These are just a couple of the reasons why the people of the U.S. are in favor with the idea of guns being legalized. On the other hand, there are a countless amount of people who are against the legalization of guns. Just a handful of the 50 states have trigger locks on their guns for safety and these small parts of... ... middle of paper ... ...that people choose to do, even if there are some problems we face with this there is ways to prevent them and make proper use of guns for things like self-defense. There are many arguable points but if guns are used properly, they may be able to prevent more than you would think. Guns should become legal and help the defenseless and have a feeling of safety in their home.
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.
There is a controversy going on about gun control in the United States, whether if the gun controls should be permitted or not. The gun control debate has been a hot topic for year, and lots of people think guns are unnecessary tool, but some think it is needed for their safety. There are new laws that are dealing with this issue about the gun control. Permitting the carrying of concealed handguns can make the individuals and Unites States safer; however it also causes lots of violent crimes to occur. From the gun owners’ view, they think the gun should be permitted in United States.
This is why people say guns should be enforced heavily and avoided especially, if possible. Some also say that guns are used mostly for harming or hurting other people, but most Americans look at their guns as safety tools for their families. Stripping that away would leave a family susceptible to a burglary. Some say that if expensive guns are made, the violence will stop and crime rate will drop. However, expensive guns will do little to aid in the safety of Americans.
Countless people believe that guns will help citizens protect themselves when targeted for a crime, whereas, a large handful of citizens say that guns “help deteriorate the quality of life in our communities” (Roth 1). What if all the guns in the world just vanished?
There are gun control laws to try and reduce the number of violent shootings that occur. They are trying to put limits on weapons that Americans can own. The government is trying to take our guns away mainly because of people that are criminally insane. Most of the people who commit crimes don’t even have the weapons legally. If the government takes away the rights of people who are allowed to have firearms in their possession, it will most definitely cause an outrage.
Criminals will see that people will be defenceless and they will flourish in many towns.”Such a ban will only increase the criminal ability to victimize the innocent.” “Over the past 20 years, gun sales have absolutely exploded, but homicides with firearms are down 39 percent during that time and “other crimes with firearms” are down 69 percent.” This w... ... middle of paper ... ...n control is not the safe way to go. I would also help support campaigns to spread the word out and help make it a bigger issue to our concern because there isn't much being done about it currently. “Protect children, not guns.” Why not both? I understand that a first concern is a life but you have to keep in mind what you're doing to keep someone safe. The people who say this don't realize that by not defending our rights it will only get harder to defend ourself as well as the people we love.
Many people believe our second amendment rights are being attacked, and that the government wants to take our guns away. It is my belief that Obama does not want to take our guns, but future administrations may use laws made today to do just that in the future. As more gun related tragedies occur in our country, the question has become "How can we reduce gun violence in our county? ", as opposed to "How can we take the peoples' guns away? ", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future?
However, in the society we live in, there are always people that think that having a gun brings and promotes more violence into the communities and also that is a bad influence for the children that grow in that type of environment. The government should make gun control laws more restrictive, although I think that not even if they pass legislations regarding gun violence, there will still exist crimes involving firearms the percentage of this acts of violence may decrease. Gun violence make us question if police officers are they really doing their job? I consider that not all of them are doing their jobs well, there has been a lot of cases of police officers killing innocent people for no reason. Right now, in the United States of America, we have many cases involving police brutality.
America is changing, the country that once was based on religious ideas is slowly becoming history, to the point that we can lose all traces of the America that was founded in 1776. As the days continue there is a continuous battle over the public possessing guns. A large portion believes and supports laws preventing civilians from owning military style rifles. With the growing support, these supports are trying to get guns all together out of the hands of people. With the recent mass shootings, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Colorado, and Virginia Tech, causing big support of these laws, many people fear that losing guns to the government will allow for criminals to do anything they want because civilians wont have a way to protect themselves.
