Should america have strict gun control laws ?

Asked by: Jimtompson
  • Why should this even be even a question ?

    I am really astounded then in USA, they are still debating about guns without taking action. Other countries, they have law on banning guns for many years ago such as UK and Australia, yet the only places where people can carry guns is only in the USA.

    It sadden me deeply that public mass shooting is such a common phenomenon. I feel deeply sorry for the kids and parents who are afraid of going to school just because of school shooting. In UK, we don't have fear at all when we go to school or other public places because we feel safe here.

    I guest it's an emergency that american need to confiscated guns from citizen now, to saves lives of our innocent children.

  • Yes without a dispute, there should be a law on banning guns.

    Believe me or not, but here are some facts about guns and gun violence. I have read another topic on the internet that i want to revealed you guys :
    -in 2013 33,636 american died of injuries cause by guns.
    -According to 2012 Congress research service estimate that there are 310 millions civilian guns, 114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 millions shotguns. The latter estimate that there were 88.8 guns every 100 people in the USA, there were 307 million people in the US in 2009, which mean the CRS there were more guns than people.

    -Gun homicide are considerable more common in US than in peer countries.There were 35.5 gun homicide per million people in the US in 2013 in compare to only 4.9 per million in canada, and 0,93 per million in UK.

    -Most homicide in the US ( 69.5 % ) are committed with guns. Bureau Statistic show that only 39 % of gun homicide fell while non-fatal firearms crimes fell 69 %.

    -Places with more guns have more homicides.

    -There are more gun suicide and gun homicide. Most gun death compromise suicide. In 2013 21,175 people commit suicide by firearms, while 11,208 people died from gun homicide.In total 33,636 people died from firearms injuries in 2013.

    -Suicide is more common in places with more guns. Studies suggest that suicide attempt by guns are fatal in the vast majority of cases while attempt suicide by cuts or poisoning are fatal 6-7 % of the time.

    - A cogressional research service report in 2013 identified 78 public mass shootings between 1983 and 2002 which claimed 547 lives.


    To sum up these are just few examples of guns facts. There are many more. But these are facts that i have find it on the internet.

  • Yes, it's an urgent need.

    As long as american refuse to take step to implement gun control, mass shootings will continue to occuring. If you don't want incidents like Sandy hook elementary school shooting or just recently florida parkland shooting happen again, then you should take action to implement gun control.

    Take a look at UK or Australia. Since they enact gun control law, no school shooting occuring and the firearms homicide and suicide has dramatically gone down.

  • More than we have now

    The gun death rate in the United States is considerably higher than the UK, Australia, Japan and Sweden. Are Americans more homicidal by nature, or is it because they have enforced gun laws? There was a school shooting in Scotland in 1996, after which the British government implemented stricter gun control laws, and they have not suffered a major shooting spree since.

  • Yes absolutely it should.

    Ok Guys listen to me. If we don't have gun control, people will continue to be killed by guns homicide. You don't look in the News or newspaper how often public mass shooting occur in USA ? Mass shooting in USA happen every month while gun homicide happen every day. Here are some example of public shootings :

    1.Columbine High school massacre - april, 20 1999
    2.Red Lake shootings - March 21, 2005
    3.Virginia Tech shootings - April 16, 2007
    4.Binghamton shootigs- April 3. 2009
    5.Fort Hood shooting - Nov 5 , 2009
    6.Tucson shooting - Jan 8 2011
    7.Sandy Hook elementary shooting- Dec 14, 2012
    8.Aurora shootings- July 20, 2012
    9.Washington Navy yard shooting- Sept, 16 2013
    10.Charleston church shooting- June 17, 2015
    11.Orlando night club shooting-June 12, 2016
    12. Las Vegas shooting- Oct1. 2017

    Yet i still heard from you morons saying guns don't kill people,people kill people. What if bullets, rip your body apart, would you still deny guns don't kill people ? I find it's very selfish thinking to say such stuff and especially it offend very much to those deaths and survivors of mass shootings.

  • Guns are as dangerous as C4 explosive weapon

    When you fired with a gun, you can kill and wound many people in one places. For example the Las vegas shooting, killed up to 59 people and 851 people are seriously injured. That's is as harmful as C4 explosive weapon. No wonder why criminals use guns to commit crime because you can kill more than with a knives. To get killed by a guns is a quick death and it achieve much higher rate of fatality than with a knives or a hammer.

    A knives or a hammer can't kill so many people in one places. This is the reason why we should confiscated guns from all citizens because it can be misused very easily and the consequences are seriously fatal.

  • Gun Control Laws?..... YES

    Our constitution has the Bill of Rights for a reason, the Second Amendment says..."A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." I do agree with this mainly because of the First Amendment which then says...."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Meaning that if you have the RIGHT to say whatever you please then you're going to need something to defend your self with, this includes guns. Most importantly I believe Restrictions must be implied for the country of America to prosper. A civilian with a mental disorder should NOT be able to access a gun. Why? Well we have seen the consequences over the years yet we seem not to understand the effects of giving a 21 year with mental problems a gun.

