To have gun control throughout the nation means violating a person’s constitutional rights. Although people feel like taking away guns will limit crime, this issue should not exist due to the fact that guns are needed and necessary for self -defense against crime. Enforcing gun control is violating a citizen’s second amendment right to bear arms. This goes to show that throughout history governments have seemed to have sided with their citizens, although in reality the governments have seemed to have sided with their authority to remove liberties. The people’s right to bear arms is our only defense against the onslaught of oppressive government tyranny.
The fight to ban gun control is going to be a difficult one. Gun control laws just take guns away from law-abiding citizens. There are many reasons why people want to own a gun. Don’t keep letting the government keep making it harder for us to won a gun, everyone is a lot safer when they own a gun and follow the laws. The second amendment clearly states “the right to bear arms”, don’t let the government try to change that.
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. The Unites States Constitution states that, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” This timele... ... middle of paper ... ...nderstanding Controversy and Society.

", 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?
Gun Control in America I do not believe there is a need for more gun control in the United States. Gun control is strict enough. Gun control law is designed to impose legal measures to license, control, or restrict the ownership of firearms by members of the public. By strengthening the gun laws you are only hurting the average citizen who has the right to bear arms. They should do background checks for any mental illnesses, past criminal activity including petty crime, and whether or not they contribute to the community.
The answer is simple, they can’t. There must be an end to gun control, its problems significantly outweigh any good intentions it has, and besides there is no doubt about it, America is a safer place when the citizens are able to own firearms. Not all Americans understand what gun control really is and the useless intentions that it imposes. Gun control consists of laws and regulations that prohibit certain people from owning a firearm and establish waiting periods on the sales of firearms. In some instances, firearms are totally banned.
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).
but if it is and a law is passed allowing it criminals will not know who will be carrying a firearm. David Kopel stated, “Data showing that laws allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a gun legally in public may cause reductions in crime because potential criminals do not know who might be carrying a firearm” (Kopel,”The Gun Fight”). If the United States passed a nation-wide law that all law-abiding citizens, with extensive background checks could carry their registered firearm in public and it may cause a reductions in crimes such as armed robberies and kidnapping but the most dangerous mass shooting, but what happens when pro-gun control advocates claim that guns kill people? It is the person the physical act of killing someone that is valid not the object itself. it is the persons thought of firing the gun all citizens have the natural born rights to the right to bear arms.
The Guns Are Not The Problem “A free people ought to be armed.”- George Washington After the tragic incident at Sandy Hook many were for the banning of firearms in the US; however, after our government has enforced gun safety laws shootings continue to occur. Guns have existed in the United States for a very long time and have affected the course of history. We the people of the United States have the right to bear arms. Our leaders believe that removing them from the country will lead to a better and safer country; however, I am here to tell you otherwise. Banning guns in the US is a terrible idea because it will not keep guns out of the hands of criminals, it will hurt law abiding citizens, and most importantly may leave citizens at the hands of a tyrannical government.
Guns are weapons that meant to protect as well as to hurt. Volker Ter Haseborg’s article, “Your Gun Violence Scares Me” explains his position on gun control in the United States. From his experience living in a country where gun control is enforced strictly, is surprised at how many Americans can have access to a firearm. He explains that gun control should be enforced since many Americans are dying everyday due to guns. His reason for this article is that shootings seem regular and don’t shock people easily until it gets to the point where people are getting shot on Television.
