In 2014 the CDC reported that 11,008 of the 15,872 homicides committed in the U.S that year involved a firearm(School Violence).On April 16, 2007 Thirty-two people died when a mentally disturbed gunman at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia shot students around campus killing 32 people.This attack was the most deadly in a long line of school shootings in the United States.In june of 2008 the debate over criminal gun laws got more complicated. in the end the United States Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that U.S. citizens have an individual right to possess guns under the Constitution’s Second Amendment.there are two sides to this topic on stricter gun laws.”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”(Correl university). The quote above is the second amendment which was created in 1787. The amendment basically says that all U.S citizens have the right to own firearms. This amendment was okay for the 1700’s, but the only guns they had back then were semi-automatic muskets and rifles that don’t nearly compare to the full-auto ar-15’s and ak’s of today’s standards.One reason why people support making gun laws more strict it because they think that making gun laws more strict will stop gun violence.”In the U.S. in 2011, 67 percent of homicide victims were killed using a firearm: 66 percent of single-victim homicides and 79 percent of multiple-victim homicides. In the 19th century gun violence played a role in civil disorder such as the Haymarket riot” (wikipedia.org).a counter argument for the opposing side may that be In 1993 the amount of firearm deaths was about 18,000 and in 2011 its around 12,000. As the data above shows this problem is slowly getting better and fixing itself.this may be true but since then more rules and regulations have been added.One reason people oppose making gun laws more strict is because they think it won’t lower the rate of gun violence. ¨While firearm-related violent crime accounts for a relatively small proportion of all violent crime in Canada, it can have considerable physical, emotional, and psychological effects on those who are victimized, on families, and on communities (Hahn et al. 2005). As a result, firearm-related violent crime is a significant social concern. In addition, about one in five (21%) firearm-related deaths in Canada is the result of a criminal offence, while the majority (79%) are the result of suicide, accident, or legal intervention (Statistics Canada 2012)¨(/www.statcan.gc.ca). In the quote above it show that there? still gun crime in canada even with their stricter gun laws.Once again this can be argued against,¨Japan has one of the lowest rates of gun crime in the world. In 2014 there were just six gun deaths, compared to 33,599 in the US¨(http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-38365729). Japan has extremely strict gun laws and they make it very hard to get a firearm. But by not having a concealed weapons it makes citizens of japan more vulnerable to other crimes. Another reason people support this topic is because they want to lower the rate of illegal weapon trafficking and selling. ¨According to ATF, one percent of federally licensed firearms dealers are responsible for selling almost 60 percent of the guns that are found at crime scenes and traced to dealers¨ (awcenter.giffords.org/gun-traffickingprivate-sales-statistics/). In the Quote above it shows that a lot of the guns being sold in the U.S that are unregistered.In the thoughts of the supporters of stricter gun laws and making more regulations this can be stopped.a counter argument for this might be that makin gun laws more strict will not stop guns from being stolen from ownership legal gunsAnother reason people oppose the topic of making stricter gun laws is that they believe it’s unconstitutional and violates 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”(Correl university). The quote above explains that all citizens of the United States have the right to bear firearms or other weapons in the legal limits. And counter argument to this “could be in that sense this amendment was written there have been many more gun regulations and laws put in play. The question of changing the gun laws remains.is making gun laws more strict against the second amendment? Would stricter gun laws really stop gun violence? There are two sides to the topic of stricter gun laws. Which side are you on?
