Gun control has been a big topic for the past decade in the united states. These debates will rise and fall time in and time out after something horrific happens in the state. Anti-Gun supporters do not realize that it is extremely difficult to regulate something in the states that is a big portion of our economy.Would stricter gun laws change anything? So far statistically It has been proven otherwise one must consider how a citizen would defend themselves when they are faced with terror. How will they defend themselves if there are restrictions on guns? It seems that some states that have stricter gun laws are where the most shootings and also where more terrorists attack take place. It seems that gun control is only pushed when shootings gradually get worse and worse. But why are these anti gun groups not speaking up when police brutality happens or when a racial hate crime occurs? Anti-Gun groups do not look at the bigger picture and try to understand that it is more than guns. Gun control almost plays Zero role in murders
The United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number across the globe. The current public gun control debate in the United States seems to be placed on standby until it is sparked up by a major mass shooting. There were at least 126 mass shootings between January 2000 and July 2014.(pro). Opponents of more gun laws accuse supporters of using a horrific event to further a lost cause, saying that more laws would not have prevented the shootings. Advocates of more gun control often want more laws to try to prevent the mass shootings and call for smart gun laws and background checks . Pew Research Center did
Americans realize that the 10 Amendments produce the Bill of Rights which were made to prohibit government powers from infracturing the basic individual liberties; therefore, the changing of one of the Amendments would offset the basic individual liberties granted by the founding fathers. Countless U.S. news stations and support groups portray the mass shootings, gun violence, other gun propaganda, or naturally the use guns, as a scapegoat to support gun control. Guns do not harm people--people hurt people (And I have no doubt that this has been aforementioned extensively) however; the implementation of gun control in the U.S. will diminish the 2nd Amendment--the right to bare arms--as well as prevent the citizens the right to protect
When one comes to count on the pros and cons of gun control there comes many points in mind, one of them being diminished murders by guns: There is some trustworthiness to the possibility that substitution systems for crime by firearm are less deadly and hence diminishment or expulsion of weapons ought to decrease manslaughter rates marginally. The issue is whether somebody needs you dead sufficiently awful they tend to ensure they completed the employment and in spots where weapon bans have become effective they have had no measurably critical
One main issue in the Americas is the problem of gun control and if guns should be allowed. Many Americans will argue that since it is allowed in the Second Amendment there should be no argument that the people should be allowed to own guns. Others will say there should be gun control because many crimes committed are with guns. On the other hand it could be seen as criminals still finding some way of getting guns albeit through smuggling or some other way of obtaining guns which would lead to more issues because Americans wouldn 't be able to defend themselves. The issue of gun control has been a very controversial topic and has been going on for many years.
Ever since the 2nd Amendment was ratified, gun control has been a flaming topic of debate in America. The politics surrounding this debate could affect the lives of millions of Americas who already own firearms. Americans are looking for information regarding what a conceal carry permit is and how to obtain a conceal- carry permit so that they may formulate their own opinions on the issue. Investigating further, citizens are confused with the numerous conceal-carry permit classes, instructional courses, and the background checks of carriers. Who is allowed to apply? Where shall they be allowed to carry? Using data gathered from a multitude of sources, the average citizen might form a new frame of reference concerning this topic with
The issue of gun is always controversial. Firearm can be used as defending or an assaulting weapon. In United States, firearm increase the rate of homicide, suicide and gun violence, which can harm and murder people. Moreover, taking away people’s gun will not work effectively because the murder and criminal will find another ways to get guns. Also, the black market will appear for the people who cannot get guns from regulated markets. In addition, if regulated guns are banned, murderers may use other tools as weapon including pencil, knife, and a car. The government should not take away the gun from gun owners, while increasing the difficulty of the background check to screen gun buyers is the most effective way. In fact, most people do not want to give up a weapon that can defend their family and property in the long history of legalized gun of United States. Gun control or heavily regulated gun laws is not suitable for residents because people need firearm to protect their family, self-defense, and against the murderers who may often seek buying illegal guns from black market. Firearm can be used as protection in our life.
