They could ban gun sales all together and it would not stop criminals from obtaining guns. One thing everyone needs to remember is if not guns, then criminals will find other weapons to use to to commit crimes. Will more stringent gun control laws create less crime? Will stiffer gun control deter known criminals from committing their heinous acts? Gun rights and gun control have long histories.
Gun control is legislation that is specifically aimed at imposing measures to make it harder for an individual to acquire a firearm. Gun control comes in many forms including mandatory licenses, background checks, waiting periods, and various others. As Alex Jones had said “When strict gun control laws are prevalent, the fear of getting shot goes away and criminals tend to flourish.” which shows how something that is meant to prevent crime (gun control) actually contributes to crime. Individuals who go through the legal process and apply for a gun permit care about their own preservation of life. Someone does not apply for a gun permit in order to commit gun related crimes.
However, expensive guns will do little to aid in the safety of Americans. Rather, criminals will be able to easily obtain weapons illegally, and the innocent civilians will be... ... middle of paper ... ... businesses as well. If guns were enforced or banned it would be the same thing, and profits would go through the roof for gangs and other criminals. Instead of trying to enforce gun control laws, the government should team with police and educate people on how to use gun properly and always call police for help. Never try to handle a situation yourself if you know someone will get hurt.
In terms of the gun debate in America, individuals should prioritize personal liberty because having more guns people might feel more safe and protected. In the United States, in order for people to legally carry guns, individuals have to pass through background checks but the background checks are failing because some individuals are bringing guns illegally to the state. In Nicholas Kristof article “Some Inconvenient Gun Facts for Liberals” gave some suggestions that having back... ... middle of paper ... ...he gun debate in America, has many people talking about how dangerous guns could be. Trying to avoid people to buy guns or eliminate guns would not help because guns could be brought illegally. Background checks would only work if the government makes the law stricter but since is not yet strict, then things will still remain the same.
Don’t change the laws, just enforce them better. Gun control is a very large and very controversial issue in our country today. Disarming civilians, though, is not the way to deal with armed criminals. The government should let us keep our rifles, shotguns, and handguns, because we have proven ourselves by means of a background check to be responsible citizens. If we ban guns, we lose our best chance at defending ourselves from criminals who get guns illegally.
There have been wide debates in the United States regarding gun control and some people believe on the idea of there being no rules governing gun control or some people believe on the idea that laws on gun control should be increased in this country. The reasoning behind gun control is to regulate laws on the sale, possession, and use of a gun due to the violence spread across the nation. However, some people that dislike gun control would bring up the Second Amendment that allows the citizens to have the right to bear arms and can use them for self-defense. I believe there should be no gun control, but there should be stricter background checks with removing state laws on guns like waiting periods, magazine restrictions, and permit to conceal
The second amendment clearly states “the right to bear arms”, don’t let the government try to change that. Don’t let gun control laws fool the public, because they have not been proven to reduce crime at all. So go out and buy a gun before that right is taken away. Eventually guns might just be a thing of the past. So practice your right to protect your country and vote against gun control any time that you
According to Joe Lienhard, these regulations only apply to gun dealers. If someone couldn't buy a gun because they failed the background check, they could still get one from a private owner or a gun show. These laws simply don't do what they are intended to do. Criminals can still get guns if they want. All these laws do is make it harder for law-abiding citizens to get guns.
But this is not true, many gun enthusiast believe that the second amendment was created by the Founding Fathers to protect citizens from government tyranny. (Cothran) Thomas Jefferson being one of the Founding Fathers said, “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of firearms.” Why do people believe that stricter gun laws on private ownership will decrease the number of crimes in society? The fact of the matter is, criminals are more likely to attack a target who they know is unarmed and unprepared because they know that the victim will not put up a tough fight. If more Americans owned guns then attackers would be afraid to mug, rape, rob, and it would also prevent murders from happening. So why put a restriction on private gun ownership preventing the good guys from being able to protect themselves while the crooks are getting their weapons through black markets.
Background checks are a good thing to enforce when a person is trying to buy a gun to see if a person has a criminal record to even be trusted with a gun. It is possible that while doing so it will help diminish or prevent crime done with a firearm. Even if the government made it mandatory not every single person would obey that law. For example, Jacob Tyler Roberts who stole an AR-15 made by Stag Arms and killed two people in Portland, Oregon, he found a way to get ahold of a gun without by one legally and getting a background check. Richard Poplawski, an ex U.S. Marine who killed his mom, 3 police officers, and left another officer one wounded.
