Gun-control advocates think that outlawing guns would have stopped the killing from ever happening. Pro-gun advocates think that it would have been stopped by innocent people being armed and fighting back. In order for an issue to even be at hand, both sides must agree that there is a problem with guns and gun control. Both gun-control and pro-gun advocates do agree there is a problem, pro-gunners say it is too hard to own a gun and the gun-controllers say it is too easy to get a gun.

Some government officials think guns should be fully legal, other think it should be illegal and that all guns should be taken away from the people. This is a huge ongoing rights debate, because both sides have solid platforms and dedicated members. I believe people should have gun rights, having a gun to protect your rights as a person and as a citizen of the United States is a necessary evil to keep the peace. Taking away the rights citizens have to own guns will result in more violence and will create a bigger issue, because the people using their guns legally for protection will be left unprotected from other people who take advantage of the law and will use an illegal gun to commit a crime. The right to own a gun has evolved over the years.
They feel that most people—excluding certain groups of people, such as criminals should be able to buy a gun with little trouble and without a waiting period.

Gun Control Guns can be used to control violence, Guns cause violence, Guns can ensure peace; Guns can destroy peace but should gun regulations be tightened to prevent national gun- related crimes? As the world changes and technology advances our natural born rights will never change because it is the base that holds our country together. Thereforth law-abiding citizens should be able to have guns because of the second amendment, right to insulate as long as there are more critical background checks. If we allowed every american to carry a gun legally in public it may cause a reduction in crime because potential criminals might not follow through with their crime if the gun is not hidden. but if it is and a law is passed allowing it criminals will not know who will be carrying a firearm.
Guns in America are accepted as long as you are of age and have a permit to legally carry a firearm. The issue of that the US government have no idea of the reasoning why the buyers are equipping these guns, with those guns being handed in to the private hands of American citizens its only by faith what those people will do with this firearm. According to Reno (1993) in Promising strategies, To Reduce Gun Violence, “In 1996 (the most recent year for which are available), 34,00 people died from gunfire in the United States. Of these deaths, approximately 54 percent resulted from suicide, 41 percent resulted from homicide, and 3 percent were unintentional.” (Section I).

Gun Control is not the Answer, Gun Rights are Merriam-Webster defines gun control as; the regulation of the selling, owning and the use of guns. The high advance of this argument corresponds to the high increase of violence and problems related to firearm use. While some believe that gun control would help eliminate mass shootings and save lives, there are others who know that guns are not the problem.

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.
