In order to stop gun violence and approximately 38,500 gun related deaths each year we, society, must choose to wipe out the easy accessibility of guns. In order to prove this to the Americans who believe the second amendment gives them a right to own a gun, anti-gunners must ... ... middle of paper ... .... http://www.gunfree.Inter.net/csgv/bsc_ass.htm.

There should be some sort of a barrier to stop mentally ill, disturbed people, or dangerous people from obtaining dangerous weapons. According to Bobby Cervantes, fifty-one percent of the United States population said they did not want assault weapons to be banned. All guns but handguns are unnecessary and can be a threat to the future of our country. Based on my own opinion, I refuse to think that opinion polls about gun control are hundred percent correct due to the fact that many people wouldn’t want to say gun control is ridiculous considering the recent killings of innocent children. Many people are refusing to give up their guns because of the recent killing sprees that have been going on.
Other people suggest that handguns be left the way they are, which would just be ignoring the problem. I feel, along with sixty percent of the population, that the only way to stop handgun violence is to put safety devices and new safety laws on guns ("Americans want Firearms"). Twenty five percent of the American population believes that the way to handle handgun violence is to completely outlaw handguns ("Handguns in America"). Their argument is not compelling. People in this group believe that if the government outlaws handguns, then citizens will simply hand their handguns over.
That number doesn't even compare to the number of deaths caused by handguns. If they want to stop the amount of killings enforce gun education and enforce stricter punishment on murders. The media also plays a part in gun control. If the news says something is bad or wrong people take their side and views. Rhino Bullets were banned that way.
This bill will establish a more stringent law on background check that focus mainly on the ability to purchase guns for teens, felons, and the mentally ill. It also increase the standard that limits the population that are eligible to own a weapon. Congress hereby finds and declares that the gun control laws in the United States has little effect and they permit the citizens to carry their own weaponry, which has made the U.S into the most violent country in the world. Gun violence has been a serious issue especially in the city of Oakland, California. Residents in some areas do not dare to leave their house after sunset because they are afraid to be another victim in the gunfights.

Gun control Is the way the government regulates guns safe? “In the first seven years of the Iraq war, 4,400 soldiers were killed. Almost as many civilians are killed with guns in the U.S every month,” (Ruben, Alan). It nearly sounds impossible how 2,555 days of war amounts to 30 days of a living environment in America. Guns should only be able to be purchased in stores and not locally because they cannot be given to irresponsible or dangerous people, easier to enforce background checks, and this would be a great substitute instead of banning guns.
About 1/12 of those were accidents while hunting and the rest were intentional homicides (Guns in America). The people who buy guns legally and use them for sport shooting and hunting are not the ones causing the problem in this country. This is why we believe all guns should be bought only after passing a background check. And some sort of mandatory gun safety course. “There were 13.7 million hunters in the United States over age 16 -- 12.7 million of whom used rifles, shotguns or handguns for hunting, according to the U.S.
Guns are the reason so many of these bloody incidents happen. Guns do not make the USA a safer country, as they are supposed to. American doctors have compared the rate of deaths related to guns in countries where owning a gun is legal with the same rate of deaths in countries where owning a gun is illegal. They have found that countries like America, where citizens have the right to bear arms, had 10.2 per 100,000 gun-related deaths. Countries like the UK, where this is illegal, had low gun-related deaths of 0.25 per 100,000.
America may indeed be obsessed with guns, but much of what passes as fact simply are not true. The news media’s focus on only tragic outcomes, while ignoring tragic events that were avoided, may be responsible for some misimpressions. Horrific events like the 1998 shooting in Jonesboro, Arkansas receive massive news coverage, as they should, but the 2.5 million (Guns and gun Violence) times a year there are people that use guns defensively that are never discussed. These include shooting which are stopped before they happen and mothers saving their kids from being kidnapped. Maybe not only is there a need for new gun control acts to be admitted but also there is a need to look deep down to the route of the violence.
