Gun Control
"I 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, and current President of the NRA, or National Rifle Association (Lacayo 16). I could not disagree more. The NRA is a special interest group known by many. As a lobbyist organization, the NRA has a current main objective of protecting American citizens' rights, to possess and operate a firearm, form being vio...

Such was the case of Colin Ferguson, who boarded a Long Island Railroad train in New York City. Ferguson proceeded to pull out a 9-millimeter p...

Gun Control
Before we discussed gun control in class, I thought that gun control was the perfect solution to crime. But is it? After spending many days in class debating gun control, I realized that there is much more to the subject than I thought. Many new questions arose in my head like: Does the government have the right to take away the freedom of owning a gun? Does gun control really decrease crime like I thought it would? Are we safer if we all have guns? These are all questions that I still do not ha...

Gun Control
Gun Control Guns have many functions. Some people use them for many different sports, some use them for protection, and some use them for murder. The Constitution of the United States of America gives us the right “to keep and bear arms”. This brings up a very good argument that guns should be outlawed because of the rise in violent crimes with firearms. Should this statistic ruin it for the rest of the nation who don’t use guns in violent crimes. These people use guns for legal rea...

Gun Control: Is it in the best interests of society?An increase in gun control is not in the best interests of society, it just provides a false sense of security. Through out history governments have used guns as a scapegoat for their problems with violent crime. Guns are not the problem when it comes to society's problems with violence, people are. Guns do not commit the crimes people do. You must control the criminals in order to control crime. The history of gun control in Canada has had...

Gun Control
Gun Control: What Is It? One of the most hotly debated topics today is gun control. But what exactly is gun control? Is it making it so hard to own that it takes away from the game or leaves someone in fear of not being able to protect themselves? Could it be that it is there to protect the innocent from being gunned down by a lunatic? All these are good questions and that is why the topic is hard to define, both sides have their own feelings on the issue and it is hard to find a happy me...

Unfortunately, there are many people who take the easy way out when it comes to a solution to this problem, they choose gun control. There are many facts that support my position in which I will explain. First of ...

Gun Control
Research Paper on Gun Control Americans are faced with an ever-growing problem of violence. The United States has the most heavily armed population on the earth, and are we not one of the world's most violent people societies? Surely these facts must be at least casually connected. Therefore, the apparently desperate need to "do something" about the vast quantity of firearms and firearms abuse is obvious. Our streets have become a battleground where the elderly are beaten for their social securi...

Gun Control
"Guns don't kill people; people kill people" is more true than gun control advocates admit. Look at the number of murders committed each year without guns. Stabbing deaths occur as often as gun deaths in this area and elsewhere. Would those who favor gun control also call for knife control? Do you think persons intent on murder are not imaginative enough to kill without guns or knives? I recall the 1982 murder of a woman with a sledgehammer by her estranged husband at a nearby shopping center. ...

Dear Mr. President: The issue of gun control in the United States has formed a public debate for quite a while now. Many are struggling to find a solution to the problem. The U.S. needs your help to stop guns from being misused. Guns are getting into the hands of people who shouldn t have them and these people are abusing the privilege of having the weapon they have. A perfect example is the tragedy in Columbine. I m not saying we have to ban guns, but we have to watch whose hands these gun...

Gun control, as we know it, consists of the government restricting the ability of individual citizens to purchase weapons.