  • Facts state we need to follow the lead of the world

    The database of gun death per 100,000 in the state of Massachusetts(lowest in the US) is 3.4 while the rate per 100,000 in Alaska(highest in the US) is 23.3. What is Massachusetts doing? Well they require a permit to get a gun of any kind, require the owner of the gun to present a license, ban assault rifles, require background checks, restrict magazine limit(limit how much ammunition one can have) and restrict NFA weapons. Maybe we should follow their lead.

  • If guns are taken away, who will keep them?

    The criminals. They broke laws to get those guns, and they will break just one more law. Lets just say everyones guns were taken away. We would all be vulnerable to attacks. The attacker would have a gun, and we would not. The school shooting rate would stay the same, and its not the guns fault. Schools should improve on their security to prevent shootings.

  • Freedom before security.

    While guns can be scary for some, they are true symbols of liberty and the last line of defense against a tyrannical government. No freedoms can permanently exist without the right to bear arms. Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union both had strict gun control. Imagine if the Jewish population in Germany and Poland had ready access to firearms.

  • Nope. Guns aren't the problem

    You are right when saying that less guns cause less gun related deaths. What you don't realise is that when you take away guns, death by other means are going to happen. In Japan gun laws got rid of gun deaths but now hammer related deaths are now at an all time high in that country. Might as well take away hammers! If you try and hide the problem, you're never gonna get rid of it, which is why the only way to stop these deaths is to more harshly punish the people who commit these crimes. Its the people, not the guns.

  • Only police should have guns... Nobody else

    Lots of people with guns are school shooting a lot more in 2018 because of Donald Trump... Only Police Officers should have guns than more other people... And people who are in the army should have guns as well because they have valid licences to have the guns. Therefore army men and police officers should only have guns.

  • Guns are good

    Guns are good because they are a good tool to kill people aswell to harm yourself. Guns are out of control now a days alot of people die they are safe in the right hands if you are not a fan of guns and America just move to Canada or Mexico - the illusion

  • Depends on controls.

    Should specific people or groups be prevented from possessing firearms? Yes. People prone to violence like the mentally ill and criminals should be barred from gun ownership. In fact, if your a danger to others, you should be held until you no longer pose a threat. After all, if your bent on killing or causing harm to others, anything could be used as a weapon.
    Should law abiding people be restricted? Not at all. In fact, existing regulations go too far. If you read the text of the 2nd Amendment, you will see the purpose of citizens owning guns is in the event we are attacked by foreign nations. Tho they may bomb hard targets like military bases, they would likely land on softer targets that pose less threat. With bases damaged/destroyed, less military would be able to rush to the aid of citizens. This means that citizens would be the first line of defense. Clearly the foreign nation would equip their soldiers with military style weapons so to restrict or prohibit weapons to citizens would leave them at the mercy of a foreign nation. Odds are, the enemy would use citizens as human shields making it increasing harder for our military to retake land they occupy without civilian losses. If citizens are allowed effective weaponry, they may organize as a militia to fend off an attack. This would not only allow more time for our military to arrive but give time for unarmed citizens to escape. Once our military does arrive, they could also assist them by either helping in the fight or other forms of aid to our troops. Obviously, it's much easier to repel troops than to expel them after they have dug in and you can't repel troops without effective weaponry.

  • No we shouldn't

    The second amendment stated that every militia have a right to bear arms. Gun control would clear infringe those rights.

    Also guns are not to blame. It's just a tool. You can kill people with a knives, hammer, or any other dangerous weapon. You can even kill people by beaten them to death or vehicle car or allowing them be eaten alive by animals.

    Anything can be possibly a weapon. Guns are just a tool. If we confiscated all guns, we would end up like in mexico, where citizens are being left defenseless against criminals. Mexico is the most dangerous country, yet they have strict gun control law.

  • Guns aren't the issue.

    The issue is people who don't know how to use them. In the recent school shooting in Parkland, FL, the on-campus officer hid in the parking lot. If they had had a trained officer who was willing to do what needed to be done, a lot fewer teens would've been killed.

    If you look at the statistics, in the UK, robberies occur three times more than in the US. Why is that? People here are afraid of guns and how others can defend themselves with them.

  • Guns are not the problem

    Here in america we idolize the victims of tragically as if they know everything about everything tin the topic. The real issue here is the countless and relentless bullying that goes on in the school system, i dare you to place a loaded gun on a table pointed at you, and i bet you $10000000000000 that as long as no one touches it it will not shoot you. Guns are not the problem, its this idiotic generation in america, its the news idolizing people who know nothing about guns, its people who try to say assault rifles are an actual thing (assault is the thing you do to another person, i could have an assault chair for gods sake). We as a nation need to look at the real issue, and its us, not guns
