important necessity for safety away. People say it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with the gun. This statement is very true, if a criminal with a gun comes to a movie theater to kill and the movie theater is a no gun zone. What do you do? There is nothing to do, that 's why gun control laws do not work to keep people safe. If there were no ban on handguns, then maybe you get a fighting chance for your life. Look at the recent Orlando shooting, 49 dead by one person. Your telling me if a couple of people in that club had handguns on them there would be a did rent outcome. Some pro-gun control advocates say that take guns away and the crime will stop, NOT TRUE! If you take guns away, it just puts more good people at risk because criminals will get the illegally like they already do. The safety of the people is what the government needs to focus on. Gun control acts are stupid because they are putting people at risk. I have known countless number of Samaritans that a gun has saved their life just pointing during a robbery or
Gun control is one of the most controversial and one of the most talked about topics in the U.S. Some believe that if guns are taken away that there will be less violence and that the death rate may even go down. While others believe that they have a right to bare arms like it states in the constitution. One of the most talked about reasons on why gun control should be stricter is the obvious: guns are not safe. But what people don’t understand is that everytime a gun is purchased a criminal background check is done right away. What people are unaware if is that the majority of people who purchase guns have already bought one in the past. Another talked about issue is the Right to Bear Arms. The Right to Bear arms has been in the constitution for decades. The constitution is not just something you can edit and re-write everytime you see a problem with it or think its “outdated”
Gun Control The second amendment of the constitution states that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. In my opinion, this means that people have the right to own guns to form a militia to protect the nation or to be used in self-defense against a criminal. Furthermore, denying the public access to firearms for protection will only result in more crime, because the only real deterrent to criminal activity is encountering an armed victim that is ready to defend himself. I am opposed to any form of gun control because laws prohibiting the sale of firearms does not protect the general public and restrict liberty.
“Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave; o 'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” (“The Star Spangled Banner,” 2012). The United States of America is a patriotic nation. It’s founders fought long and hard for the liberties that American’s enjoy today. The Constitution of the United State of American, along with the Bill of Rights was the founder’s way of ensuring that their posterity and all American’s would enjoy the liberties and freedom that were bravely fought for. The Second Amendment to the Constitution protects the individual’s right to bear arms and strict gun control laws infringe on those rights; moreover, the government should focus on the person behind the weapon, not the weapon itself.
Through out the history of the United States, most, if not all households owned a gun. Used for protection, hunting, hobbies etc. In the second amendment it guaranteed the right to bear arms. The amendment states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. The liberals are trying to amend the constitution in whatever way. Either stop the sales of firearms or restrict the sales so much that minimal amount of people can buy them. Most studies show that controlling firearms have not stop people from committing crimes.
Assignment 1 Christian Dino Palm Beach State College Professor Mancusi, Philip Gun Control Gun control is a subject of debate intrinsically, and uniquely, ambiguous in American culture. To start, there’s the issue of the actual constitutional interpretation of our second amendment right. That is, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Some argue that the clause “the right of the people” automatically implies that the right to bear arms rest within the individual. While others suggest the fact that it says “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state” entails it is limited to the protection of the state against
