", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future? In this paper, I hope to help the reader realize that Obama does not want to take our guns, but the actions we are taking now may not be the best decisions for the present or 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?
The gun control debate has been in the news a lot lately. Their are two clear sides to the debate. One side states that they don’t want their second amendment rights taken away. While the other side sees guns as dangerous and wants reforms set in place so that certain people can’t have access to them. Some are against reform that, “private citizens who own guns are constantly told by gun-control advocates that only fully trained government agents should be allowed to possess and use guns” (Krey 41).
Many are searching for the correct way to regulate dangerous or potentially dangerous weapons, by doing this they would make the ownership of them illegal (Hoxie 474). But is the... ... middle of paper ... ... that have guns. Even when violence is the factor it is why many believe that guns should be banned, guns should be allowed and not banned because of the rights that citizens have. The ethics and laws can occur with the current debates that get to meaningful points. The Supreme Court Cases continue to bring up how city bans on handguns break amendments, and this is how the topic has picked up from it (Hoxie 474).
Gun control is a highly controversial topic in the United States. There are many advocates of gun control - people who wish to have stricter laws to prevent certain groups of people from purchasing a firearm. However, there are also the people who disagree with gun control laws and believe there should be a more lenient gun control to furthermore help people defend themselves during risky situations. Many gun control laws have been passed for many years. While many have been passed, many have been voted unconstitutional meaning they affect the citizens second amendment rights.
The Ethics of Gun Control The phrase "Gun Control" means different things to different people. One bumper sticker states that "Gun Control means hitting your target." However one defines gun control, the mere mention of it brings controversy. Opposing sides have for years fought over the laws that govern firearms. For the purposes of this paper "Gun Control" is defined as policies enacted by the government that limit the legal rights of gun owners to own, carry, or use firearms, with the intent of reducing gun crimes such as murder, armed robbery, aggravated rape, and the like.
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.
And if so, do laws placing restrictions on firearm ownership and usage stop the crime or protect the citizens? These are the questions many citizens and lawmakers are asking themselves when creating gun control laws. Guns have been a part of American history for as long as people can remember. For most individuals guns are supposed to be very dangerous and unsafe; Though, that is not true. Guns can be hazardous, but only if they are in the wrong hands.
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.
(Clint Best) After Lanza committed this horrible act of violence people started to push the gun control laws more furiously. Lanza was thought to have asperger’s syndrome but this was never confirmed. Lanza opened the door for many gun lobbyists and vice versa for the gun control advocates. One way gun control advocates have tried to reduce the number of guns being issued to citizens of the United States of America is to require background checks. Background checks are performed on some weapons but they want a full background check for felonies, mental issues, proper classes, safety precautions to name a few.
“If you let one side give an inch it won’t stop until it has a mile.” (Babcock) He says that if you don’t have the two extremes in this debate then too much will be given to one side. I agree with this, but I think that there are many just reasons to own a firearm. I believe something needs to be done with the gun violence in the America I just don’t know actually what though. Should we abolish the Second Amendment in order to reduce gun violence in America? Even if all guns were taken away there would still be violent crimes in America.
