Gun Control

 

Supporters  of gun control believe that the National  Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 are ineffective  in curbing the rampant proliferation and misuse of firearms in  society. More to the point, the easy access of weapons to high-risk  individuals, youths and criminals puts the safety of the law-abiding  segments of the population under unnecessary and unfair risks of  personal harm. They advocate the tightening of regulation in firearms  procurement, especially in the face of rising crime rates. The recent  spate of mass killings in country have seen increased calls for more  stringent regulations in the sales and distribution of firearms.  Statistics from the Center For Disease Control have shown a  disturbing increase in firearms related deaths to about 30,000  annually, and it shows no signs of abating.

The  Second Amendment.

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.‚ÄĚ

Gun  control opposition meanwhile points to their right to bear arms, as  enshrined in the Second Amendment, and any attempts to deny them this  infringes upon their constitutional right as citizens. Their position  was further reinforced by a High Court ruling in 2008, which asserts  the rights of private citizens to bear arms. Furthermore, the  firearms industry lobbyist claims that there is no correlation  between guns and increased rates in crimes and fatalities, citing the  media, drugs and the socioeconomic factors as a more likely cause.  The National Rifle Association (NRA) also argues that increased  regulations would potentially leave more families defenseless against  dangerous elements of the society, endangering them further.

 

‚ÄĘ I support enforcing gun laws at the time of sale with background checks and educated vendors.

‚ÄĘ I would confiscate illegally owned guns and guns that are illegal for civilians to own.

‚ÄĘ I believe that assault weapons should be banned, ‚Äúwho needs them except criminals and police?‚ÄĚ
