Gun Control Analysis Essay
Gun control have been on the forefronts of debate since the 1960’s when there were some high profile shootings. The increase of gun violence since the 1980’s has just increased the argument over who should be allowed to own and carry weapons. The Second Amendment is the biggest stumbling block in this debate because people interpreted it differently. The one side argues that it states that we have the right to bear arms, but the other side says that it doesn’t pertain to us anymore in the modern era. Politicians love to use the idea that removing legal guns will drastically reduce suicides, asassinations, gang-violence, school shootings, accidental child deaths, and general murders. They don’t consider the fact that someone that wants to kill themselves will do it anyway they can, or a college kid trying to tear up his school will just blow it up if he cant find a gun. Gang’s don’t use registered guns to commit their crimes, they use black market weapons. The result of implementing full gun control will not only endager the civilians of the country because they cannot defend themselves, but will also lead to people losing their freedom and living in fear. The criminals should be living in fear because they know that their victims have the ability to retaliate when attacked. The fact is that modern gun control laws only protect the criminal and the image of the government’s control over the people. The people of the USA should have the ability to defend themselves, to defend their own freedom, before the country ends up being run by criminals or by an all-powerful and corrupt government like the Hitler regimes.
