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.
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.
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.
Every American has a constitutional right to defend themselves and obtain ownership of any style of handgun, if they so choose to do so. Although, some may feel this is an outdated method of self-protection or hobby people such as congress and anti-gun activist who feel there is no need for a civilian to own any firearms. However, in the past few years there has been an ongoing war between the NRA (National Riffle Association) and congress to limit or ban the use or ownership of handguns. Some people think by disarming society, it will limit deadly altercations and fatalities of innocent people. (should there be more here ) Everyone has a right to own a handgun for either protection or a hobby and, congress does not have the right to alter and create new laws that would threaten a person’s right and decision of ownership.
None of these laws have decreased the amount of deaths caused by hand guns. The media also plays a part in more laws being passed against guns and ammo. The media helped have a bullet that pierces bullet- proof armor get banned, but the bullets were made specially for law enforcement and licensed dealers. All of these laws should be considered unconstitutional because it goes against the right to bare arms. So these gun control laws should be stopped.
This has been shown countless of times. (Reed Fred 2). The endless debating conflicts in death caused by guns are why many states in order to decrease the rate of violence should limit access to handguns. Once we all support the lost the ban or make purchasing a firearm extremely difficult the possibility for a criminal to purchase a firearm will be very rare and the crime rate will be able to
Many people believe our second amendment rights are being attacked, and that the government wants to take our guns away. It is my belief that Obama does not want to take our guns, but future administrations may use laws made today to do just that in the future. As more gun related tragedies occur in our country, the question has become "How can we reduce gun violence in our county? ", as opposed to "How can we take the peoples' guns away? ", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future?
I believe that gun ownership should be completely restricted. Guns only promote violence. Limiting who can buy guns can only do so much. Even running background checks, to determine who would be mentally stable to own a gun would not prevent someone who cannot obtain a firearm himself. “The fact that people with problematic criminal and mental histories can own semi automatic and automatic weapons means that we need more laws passed to limit gun ownership even further.”” Such things would only promote a person to find someone, such as a close relative, to get the the firearm they would choose to have.
Remember that” -Anonymous. As our world seems to grow increasingly violent, and mass shootings seem commonplace, many government leaders are pushing for certain gun laws that would ban the public from owning firearms of any sort. This is wrong, because as United States citizens, we have the right to bear arms. Despite a recent increase in gun violence within the United States, government leaders should not create laws which would restrict gun usage, should it involve magazine capacity, concealed carry, or the eradication of assault weapons for the public. Gun violence is studied to determine its causes and how to reduce it within society.
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
