Gun control is an awfully big issue in the United States today. Many people in America don’t agree with the gun control laws that they have today. Gun control laws only take guns and freedom away from law-abiding citizens. Many citizens have their own reasons for owning a gun. Why would the government want to make it harder for people to own a gun?
The power to defend yourself is the reason that people have guns. The government should not ban rifles, shotguns, and handguns, because the truth is, there is no reason to take away guns as long as there are criminals out there waiting for that to happen. Let’s take a look at what gun control laws are in effect right now. In North Carolina, you can own a rifle or a shotgun without a permit. You can own a handgun after completing a thorough background check (which includes making sure that you aren’t insane and that you aren’t a convicted felon, among other things), and it is illegal to own a machine gun.
Never try to handle a situation yourself if you know someone will get hurt. In conclusion, enforcing gun laws would not be the best solution in reducing violence in the United States. Educating people and telling them to always contact police if they cannot handle a situation is always the best option. Guns provide protection and can save a family from a home break in or protect a store owner late at night from robbers who may threaten him or her for money. Not only are guns protected in the constitution, but they are also a part of the American tradition.
Mental health is huge problem in the United States, especially when it allows certain individuals to have access to firearms. Politicians should aim to work more on keeping guns out of the hands of those who seek to harm others, not the law abiding citizens. But this is no easy task. In the CNN article, The real gun problem is mental health, not the NRA, the author, Mel Robbins, points how the mental health problem is to blame , not the gun. Robbins states "Next time there 's a mass shooting, don 't jump to blame the National Rifle Association and lax gun laws.
Gun Control in the United States Gun control is a very heated issue within the country. There are advocates for both sides for wanting stricter gun control and less gun control. Firearms are such a big part of American history that it has been included in our constitution as one of our inalienable rights. The people who want stricter gun control believe that making it harder to get guns and limiting the types of guns people can use makes everyone safer since there’s less firearms in the public. Those who want more lax gun laws believe that it acts as a deterrent and as a safety measure to protect innocent citizens and themselves.
Many people have guns in their homes and they all say it is for “protection”, but no one can honestly say that the weapon killing young people is a good means of protection. As a nation and a society, all of us today should stand up for what is right. Do not give teens the opportunity to handle a gun. Handguns should be illegal under any circumstances. Gun poses as a high danger in our world, even though guns seem necessary, but the negative values of guns are overruling the positive values.
Why Gun Control Won't Work Gun control is a very controversial subject now days in politics. My personal view on gun control is that it will never work. I'm am just fore warning you that this paper may be a little bias, but I'll try to give views from both sides. Many gun control activists believe that the solution is simple; ban all guns and there won't be any crimes committed with guns. Obviously this is not the answer but there are people that believe this would work.
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.
Gun control has been a controversial issue for years. A vast majority of citizens believe that if gun control is strictly enforced it would quickly reduce the threat of crime. Many innocent people feel they have the right to bear arms for protection, or even for the pleasure of hunting. These people are penalized for protecting their lives, or even for enjoying a common, innocent sport. To enforce gun control throughout the nation, means violating a persons Constitutional rights.
Why would the government want to make it harder for people to own a gun? People that own guns aren’t very likely to be attacked by criminals. Owning a handgun is one of the best ways of protection when used correctly. The second amendment states “the right to bear arms”; does this grant everyone the right to own a gun? Gun control laws have not been proven to do anything for citizens.
