    Argumentative “You can have all the gun control laws in the country, but if you don’t enforce them, people are gonna find a way to protect themselves. We need to recognize that bad people are doing bad things with these weapons. It’s not the law-abiding citizens, it’s not the person who uses it as a hobby” (Steele). There are around 100,000 victims of gun violence each year (“Brady Campaign...”). Action needs to be taken so Americans don’t feel unprotected going into a public environment. By tightening gun control laws, America can become a safe place for everyone and keeping guns out of the hands of people tempted to make bad choices. Tightening gun laws is essential for the US to save lives. These violent acts are getting worse; it shows…

    Buying a gun takes no time and only requires a background check in most states. In most states, “55% of U.S. households with children have firearms in them that are in unlocked places” (Statistics on Youth Gun Violence & Gun Access). Half of the American households own a firearm, and with them being in unlocked places that can probably guarantee that the children have seen them. According to the Statistics on Youth Gun Violence & Gun Access: “73% of kids ages 9 and under have reported seeing the…

    estimate of 265 million guns. I believe gun control should not exist in the United States, because it is an immense threat to the second amendment.

    Gun Control Every time we flip on the news we see a new story explaining a shooting in Chicago. Drive-by shootings are so common now in Chicago that we barely have time to explain one story without skipping to the next current one. To assume that we do not have a problem with guns in the Chicago/Illinois community is wrong. This is a nationwide problem as we have seen with mass shootings and the increasing numbers of deaths nationwide from gunshot wounds. Just this weekend as I began to write…

    The effects of gun control I feel could be very dangerous. Taking away the right to bear arms could endanger defenseless families when an armed criminal breaks into their house. Taking firearms off of the legal market doesn’t mean that they still won’t be bought and sold illegally. An example of something that is illegal but widely bought and sold would be drugs. They are highly illegal but the demand for them is through the roof. So then, when the common law abiding citizen cannot buy a firearm…

    herself in the leg. No one was injured except for her, but next time how can we be sure? In today’s society, guns are the center of controversy. If guns are being argued that they shouldn’t be legal in any setting, why would we promote them in an educational setting with the youth and future of America at risk every day? That is why we negate the resolution that teachers should have the right to conceal and carry firearms on school grounds. For my first point, I assert that guns in school take…

    weapons-- firearms. Guns’ very existence can either harm or use to defend. The issue lies on who exactly gets hold of these weapons. Who should we trust? How should such laws be justified?

    The topic of gun control and whether or not it should be stricter is a very controversial one. As a student in an education system that has seen more mass shootings than I’d care to count, understanding and being informed on this issue is important to me. Therefore, the question must be asked; To what extent does gun control impact the lives of the citizens of the United States? For every 100 people in the US, there are approximately 88.8 guns. That means there are roughly 270,000,000 guns,…
