Under a strict Gun Control law, when a holdup happens, the attacker is less likely to have a gun, and even if the attacker did somehow obtain a firearm, the victim would not have one to use carelessly and get himself killed. Crimes with Gun Control will be much less violent for the people that obey the law, and most criminals will be deterred from even attempting a crime if they cannot buy a gun. Similarly, Gun Control will help prevent terrorism of this country. Terrorism, now a big issue for the United States, can be prevented in many cases if Gun Control laws are put into affect. Many terrorists use easily concealed guns that come from the United States, getting the guns from either exportation or in the country.
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.
In the US, recently there have been a lot of crimes that included some type of firearm. The violence in the US will not be stopped by gun regulations. Gun regulations will make it harder for people to obtain guns, but that won’t matter with criminals. Criminals don’t follow the law so regulations will not affect them. The most gun regulations can do is slow down a criminal, everyone is driven by something and criminals are after something and some won’t stop unless they have what they need.
Gun Control in the United States Gun control is a very heated issue within the country. There are advocates for both sides for wanting stricter gun control and less gun control. Firearms are such a big part of American history that it has been included in our constitution as one of our inalienable rights. The people who want stricter gun control believe that making it harder to get guns and limiting the types of guns people can use makes everyone safer since there’s less firearms in the public. Those who want more lax gun laws believe that it acts as a deterrent and as a safety measure to protect innocent citizens and themselves.
And the government thinks laws outlawing guns will prevent people from obtaining guns illegally? Not a chance. Obviously, the solution is to not take guns away from responsible citizens. Not only does gun control disarm citizens, but it also increases the crime rate. Many people believe that with stricter gun control laws, there will be less crime because less people will have access to guns.
The belief that enforcing stricter gun laws on those who use guns for good(gun owners who protect themselves, their families, and potentially prevent crimes) will keep guns off the streets(from those who buy guns off the black market rather than a gun store – obviously requiring no permit, no background check, etc) is very foolish. If this method were actually effective, then illegal drugs would not be an issue. Vilifying gun owners by imposing gun restrictions make it tougher for registered, law abiding gun owners from purchasing firearms and does nearly nothing to prevent real criminals from acquiring them. Is gun control the solution to deterring heinous acts and creating less crime? Gun control is legislation that is specifically aimed at imposing measures to make it harder for an individual to acquire a firearm.
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.
In the United States many people believe gun control will decrease the amount of crime, but gun control merely takes guns away from citizens who use firearms for protection; taking away people’s rights to carry a gun will not stop a criminal from obtaining a weapon. There has been studies shown that gun control does not decrease the crime rate. Criminals do not need a gun to harm someone, a criminal can use anything to hurt someone. Making gun control more strict is depriving citizens of their rights. Making gun control laws more strict is leaving citizens helpless if they do not have any means of protection against a would-be shooter.
In America, guns are getting out of control and causing so many problems. What people usually say today is “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”. However, people are getting guns way too easy which gun control needs to be enforced. Gun control finally started to be a main concern for America; therefore stricter gun restrictions can help guns from actually be less of a problem. If gun control is stricter than before, maybe it will lower the deaths and violence that are caused by guns.
One of the things that seems to get added to every state's gun laws is extensive background checks. This seems very important to limiting gun violence because you are limiting who is able to have access to guns. With limited access to insane people or criminals, you are leaving guns in the hands of "good" citizens that ar... ... middle of paper ... ...roblem, folks, is the guns. Absent the guns, the loners who have shot up schools and shopping malls might have gotten out of control, but they would not have been able to go on shooting sprees" (Kuttner). That goes to show that without guns, you wouldn't have any gun violence.
