Although people want to blame all the violence in the world on guns, law abiding citizens have a right to purchase and own guns and that should not be restricted. Many Americans believe that having a Gun Makes them feel safer and more confident about being able to protect not only themselves But more importantly their loved ones as well. Eliminating gun is bad idea. ” The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”-Walter LaPierre Vice president of the National Rifle Association. As a U.
S citizen it is a right to keep and bear arms. People use guns for protection and self defense for people who are assaulted.it goes for every single person regardless there gender.There is a lot of women that live alone. There is a higher chance of women getting raped ,assaulted or rodded than man. I believe that every single woman those who live alone , and those who have children to care for should have a firearm to protect themselves and their loved ones. Women are not as strong as men so in the event that a woman is attacked by a man , a gun would give her a chance to defend herself or scare of the attack. According to the recent Gallup polls ¨62 percent of adults believe having gun in there homes will make them feel safer an 56 percent think this country will be safer if more people carried concealed weapons¨ (pertheweek.
com) . This research shows that more than 50 percent of adults in personally believe that it better to have a gun for protection and not need it than and not to have one at all. Not only owning a gun in america make a law abiding citizen feel safe , it is our right as stated in the 2nd amendment . Being able to keep and bear arms is one of the oldest laws that this country was built upon. ¨?he founder intended the second amendment to function as a citizen check against overreach in the event that the government started to take civil right in the constitution”(gosar.house.
gov) eliminating guns violents the second amendment making a ban on guns is unconstitutional.By eliminating guns/or banning gun in this country goes against what the founders of this country intended for law abiding citizens ¨Well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state , the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not infringed.¨ – (The 2nd Amendment. december 15,1791 the bill of right (the first ten amendments of the constitution). I personally feel a lot more focus should be on figuring out ways to keep guns away from criminals, not the citizens who can legally own guns.
The government should put stricter laws on gun companies in the U.S and also stricter laws on importing gun in the U.S. There are other avenues in which the government can take before even eliminating citizens from being able to own a legal gun.
Gun control does not desire crime. When guns are taken away crime increases. .
In the city of new orleans and chicago and las angeles guns laws are very strict and gun rate is at the highest it has ever been. With a ban of legal guns ,the amount of illegal firearms will increase.it is already easy to obtain a gun illegally and gun control can results in similar methods of obtaining guns illegally like they did when the united states banned alcohol ¨laws seeking to keep handguns out of the hands of criminals , juveniles and mental defective have failed to reduce crime because active criminales either have guns already or can steal them.¨(www.hmhco.com) this tells us that would be almost be impossible to get all the illegal guns off the streets and out of hands of bad people. If criminals will still be able to get there hands on guns illegally ,why ban the legal rights of law abiding citizens.
Even tho i am against gun control , there are a few reasons others may be for it. A lot of people believe that firearm to the public means more violent crimes some believe that owning a gun increases a person’s risk of killed by a gun. Many believe that guns are to blame for most of the kills in society . not many believe firearms don’t kill people.most of the illegal guns of course. There are arguments about people with mental illnesses are able to purchase firearms in the united states. There should be a restrictionOn there identification cards or there drivers license if they have one that way they should not be able to purchase certain items because they have a mental illness.
some believe there are other ways to buy guns and the stores that sales them are not efficient with checking who they are selling to. Being said that they are simply trying to make a sale. Other believe that firearm should be eliminated because it may reduce the massive kills and also the unsolved homicides by illegal firearms as well.
There was a segment on the news about children playing with guns and accidentally killing themselves a relative. I have also read a story in a paper about people killing themself most people who are getting rid of guns are people who have probably been through something that had to do with a gun murder. There are some people that don’t like the idea of firearms because they believe they promote death and violence. the united states of america prefer being able to own firearms and have them in their homes.
