As an avid gun owner and enthusiast I am against the gun control laws and gun control in general. Although I do believe they should have stricter back ground checks and offer more training for the use of guns, which they already do both, they should also be a lot more careful on how they sell and who they sell guns too. Guns are extremely powerful weapons. They can cause destruction, harm or even death. People need to understand that and I think that is what is wrong in today’s society, the lack of education and proper training with guns and firearms.
So just because states have laws, very strict laws against gun control doesn’t necessarily mean that people will abide by them because they have their own perspectives on guns themselves. Civilians feel as though they should have the right to own a gun in case of an emergency where they might feel as though they need protection, but because of the gun control laws it is to long of ... ... middle of paper ... ...ng were to happen. Gun control will always be the booming topic in the government because it always covers so many different aspects of different laws. We need the weapons to continue being made because of the possibility of war at any moment so having firearms could be a great use incase we need any type of assistance. War is a main cause of why people think that guns should be banned altogether, with all the nuclear weapons we now have for war makes countries so scared of others.
Facts and morales can be found on both sides of the debate over guns in America. On the one hand, many gun-rights advocates reject even the most sensible restrictions on the sale of weapons to the public. On the other, activist of stricter gun laws often seem unable to understand why a good person would ever want ready access to a loaded firearm. Between these two extremes we must find grounds for a rational discussion about the problem of gun violence.Unlike most Americans, I stand on both sides of this debate. I see how many people feel toward “gun culture,” and I disagree with their outrage over the political influence of the National Rifle Association.
For decades the second amendment was simply known as the right to bear arms. People looked at it as a staple of our country and never truly thought to undermine it. However, in today’s world the right to bear arms has come into considerable question. The conversation of gun regulation is so topical that it has created a divide across our country. It seems there is no right answer considering pro gun supporters claim, “without guns we are unprotected from gunmen,” and citizens against guns claim, “you’re only adding fuel to the fire.” Enforcing the current gun laws and regulations would virtually put an end to these talks.
The sale of firearms is an incredibly confusing process. Shotguns, rifles, and handguns all have individual registration and guidelines of sale. Althoug... ... middle of paper ... ...lling these signs. Gun control would help to keep firearms out of the hands of violent individuals, but we must exercise this in moderation and maintain the integrity of the second amendment. The second amendment has become under attack more heavily over the past few years, and I believe that supporters of the amendment must act now to preserve it.
Why, because the sportsman’s, and collectors are worried that the government is going to try to confiscate there weapons. I feel that this is one of the most complex issues that America has to deal with. This is an amendment that took place from when the country was first founded and grew out of the English legal tradition. This was written in which all men were able to have ownership of their firearms and for them to keep peace. In the United States there are millions of people that are against the 2nd Amendment.
Some government officials think guns should be fully legal, other think it should be illegal and that all guns should be taken away from the people. This is a huge ongoing rights debate, because both sides have solid platforms and dedicated members. I believe people should have gun rights, having a gun to protect your rights as a person and as a citizen of the United States is a necessary evil to keep the peace. Taking away the rights citizens have to own guns will result in more violence and will create a bigger issue, because the people using their guns legally for protection will be left unprotected from other people who take advantage of the law and will use an illegal gun to commit a crime. The right to own a gun has evolved over the years.
What holds many people back from seeing the truth is the disadvantageous annotation that comes with change. Sure, this country was built on people who rose up and overthrew the unethical government with their own weapons, but that is not what is being threatened; the right of a militia and to own firearms is written in the second amendment. What does need to change, however, is the idea that the constitution is flawless and covers all things. Although the constitution does lay very stable ground rules for a country to be governed, laws are meant to change with new inventions and ideals. New models of more and more deadly firearms are created everyday, each being deadlier that the latter.
Since it is a national issue, this essay will focus on gun control from the perspective of a gun advocate and provide evidence as to why gun ownership must be preserved and enforced. If gun control measures become too severe, civilians would be disarmed against criminals who would cause them harm, as the civilian population would have no way to defend themselves. Since gun control is a largely controversial issue, there are many political individuals and groups on both sides of the issue that struggle to either preserve gun ownership or increase regulations on firearms. In recent years, gun control supporters, such as President Barack Obama, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Brady Campaign and the Coalition to Stop Gun Vio... ... middle of paper ... ...r "assault" weapons, as to pass legislation to prevent gun owners from possessing such firearms. Although the debate still rages on about gun control, what remains important is that the right of the people to bear arms to be preserved, as a society with a disarmed people will be at the mercy of the criminals, and possible oppressive government, who will use force against those who can't defend themselves.
Current lawmakers believe that any possession of firearms leads to serious danger because of the way that they might be used. It is also reported that since 2000, most American citizens have been in favor of stricter gun laws (Dreier 92). These lawmakers look toward the tragedies of Newtown, Connecticut and of Aurora, Colorado. They realize that guns pose a legitimate threat to the safety of the United States and the well-being of its citizens. While the safety and well-being of the American public is important, these lawmakers are taking the wrong approach in their strides for protection.
