", but are the laws that the Obama administration are attempting to make paving the way for Americans being disarmed in the future? In this paper, I hope to help the reader realize that Obama does not want to take our guns, but the actions we are taking now may not be the best decisions for the present or the future. The majority of the time that gun control is discussed, you will hear points made such as "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Anti-gun-control lobbyists argue that Obama blames mass shootings, homicides, and suicides on guns. Is Obama placing blame in the wrong place?
Some are against reform that, “private citizens who own guns are constantly told by gun-control advocates that only fully trained government agents should be allowed to possess and use guns” (Krey 41). The pro gun reform advocates see this because of the number of shootings that have happened in the past years. They also attribute our violent culture to one of the reasons the shooting rates have gun up. The pro gun reform advocates have used different outlets throughout the media to get their message out and try to start a movement, in which they are trying to get the public to have the same view point as them. This goes for the pro gun reform and anti gun reform groups.
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.
Gun control is a topic that stirs a strong opinion from the general public. Gun control is the effort to regulate or control usage and sales of guns. The right to bear arms is granted to all Americans by the Second Amendment and many consider it essential to maintain order in the United States of America. Even though this was the Second Amendment right granted to citizens in the Bill of Rights, many Americans opt not to own a gun, and others would like for this right to be abolished altogether. Both sides of this issue have a good argument, but when further researched, there are many more details that come up explain why siding against gun control is a better conclusion for the United States and its people.
As George Washington once said “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined”. Have we shown ourselves to be disciplined enough to have the right to bear arms or have we not, which would explain the massive gun control laws that have passed and been attempted to be approved here in the U.S. Gun control has become a huge controversial issue in the U.S. with the passing of many Gun control laws which lead many U.S. citizens believe to be unconstitutional. It has been estimated that out of every one hundred Americans approximately 88 own a gun, and an estimated eleven thousands deaths involving a fire arm occurred in 2013. A recent study by Harvard Medical school and school of public health show that states with stricter gun control laws work in reducing gun related homicides and suicides.
The government is using our society’s violent incidents as cover to place restrictions and bans on firearms. This essay’s purpose is to provide proof that buying and owning firearms is our legal constitutional right and that our government is trying to attack the wrong angle when trying to fight crime involving guns in the United States. If we take a closer look into the U.S. Constitution, you will find that James Madison stated in Federalist 46 that the people need to have access to the same weapons the military has access to, incase of the event of a tyrannical uprising, the people would not be forced into government oppression. Now some people’s rebuttal to that is saying something along the lines of “well our founding fathers had no idea what AR15’s were at that time”. If we take that statement and apply it to other amendments of the constitution, our... ... middle of paper ... ...takes time to educate and promote safe gun practices and competency with firearms.
Guns with this kind of power are illegal for imports, and that should be a reason for people not to use them, but how are they getting into the country? Obama has the power to make the Gun Control Act of 1968 stronger so the police can confiscate the ones found, but what’s stopping him? To reiterate, another law that could be passed would be to tighten background checks. Obama then proceeded to say that background checks needed to be strengthened because it’s described to be “the filter that’s supposed to stop the wrong people” from getting guns (4 Ways
President Obama has been coming up with very comprehensive plans to prevent gun violence in the U.S. This paper will inform you about the very controversial topic of guns and whether or not we should have stricter gun laws. Gun laws should have harsher punishment for violators. I say this because, gun bans are already existent and don't work. People disregard these laws as if it doesn’t apply to them.
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.
Those for increased gun-control do not believe that the state and federal government enforce enough policies for control, are pro-gun control. Those for gun-control believe that stricter laws can prevent the loss of countless, innocent individuals lives. For example, they believe had these preventative laws been enforced previously, shootings like the Colorado theater shooting, the Columbine school shooting, and the Sandy Hook tragedy would have been avoided. **State statistics, and political support groups, etc** Those for anti gun-control believe that as American citizens we have the right to bear arms. If those rights were taken away, it would infringe upon the ability to pro... ... middle of paper ... ...es of the public are being trampled on by the agenda of the media which is cause for concern, considering its mass influence.
