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?
They believe that by doing this, crimes would perish, and the wounds of the victims would mend; but they’re wrong. Gun control would not be an effective solution in making America a better and peaceful place, because guns can still be obtained illegally, it would hurt the American economy, and would strip the rights of the citizens. Gun control would never work, because guns can still be obtained illegally. Even though laws can be made to prevent bad people from obtaining guns, guns are everywhere and it can fall into the wrong hands easily. Jay Watchel, an agent from Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF), said that one o... ... middle of paper ... ...en stop its sales on the market, guns can still be obtained illegally.
It is extremely important to pay attention to where gun control laws are headed. The directions they take not only affect our nation and society but our future... ... middle of paper ... ...guns help limit crime to a minimum. But the problem is the news and media doesn’t show the positive side of gund and how it prevents crimes, they only show the “bad” side of it, which terrifies people and puts thought in peoples head of guns being bad. At the end of the day it’s bull and it’s the government making publicity stunts to mess with people’s head. It is clear from the number of groups involved that the debate over gun control will not soon fade.
Looking back to laws, making more laws will not work because individuals will break the rules. Many will not stop until they own a gun, legally or illegally. Even though, some individuals do not favor the right to own a gun, owning a gun will determine the live or death of an individual by making sure the individual is safe. Having the right to own guns might help save more people’s lives because a gun will be a really good source of protection. In terms of the gun debate in America, individuals should prioritize personal liberty because having more guns people might feel more safe and protected.
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.
I don’t necessarily think that gun ownership should be completed prohibited. In order to make the United States safer, stricter gun laws should be placed. With more gun laws comes less gun tragedies such as mass shootings and accidental shootings. Although many people believe that placing gun laws on American’s is an act against our own personal freedom and “right to bear arms” in the long run we should be thinking more about how to reduce the amount of tragedies that happen every year in the United States. Surely, if your own family member or friend was involved in such violent acts as these, you would feel much safer if gun laws were in place.
The second amendment reads: "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 means that each person has the right to protect themselves. Many people try to speculate about what our Founding Fathers' meant by "A well-regulated Militia". They try to fight that gun ownership was only meant for the purpose of defending our nation. 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.
The answer is that it wont help. Even if guns are banned what's to that people won't but the guns illegally. In this world people will always find a way to get what they want even if that way is illegal. Another reason gun control is bad is that s goes against everything in the constitution. Our founding fathers wanted us to be able to defend ourselves and have the right to own guns.
Law won 't work either because we will have to keep coming up with more solutions that won 't solve the problem the world has with guns.One reason, gun control will not work because it will not stop people mainly criminals from obtaining guns. Guns are not the leading cause of death and it not the only thing that kills. Under the constitution, a citizen has the "Right to bear arms", which was set forth as means for one to protect themselves and their

" The debate about gun control is a global issue. However, it is more intense in the United States of America than any other region (‘Gun Control’ par 1). The groups against gun control show concern about violent crime and they don’t perceive gun control is the answer to violence committed using guns.
