However, expensive guns will do little to aid in the safety of Americans. Rather, criminals will be able to easily obtain weapons illegally, and the innocent civilians will be... ... middle of paper ... ... businesses as well. If guns were enforced or banned it would be the same thing, and profits would go through the roof for gangs and other criminals. Instead of trying to enforce gun control laws, the government should team with police and educate people on how to use gun properly and always call police for help. Never try to handle a situation yourself if you know someone will get hurt.
Although many people believe gun control laws would be beneficial and reduce crime, it is important to realize that criminals will still get weapons and in the end it is the American people who are being hurt by gun control laws- not criminals. In recent years, there have been numerous shootings that have raised concern over gun laws. People are shot and killed every day throughout the US and a portion of the population believes that gun laws would reduce the number of shootings. One of the more notable sho... ... middle of paper ... ...en to do the opposite of what they are intended to do, which is to decrease gun violence. The popular gun control debate has become more prominent because of the recent attacks that have been given large amounts of publicity.
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.
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.
“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. However, permitting or forbidding guns completely would lead to an excess of problems. We would be left in a situation such that, only law enforcement officials would have all the authority and the weapons to control us more. These facts pose this argument, but it would be in the best interests to ban gun ownership, as crime rate and death rate would both decrease
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.
We need to find a way to make it harder for guns to fall into the wrong hands. There are actually two sides to every problem: some want to solve by taking guns away and some think we should just make smarter gun laws. One side of the agreement believes that guns don’t kill people, people do, just like when there are car accidents the driver killed the victim not the car, and that we should not make any major law changes and the other side thinks that without guns the problem would be solved, they think that the gun is the reason why we have shooting. One of the problems is that of the last few shootings have been in gun-free zones such as schools and Government buildings. For instance, in the Sandy Hook shooting, the shooter was in a school which is a gun free zone.
This is why people should be allowed to own and carry guns. This allows them to protect themselves from those kinds of people. Proper education in school and other places to teach how to use a gun and to respect guns as a dangerous weapon is what is needed to reduce gun violence in the future. If we allow the government to ban guns the American people will be defenseless and powerless to stop the government from taking over or to stop an outside invasion if either were to occur. This country was born because the citizens were armed and could fight for themselves.
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.
Gun Control in America is seen as ineffective, citizens believe gun control laws in place are not protecting lives, but taking them away. In order to solve this problem, many think more laws should be put in place. By doing so, they believe guns would no longer be in the hands of criminals and lives would not be ended before their time. In Christine Watkins’s article, “Stronger Gun Control Will Save Lives” She explains that if guns were objects that truly kept us safe, America would be the safest country in the world. She also states that a gun in any home is more likely to be mistreated, causing an accidental shooting.
