The best thing Gun Control will prevent is violence with our youth because Americans need to preserve the lives of the next generations to come. Controlling handguns means that everyone and their friends can enjoy life more without worrying about being held up at AM-PM, or being caught up in the middle of a very dangerous terrorist attack. When deciding on gun control, think first about preserving the safety of the citizens of this nation.

Gun Control Guns can be used to control violence, Guns cause violence, Guns can ensure peace; Guns can destroy peace but should gun regulations be tightened to prevent national gun- related crimes? As the world changes and technology advances our natural born rights will never change because it is the base that holds our country together. Thereforth law-abiding citizens should be able to have guns because of the second amendment, right to insulate as long as there are more critical background checks. If we allowed every american to carry a gun legally in public it may cause a reduction in crime because potential criminals might not follow through with their crime if the gun is not hidden. but if it is and a law is passed allowing it criminals will not know who will be carrying a firearm.
", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future?

The majority of the time that gun control is discussed, you will hear points made such as "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Anti-gun-control lobbyists argue that Obama blames mass shootings, homicides, and suicides on guns. Is Obama placing blame in the wrong place?
In terms of the gun debate in America, individuals should prioritize personal liberty because having more guns people might feel more safe and protected.

This is why the state of Oklahoma needs to put a stricter gun policy to the citizens of this state, so that the crime rates that involve a gun will go down. When the United States Constitution adopted the Second Amendment as a part of the Bill of Rights it was to recognize citizens the right to keep and bear arms. This Second Amendment is the reason why strong gun advocates are afraid to have any gun policy put in this state. The people that have their guns believe that the government is going to be corrupted and the people have to overturn it. But, they live in a fairytale if they really thinking that they are going to beat a army like the United States.
Obama’s proposals sought to reform the national firearm purchase check system, so that offenders and the mentally ill could not buy guns legally, and close down the unregulated secondary gun market which is such a handy supply line for the criminally inclined.While critics dispute that enacting restrictions on gun sales is imperative to keep Americans safe, gun control restricts citizens’ rights to the 2nd Amendment, proves ineffective in other countries, and neglects to lower the crime rate. The first reason why gun control should not be strengthened is that citizens have the right to own guns; it is one of those entitlements that makes the United States different from other countries.

We need to find a way to make it harder for guns to fall into the wrong hands. There are actually two sides to every problem: some want to solve by taking guns away and some think we should just make smarter gun laws. One side of the agreement believes that guns don’t kill people, people do, just like when there are car accidents the driver killed the victim not the car, and that we should not make any major law changes and the other side thinks that without guns the problem would be solved, they think that the gun is the reason why we have shooting. One of the problems is that of the last few shootings have been in gun-free zones such as schools and Government buildings. For instance, in the Sandy Hook shooting, the shooter was in a school which is a gun free zone.

This group is in favor of pushing legislation to cut back on guns, but there is another large portion of the population that opposes such laws because they infringe on the second amendment right to bear arms. Proponents of gun control believe new gun laws that would take guns from everyone would reduce the amount of violent gun crimes in the US. This group also believes that having guns in households increases the chances of accidental death by firearm. The opposition to the proposed laws believe that no matter how many laws are passed and no matter how strict they might be, criminals will still get their hands on firearms and the population would be left defenseless. Although many people believe gun control laws would be beneficial and reduce crime, it is important to realize that criminals will still get weapons and in the end it is the American people who are being hurt by gun control laws- not criminals.