“We the people in order to form a more perfect union.” This is the beginning of the infamous Preamble of the United States Constitution. The Constitution is the one and only document this great country’s foundation was built upon. The Preamble is one of the few parts of the Constitution that many Americans know, and can even often recite the entire thing, however, the remanding part is often looked over and unknown. One part, a very important one, is the second amendment. This amendment states that “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of the Free State, their right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” (The NRA). This one, small part of the Constitution gives Americans the right to keep and bear Arms, and has been under fire in more recent years. Not only are many American citizens demanding to amend this amendment, the Government has stepped over it completely, all in the hopes to abolish the use of guns among American citizens. The Founding Fathers put each and every part of The Constitution in place for a reason; to protect the American people’s rights. The issue with gun bans is that they prevent the citizens who properly register and use their firearms, from the having the ability to use them for self defense, giving the advantage to the criminals (Strossel). Gun control laws fail to protect not only individuals, but America as a whole, as the laws are ineffective, and inadequately allow self
In the United States today there are many different policy issues that are associated with individual’s different hobbies and interests, and lots of these policy issues have some legal components to them. For me a policy issue that comes to mind would be Gun Control, because I am a gun owner who is a supporter of the second amendment. With shootings and other gun related trouble happening all over our country those who create and maintain our gun laws have a big responsibility to take care of. The policy issue of gun control has both people who support the right to bear arms, while there are others who think all guns should be done away with, and this dispute should be something people care about in a legal context.
Gun control can be a very touchy subject for most people. But there’s no doubt that it’s something we hear about quite often. Especially with the elections occurring, and all the recent shootings and massacres. But what exactly is gun control, and who does it affect? In this essay I will be exploring exactly what gun control is, I will review both sides, and then examine who it affects.
These days there are many different controversial topics for example, one of these topics is the current situation gun control and whether it should be more or less strict about its rules. I believe that the United States government should increase the amount of gun laws to a federal level so that it would affect all of the states. By doing so it would make it more difficult to attain to guns and it can be kept out of the hands of the wrong people and the black market. By making it more difficult to attain a gun to a certain point people would not want to even purchase one and the more guns that are kept out of the hand of the wrong people and the black market the number of crime and gun related deaths will go down. When guns ended up in the wrong hands incidents like the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting (S. H. Shooting), the Colorado movie theater shooting (C. T. Shooting), and the Virginia Tech shooting happens (Shootings). If we are able to make the current gun control laws stricter we could prevent future travesties like them from occurring.
The controversy surrounding the need for more gun control in the United States is a hot topic. Do we need more gun control? What about the 2nd Amendment? What about crime, protection, the mentally ill? There is a great amount of gun violence in this country and every time something happens, the argument starts up again. Maybe it is time to do more. Adam Gopnik wrote about this subject in his essay “Shootings”. His view is that there needs to be better gun control laws.
There hardly exists a more divisive issue in the political and media landscape across the United States currently than that of gun control. Advocates on either side of the issue are quick to voraciously fight for what they believe, as well as to tear down anyone who sees the issue differently. But unlike other issues, it seems that gun control advocacy does not rest on a spectrum; either you are pro-gun control or you are against it, and anyone caught in the middle is likely to get flak from both sides. But why is the issue of gun control such a hot topic? And why is it that there seems to be no room for compromise? The reason the issue of gun control is so heated is because it’s not just another frenzied debate; it’s a battle.
Gun Control is problem that has developed recently in our society. Gun control is not one issue, but many. To some people gun control is a crime issue, to others it is a rights issue. Gun control is a safety issue, an education issue, and a political issue, among others. Within each of these issues there are those who want more gun control legislation and those who do not want. Everyone has a different view.
As the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” However, President Obama addressed a call to limit gun violence in January 2016 due to the tragedies caused by gun violence happened in the past. Gun control has always been a controversial issue in the U.S. While some people claim it is a constitutional right for citizens to carry guns to defend themselves, others argue that guns are more likely to cause harms to people rather than protecting them. During my online research, I have found two primary sources, an advertisement and a gun control policy, advocating for gun control, and a cartoon against gun control, all adopting different strategies and from different perspectives. The advertisement and the cartoon both aim to arise emotional feelings to the audience, while the gun control policy tends to convince the audience through the logical structure. Nevertheless, the advertisement and the cartoon are relatively weak in logos, while the policy has some weaknesses in pathos.
