Guns are daring. We use them in war to kill people. Guns are also the cause of thousands of deaths every year. It is safe to say that guns cause more problems than good in our society. This is why I do not have a problem with those that want stricter gun laws. However people say, People are dangerous not guns there’s a higher chance that you might die from a car than a firearm .So are cars dangerous? People say why do you need a firearm with large capacity? Why do u need a car that has 600 hp .You’re not going to go 170 on the streets that's against the law. People are very unstable when you look at them. People get angry and that is a fact. Why would we allow fire arms to be sold freely if the human species can get so unstable? I think that if you show images of guns as well as showing images of how a man should be for an example Army husband with a gun in his hand, then you will feel like it is cool to fire assault rifles. I have read with interest those of you who state that guns should not be banned because hardened criminals will still have access to them and you feel that you need to protect yourselves. So I thought that I would do a little research on gun related violence and compare the US, where almost anyone can get a gun with Great Britain where gun ownership is highly restricted. In 2012 the number of gun related violent crimes per 100,000 was 10.2 or one per every 10,000 people, which based on the current population means that almost 32,000 Americans were gun crime victims.Whereas in the UK that figure was 0.25 per 100,000 people, which works out to 147 people.
There is no reason that Americans should be able to buy massive amounts of firearms and ammunition, when the only purpose for such things is the taking of other human lives. If more guns truly make America safer, as pro-gun activists like to claim, then why is America the ONLY country where mass-shooting continue to take place? It's time to get reasonable about the 2nd amendment and what our forefathers were really advocating for.
Many of the gun laws which have been proposed do not alter an individual's access to guns, and sensationalism in the media has distorted the discussion between those seeking to toughen gun laws and those seeking to prevent their guns from being "taken." Most proposed laws have been only for stricter background checks for individuals purchasing guns, which is a common-sense thing to do. If a man has a history of domestic abuse, he should not get a gun and be able to use deadly force. Perhaps weeding out those people who have violent backgrounds would help to prevent future disasters.
Yes, there should be stricter guns laws in America. Gun-related death and injury is not a problem in many other countries which have stricter gun laws. Regulating guns could greatly reduce the number of mass-shootings and violence in the nation's cities. In 2012, there were over 8,000 firearm-related homicides in the United States alone. Owning a gun is privilege, and with privilege comes regulation.
In light of all of the recent mass shootings, I believe it is common sense that there should be more strict gun laws followed in this country. Stricter background checks should be employed as well as other measures such as mental health screenings that would possibly help control the gun violence. However, taking away guns will never be the answer.
