    Anit Gun Control Should there be gun control? Do we the people need help from the government to set guidelines and bans out to keep us safe? If we did, would the prices we pay surmount the desired results. No, gun control is not a constitutionally sound device nor does it protect us. Gun control is not a new tool. In the past century it was used repeatedly by great rulers/dictators. However, these rulers used it as a tool to manipulate and de-power a nations people. Before Hitler took over and began his quest of racial cleansing, he banned guns from all citizens. Do you think that the stories of 2/3 of euro-jews being led to death like sheep would have been the same if they were armed? I do ...

    Gun Control Gun Control Gun control is a law concerning firearms. A year ago, when it was just some obscure bill, and people were fighting it, I didn't know what it was. It seemed lots of people were fighting it so it must have been bad. I want to show people it is bad. That is what my essay is about. The government may have had good intentions of fighting crime by registering guns so that the police would know if a gun was involved in a crime, whose gun it was. The downside to this is, what criminals are going to register their guns? Imagine this: you are a criminal, and you are going to commit a crime with a gun. Are you going to register the gun that you are going to register the gun that ...

    Gun Control Gun Control In today's society, one of the major problems we face is the use, and misuse of guns. Guns are deadly weapons that can change a person's life physically and emotionally, mostly when it is not used properly. Many people possess at least one handgun either in purses or in homes for protection, while others own guns for their own pleasure. Despite the fact that a gun can protect a person during self-defense, it can also be dangerous because it can hurt and kill someone. If a gun is kept at home, the chance of a person harming a family member other than an intruder, is five times higher (Bender 140). Although it may serve as a protection to an individual, it can also be m ...

    Gun Control annon AI say all guns are good guns. There are no bad guns. I say the whole nation should be an armed nation. Period.@ This rather bold statement was made by Joseph Foss. Former Governor Joseph Foss, a former fighter pilot for the US Air Force, is the current President of the NRA, or National Rifle Association (Lacayo 16). The NRA is a special interest group known by many. Its members are stereotyped to be a group of >truck-driving=, pompous, huntsmen. Indeed this is partially true, as 97% of all NRA members are suburban men. Because the organization is a more >Domestic Blend=, it is a surprising fact that the NRA is a powerful lobbyist organization. And skeptically viewed ...

Firearms were used for hunting and protection. As the modern era came upon us, there became a lesser need to own a firearm because of a controlled police force and a surplus in food. The surplus in food and modern law enforcement, along with rising firearm crimes prompted the government to start reviewing gun laws. Furthermore, over the past century the right to bear a firearm has been restricted by many laws. These laws are instated to help prevent accidental and planned deaths attributed by firearms. The question sti ...

    Gun Control Because our constitution guarantees our citizens the right to bear arms, we cannot make gun ownership illegal. We can reduce the problem by doing the following two things. Require all gun owners to be licensed. Require all guns to be registered to licensed owners. All guns would be required to have a serial number. Guns without serial numbers would be given one. Any unregistered gun would be confiscated. The gun could be returned after the owner gets his/her license. Gun sales to unlicensed individuals would be prohibited. Whenever a gun is sold the previous owner would report the sale including the new owner's license number. A previous owner not reporting a gun sale could be li ...

    Gun Control Are you ready to die? Whats more, are you ready to kill? When you hold a gun anywhere but the firing range youd better be ready and able to use it or die. Dont get me wrong; just because you carry a gun doesnt mean people automatically start being violent towards you but if you get in a fight and someone realizes you have a gun its more than likely that they will pull one and shoot you if they have it. Most people think that a gun will make them invincible but the truth is: Every bullet is another life and every gun is another instrument of death. The more people that carry guns, the more people that die. On the flip side, if nobody but the military carries guns then the people t ...

In the New England Journal of Medicine, an important study of 743 gunshot deaths done by Dr. Arthur Kellermann and Dr. Donald Reay, found that 398 of these deaths had taken place in a home where the handgun was kept. It was not a criminal stranger who shot them, but instead family or relatives, spouses, roommates, or themselves. Altercations within the home accounts for 84% of these homicides. Of all 743 gunshot deaths, there were only two that occurred in homes involving intruders killed while attempting to enter, and nine deaths justified through police and court analysis.

    Gun Control The debate over gun control has developed into a very complicated issue. Several different groups have suggested limiting the use of guns and others have proposed to supporting free gun use. On one side, people who use some form of gun control imply that guns are responsible for too many deaths and injuries in the United States. They propose that laws be passed to make guns more difficult or impossible for ordinary citizens to own. On the other side are those people who oppose all or nearly all forms of gun control. This paper will propose three different issues to argue against the element of gun control. First, we need to control the people who use the guns, not the guns themse ...
