Quick Look at Gun Control

 

Gun control has been a controversial issue for years. A vast 

majority of citizens believe that if gun control is strictly enforced 

it would quickly reduce the threat of crime. Many innocent people feel 

they have the right to bear arms for protection, or even for the 

pleasure of hunting. These people are penalized for protecting their 

lives, or even for enjoying a common, innocent sport. To enforce gun 

control throughout the nation, means violating a persons 

Constitutional rights. Although some people feel that the issue of gun 

control will limit crime, the issue should not exist due to the fact 

that guns are necessary for self defense against crime, and by 

enforcing gun control is violating a citizens second amendment right 

to bear arms.

 Guns are evil to some, because of the violence that they 

create. People express guns as weapons of homicide. They insist that,

the more guns with which our society equips itself, the greater the 

likelihood for accidents or violent acts involving fire arms to occur. 

It is a proven fact that handguns have been the murder weapon of 

choice. Guns are involved in half of all homicide cases. People 

believe that society has relied on weapons that create harm and 

criminals. Therefore, these weapons should be outlawed.

 However, law abiding citizens have the right to protect 

themselves against danger. Due to the ownership of guns, burglaries

have reduced considerably. A gun is a tool, guns don't kill people. 

People kill people. The matter depends on who is using the gun, and 

what situation it is involved in. Purchasing a handgun legally is a 

complex procedure. The consumer must go through a two month waiting 

period. These procedure guarantee the innocence and reliability of a 

gun owner.

 The second amendment states the citizens right to own and bear 

firearms. Freedom to poses arms is a guaranteed citizen right. If the 

constitutional rights of a citizen are violated, it can be a complex 

issue. In the case of US vs Miller during the year of 1939, The 

supreme court voted against individual rights to bear arms. Nothing 

can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its 

own laws. This is why all citizens should be aware of all of their 

constitutional rights.

 Enforcing gun control is not going to have an effect on the 

crime rate, because it will not keep criminals from purchasing 

weapons. If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. If a 

person is willing to pay a price they will get what they want. Gun 

owners have to protect themselves from these criminals, and all gun 

owners must be informed of their second Amendment right to keep and 

bear arms.
