Explain Why Guns Should Not Be Banned

Decent Essays
A recent shooting in Las Vegas by a man named Stephen Paddock, who killed 59 people including himself, recently sparked a debate. The debate? Banning or not banning guns. This article changed my thinking about gun control. I knew that people could carry guns around if they had a license, I thought this was ok to do. However, I now believe that no one should be able to carry guns on their person, except the police. I believe that any guns should be kept only at home, and only used when hunting. Though I see why some believe that guns should be banned, I believe that guns should not be banned. In the article, it says, “There is no good way to get Americans to voluntarily surrender their weapons. Asking them nicely just won’t do the trick.”
