Gun Control Essay Research Paper Guns have

Gun Control Essay, Research Paper

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 reasons. Guns are a very big risk to the

safety to the American population. With guns in the hands of criminals, they are

able to perpetrate serious crimes. If you put a ban on guns there would be a

decrease of violent crimes. With fewer guns on the street, there would be less

of a chance of you being attacked with a gun. Violent crimes wouldn?t

disappear, they would decrease. In his essay Desuka states, ?True, even if

handguns are outlawed, some criminals would manage to get them, but surely fewer

petty criminals will have guns.? (423). A ban on guns will hurt the economy

greatly. When the ban is imposed, the government will have to reimburse gun

owners for surrendering their guns. ?the number of handguns is estimated to be

between 50 million and 90 million, the cost will be considerable, but it will be

far less than the costs-both in money and sorrow- that result from deaths due to

handguns.? (Desuka 423). This statement totally justifies the ban on guns. The

economy will surely suffer but that is nothing compared to the pain associated

with burying a family member. By putting a ban on guns, it is a violation of the

second amendment. I believe it is more than justified. What would you rather

have? One less constitutional right or one less loved one? In this case, the

violation of the second amendment is the least of our worries. Our most

important worry is getting the guns off the streets.
