Just because there will be regulations and gun safety involved does not mean that all of society will abide by it. People will disobey the system, and that means not everyone out there who has weapons knows the safety precautions. It is already dangerous enough that people have guns illegally. Putting guns in the hands of all of society will create a greater problem then there already is. Creating strict laws with harsh punishments to ban guns will force society to get rid of their weapons and to help make a safer country.
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.
This is why people say guns should be enforced heavily and avoided especially, if possible. Some also say that guns are used mostly for harming or hurting other people, but most Americans look at their guns as safety tools for their families. Stripping that away would leave a family susceptible to a burglary. Some say that if expensive guns are made, the violence will stop and crime rate will drop. However, expensive guns will do little to aid in the safety of Americans.
It is setup to take guns away from the legal, law abiding citizens. Not the illegal, scumbags that use the fire arms to harm innocent people. My side on gun control is that I’m against it. I believe that the motive behind it a great thing, but the people making the laws for it don’t know what they’re doing. All the violence currently in the united states and mass shotting are a real problem.
Shooters go for the defenseless for they can not fight back. Those lives are lost and can never be brought back, they can be protected. If before a murderous intention gunman opens fire upon innocent defenseless civilians, what if someone was armed and could take the gun man down before all those lives are taken. Now imagine the devastation if no one was armed except for a murderous gunman and how many lives would be lost. We have gun laws, we have an Amendment to give us our right to own and use a gun, as well as good law obeying citizen who are responsible and can protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Gun control is a leading concern in America today. Recent shootings and murders today have people scared and pushing forward for gun control acts. In my opinion there should not be gun control acts on any guns besides automatic guns because, automatic guns should strictly be for military use only. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Many people push for gun control, but the effects of gun control are too severe.
They want to take guns away from criminals, and pass legislation to do so, but so far their plans have backfired and ripped guns from the hands of responsible, law abiding citizens. What these gun control people don’t understand is how a criminal thinks, a criminal is a criminal armed or not. They both break the law, so what makes them think that a criminal won’t break the law to carry a gun. Also criminals don’t attack other criminals, they attack the honest citizen, I wonder if this is because they know that most likely their fellow criminals are in fact armed and the citizens are not. This is a result of the latest legislation from Mr. Bill Clinton himself.
There are people who favor banning high capacity magazines because they are too powerful for citizens. ProCon.org published the article “Should Gun Control Laws Be Enacted?”. This article lists the pros and cons of gun control. It provides evidence under each argument for support. The article states, “High-capacity magazines should banned because they too often turn murder into mass murder.
Although, on almost a daily basis, there seems to be news stories about shootings and killing’s throughout America by criminals and people with mental issues, it seems that only law abiding gun owners are going to suffer the most by any new gun restricting laws that may be passed by lawmakers in the United States. Excessive gun control would take away the rights of law abiding citizens to protect themselves and their property. It could also effect the recreational use of guns, and would not keep guns from criminals. Taking guns away from people would make it harder for them to protect themselves and their property. If an intruder was to come into a person’s home, and if guns were outlawed due to excessive gun control, then that person would have to protect themselves by some other means.
There are gun control laws to try and reduce the number of violent shootings that occur. They are trying to put limits on weapons that Americans can own. The government is trying to take our guns away mainly because of people that are criminally insane. Most of the people who commit crimes don’t even have the weapons legally. If the government takes away the rights of people who are allowed to have firearms in their possession, it will most definitely cause an outrage.
