Why Guns Should Be Banned

Good Essays
Protection of oneself and one’s family is important. For American’s to feel safe and to be safe, they feel as if they need weapons. These weapons are guns, the bad thing about guns is that they are usually blamed for all of the violence in the world. Guns are not the problem though, it is the people with the guns that are. They obtain them illegally and cause harm to the people around them. This was not the original purpose for guns, guns were used to protect what people want to protect. Banning guns would not reduce the crime rate in America, since criminals and psychos obtain weapons illegally anyway, all the government would be doing is preventing citizens from getting guns to protect themselves. If the government decides to ban guns, they …show more content…
After obtaining guns, children and adults collect them and proceed to improve their accuracy in shooting, but getting rid of them would make the world a dangerous place. Many people who believe that guns are the leading cause of death in the United States, are incorrect. A gun is not a person, it has no feelings nor can it move on its own it cannot be personified nor be blamed for any of the actions. A gun must be wielded by a person and that person is the one responsible for pulling the trigger. If guns were banned and somehow a criminal couldn’t get his hand on one illegally, they can still kill. A rock would even suffice as a weapon to end someone’s life. Cain killed Able with a rock! If the government wants to band guns, are they going to band knifes? Rocks? A person can even be killed with another’s hand, strangulation. So why are guns being blamed for murders? That makes absolutely no sense and that’s because people are misinformed about guns. People need to be informed. Little things like toy-guns that look too much like the actual thing have been banned. Why is this? Easy, civilization is worried that their kids would become too influenced by toy guns and want something to do with real guns (Firearm Laws.) Yet, toy guns are still produced for children to play with, they just don’t look as real or have the same parts as guns. The more an adult bans something from their children the more that they want to know about them and use them. Guns are the same, children and young adults are curious. All of humanity are curious. They are unsure of what lies ahead but go ahead and explore it despite others warnings. Guns should be taught to children and young teens so that they are knowledgeable about them. The more knowledge that people have about a subject the less concerned they are about it, the more secure it makes them feel; more prepared. People are scared of the

    The United States is not.” (End the Gun Epidemic in America). The argument they had used to retaliate at those facts were weak. By saying, “... at least those countries are trying,” means they’re not really trying hard enough. E specially if killers are getting their hands on guns.

    To begin with, gun control is useless for gun safety. There are many murder weapons to put us in danger, such as transportation, pest control, knife, and so on. If we only want to control gun ownerships to prevent harm, we also need to think about control other murder weapons. Also, if we have gun control, kids still have chances to play guns, if their parents have legal guns at home. It states that gun control is helpless to avoid kids to use guns.…

    Should Guns MUST Be Banned

    Columbine, Newtown, San Bernardino, and Charleston are all examples of the horrors of mankind and the actions they carried out. People pointed to guns as the culprit of those horrors, however the truth remains that people don’t take guns to court, but the person who shot the gun. And there is a reason for that. Although banning guns would make it more difficult to get ahold of them, guns shouldn’t be banned because it may not lower the crime rate and because of our Constitutional right to keep them. The statement heard all of the time now is that guns kill people, that guns are the leading cause of death in the US, and that guns MUST be banned in order to decrease the murder rate.…

    Why Is Gun Control Bad

    Because of this gun control arms the criminals who have no regard for the law and disarms the law abiding citizens who follow the law, when the other side says to get guns out of the “wrong hands”, they already have guns in their own, lastly according to an article about gun control states: “In a perfect world, gun control would mean going house to house throughout the nation and taking away every single firearm, including muzzle loaders. That would be impossible. Regardless of its constitutionality, gun owners would either fight back until there were a nationwide civil war or simply hide their weapons and claim they have none. Since most of those in the US are unregistered, no one knows who has what. Owners could…

    I feel that the term gun is badly used everyone is saying that guns are being taken away that’s not what they are trying to do with gun control. The government is using gun control to make it harder for criminals to get ahold of guns. Also it will be a bad thing because if you have a record for the state you will not be able to have your guns without going through a legal process to get the record taken away. It is for these reasons that I am against these and also because America should be able to protect themselves from criminals that do abuse firearms. Americans were given the right to bear arms by the founding fathers, it isn’t right that the government can just make a law to take away those rights but also I believe it can be a good thing to though.…

    When people feel like someone has taken something from them they don 't think straight they start act careless and can even start do criminal activity. If the right to bear arms was taken away it would make people like they no longer have any rights at all and it would make citizens feel like it is a dictatorship. Which is one thing that Americans hate is being told what to do. Also if guns become banned this will not stop criminals or reduce the crime rate. The criminals would just want to get the hands on the guns even more so they can sell it at a high rate for profit.…

    They would rather buy a gun off the black market because more than likely the serial number will not be present on the weapon. It will be scratched off so the weapon cannot be tracked. “The result of these studies appear to indicate that gun control laws have no effect on criminals.” (Alters 1) As a result, even though there are gun laws in place, criminals find a way around it. Criminals always have. This is often argued by people since they tend to ignore the fact that criminals will always have weapons.…

    Activist in favor of gun control believe that with gun control being enacted that the United States would not only be better off but safer as well. The other party who disbelieve in the need for gun control believe that with it the country will only grow more corrupt considering the facts that the states that have had gun constraints have grown more violent prove their point. Gun control would keep guns out of the United States for a short period after it would be enacted, but as soon as they are smuggled into the United States all of the citizens who had previously given up their arms now have no guns to defend themselves against robbers, muggers, or whoever it might be that threatens their lives. In order to keep guns better under control without taking away guns from citizens is by enforcing security in places like schools and for the government to keep track of who is mentally unstable and to make sure that there is no chance what so ever for them to get in reach of a…
