Gun Control
Gun control is a very controversial topic, some people want it, and some people don’t. I’m going to tell you some of the reasons that create a valid argument for why there should be no gun control. Everyone needs protection, and guns provide that. If someone is breaking into your home, what do you reach for first? A gun is the most logical option, in most situations it’s either shoot or be shot. Would have those school shootings resulted in less violence if school staff would have been armed? Would great tragedies, like Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech and others; be less likely to happen again? No one knows the answer to these questions, but my guess is maybe so, maybe there would be less shootings; but to know we have to try. Gun control would make shootings/killings worse. Criminals don’t follow laws, but most people who are attacked do follow laws, and if their homes were attacked and they had no gun because of gun laws, crimes would be much easier for the criminals. If you outlaw arms, only outlaws will have arms. The ability to carry a firearm is not only a protector for you, but also a protector for those who are not carrying firearms around you. The Second Amendment states that "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." America is a free country and people have the right to own a gun. In my views, guns are a helper in a time of crisis when help is too far away, or unwilling to come. Rather than put more restrictions on guns and gun owners, we should maintain the ability to protect ourselves and our fellow Americans through the use of firearms. Therefore, because of these reasons, The Second Amendment, protection, and shootings, I believe there should be no gun control.
