Gun Control
Gun Control for the Masses Gun control has always been a very controversial subject in American society. Hundreds of millions of websites are dedicated to the subject. Few are realistic, and many are absurdly extreme. Every website on the Internet seems to have a different definition of the second amendment, which deals with the right to bear arms. The more extremist sights believe one should be able to carry a weapon wherever and whenever you want, and the most conservative believe no one s...

Gun Control
“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” It has been said millions of times by too many people to quote. For almost as long as guns have been around gun control has been a major issue throughout the world. As we look back on the past we find that gun control doesn’t really help reduce crime. Another down side of gun control is that if the government takes away the right to own weapons then they will start to think they can take other rights away. With every new anti gun law passed...

GUN CONTROL
         I do not believe any one of us would want just anyone to be able to buy any kind of weapon they want. What I do believe is the issue at hand is not gun control but crime. That is what our main focus as a nation should be. Let's stop treating the symptoms and start treating the decease.         In a recent article of Gun Control: An Issue for the Nineties. David Newton, of New Jersey reviles. "In 1994, 18,954 Americans were murdered...

Gun Control
America’s Right to Be Armed The debate over gun control has developed into a very complicated issue. Several different groups have suggested limiting the use of guns and others have proposed to supporting free gun use. On one side, people who use some form of gun control imply that guns are responsible for too many deaths and injuries in the United States. They propose that laws be passed to make guns more difficult or impossible for ordinary citizens to own. On the other side are those...

Americans are faced with an ever-growing problem of violence. Our streets have become a battleground where the elderly are beaten for their social security checks, where terrified women are viciously attacked and raped, where teen-age gangsters shoot it out for a patch of turf to sell their illegal drugs, and where innocent children are caught daily in the crossfire of drive-by shootings. We cannot ignore the damage that these criminals are doing to our society, and we must take actions to s...

A safe plan of action should be taught to everyone. It should correspond with a person's age. This safe plan of action hopefully will be learned and practiced before a pe...
