Gun laws are important, but are stripping us of our rights. The second amendment in the U.S. constitution says that Americans have the right to bear arms. Restricting gun use for most people takes away our rights as Americans. Criminals don't care about the law, so the government adding more gun restrictions just makes citizens more more vulnerable. Also, if we strengthen gun laws we could be harming people jobs, like people who work at shooting ranges or gun shops. Gun laws are good to a limit, and I think that limit has been passed. People are being robbed of their rights as Americans, being made more vulnerable to criminals and can effect peoples jobs. This is why I think gun laws should not be strengthened.
Gun laws should be a lot more strict,especially after all of these shootings in the United States. The second amendment was made first of all in 1791, where obviously people used guns to protect themselves, against people they deemed to be dangerous. Guns have been causing more and more problems around the United States. There have been 353 shootings this year, and mind you, there are only 365 days in a year. Why is this number so close to the number of days in a year, when clearly we are doing nothing to stop this. There is this thing called the "Gun-show Loophole", which is a loophole for people who buy and sell guns at Gun shows around the United States. This loophole always almost anyone to buy and sell guns, WITHOUT the use of an ID, or a background check. Why would anyone in the right mind, want to have people who may be crazy owning guns in the first place? (Not being mean about this :)) No one has seemed to do anything about this growing problem, and this needs to change. America needs to start realizing that the gun violence will not stop until guns are harder for people to obtain
Many shootings have occurred in the United States, yes. We insist it's because we are not strict enough on gun laws. In many of these shootings, if someone had a gun and shot the attacker, many lives would have been saved. It may not be logical to simply give out guns, but at the same time, we still need to be able to obtain them, just in a more safe matter. The people who have committed crimes with guns are the real issue. They will still break in to places to get a gun, or do whatever they can to get a gun, law or no law. Yes, the second amendment was written a long time ago, before shootings were an issue, but we have not passed another amendment canceling it out, meaning it is still to be practiced today, no matter when it was written. Taking it away would be stripping what makes us America, Land of the Free.
Not only have I now made it clear that this is a right of Americans until further changed, but now my opponent will not even attend to their argument! What I have stated before is what I hold to, so I have no more to say.
